Featured & Honorable Guests:
N8 Walka, Indie Rap Sensation & Author Of Jamie Foxx's Hit "Blame It"
Indie recording artist Nate (N8) Walka is what some would call different, but being different is what keeps this young talent motivated. After releasing his first released mixtape NATE OBAMA, Nate Walka introduces THE INAUGURATION. Reminiscent of the sounds of Kanye West and NERD, this Memphis born rapper, singer, song writer, and producer fuses together up beat and energetic tracks like “Crazy” and “My World” that are very much retro 80’s meets Hip Hop. Teamed up with SHWAYZE, from MTV’s Buzzin’, Nate Walka will be on tour starting in San Francisco promoting upcoming single “CrAzY“ as well as his new mixtape. After landing his first placement with Jamie Foxx’s new upcoming release “Blame it on the Alcohol” ft. T -Pain, when asked about his music Nate says, he likes to try out new sounds and styles and then combine them. “I want to keep the attention of my listeners so I present them with a good variety. Each track has a different feel.” Not only does Nate mix various styles together he also allows genres to mingle on tracks like, “I’m on Fiyahh” Rock and Hip Hop are sharing this stage. A few projects that Nate is currently working on are completing his debut album along with working with the new group signed under the Neptunes label, Chester French.
