  • Please listen to my NF – When I Grow Up (cover) enjoyed making this cover and put a lot of time into it so would be greatly appreciated if you could take a minute to listen 🙏🖤

  • With the garbage truck picking garbage NF basically told every rapper that he was gonna take the trash rap to the truck right before he became a rapper

  • Yeah, when I grow up, you know what I wanna be?
    Take a seat, let me tell you my ridiculous dreams
    I wanna rap, yeah, I know it's hard to believe
    And I can tell you're already thinkin' I will never succeed
    But I'm okay with it, I admit the lyrics are weak
    I been workin' on 'em, I'll be good eventually
    I understand you gotta crawl before you get to your feet
    But I been running for a while, they ain't ready for me, ah

    I know this probably isn't really realistic
    And honestly, I might not ever make a difference
    But that don't make a difference, I'ma have to risk it
    I been crunchin' numbers, you ain't gotta be a mathematician
    To see the odds ain't rootin' for me
    I can't lie though, it's kinda how I like it to be
    The underdog, yeah, you probably think you know what I mean
    But what I'm saying is they ever push me, I'm gonna swing, yeah

    I could go to college, get in debt like everybody else
    Graduate and probably get a job that doesn't pay the bills
    That don't make a lot of sense to me, forget the Happy Meals
    I don't like the dollar menu, I would rather make a mil'
    Huh? Make a meal? Nah, I said make a mil'
    Home-cookin', get the grill, how you want it? Pretty well?
    Everything I see is overdone to me, I'm not Adele
    But I'ma get a record deal and say hello to mass appeal

    When I grow up, I just want to pay my bills
    Rappin' about the way I feel, oh yeah
    I just want to make a couple mil'
    Leave it to the fam in the will, oh yeah
    I just want to sign a record deal
    Maybe buy a house up in the hills, oh yeah
    Might not be the best in my field
    But I guarantee that I'ma die real

    Mockin' me, you pay the fee, no return and no receipts
    Those of you that don't believe, quiet, you don't know a thing
    Quiet when I'm tryna sing, quiet when I'm making beats
    Quiet when I'm tryna think, sorry, I don't mean to scream
    I just feel like no one really gets me and it's sad to see
    'Cause someday I'ma grow up and show all of you it's meant to be, yeah

    Anybody wanna hear me rap? "No"
    Come on, let me play a couple tracks, "No"
    Come on, I can spit it really fast, "No"
    You think I should throw this in the trash? "No"
    Tricked you, haters, go away before I hit you
    I am not a beggar or a kiss-up
    You don't understand? Well, I forgive you
    I am not a quitter, you ain't really think that, did you?
    Maybe someday I could even be up on the radio
    Have a tour bus and maybe even play a couple shows
    Everybody in the crowd singin' every word I wrote
    Tellin' me that I am not the only one that feels alone
    Huh? You feel alone? Yeah, I kinda feel alone
    Wonder if that feelin' ever goes away when you get old
    Will I ever make it as an artist? I don't really know
    Might not make a lot of dough, I'ma have to try it, though

    When I grow up, I just want to pay my bills

  • holy shit people saying whos here in 2019 are stupid it came out in 2019 and its 2019 rn. at this moment theres literally no other year you could listen to this in

  • NF comes around the neighbor hood with a dumpster truck picking up rappers.

    NF: I'll put them in the back with the trash

    Me: Where they belong. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • When i'm sick and my throght hurts i don't mind when i sing/yell out the lyrics to NFRealmusic but then after that my sister and brother yell at me for singing to loud.

    ( i'm sorry for the incorrect spelling)

  • I like the trash truck because that's what I do. Among others. Just make sure you wear gloves AIDS is no joke. Love you NF. Stay real.

  • Thank u for not being another mumble rapper that just wants sex and money and thinks if u put women shaking there ass it’s a good song this song actually sends a message that is empowering , so thank u love the song

  • Nate is so humble, it amazes me. The other rappers are flexing-showing off expensive cars that probably isn't even theirs, while nate is is over here pushing shopping carts and hanging around in garbage trucks.

  • Intro 2 : i remember the show when only 2 people were there smiling. He ain't going nowhere.
    Goes from 2 people to a full stage.

  • Thailand is one…..of the country which is awful at peacefulness
    Example:
    Domestic Violence , Bully , Murder , Rape , Social conflicts , Political conflicts , The President who have been hate by the people(half of country , maybe?, he got yelled by the people so many times) , The decline of people in religion , Corruption , Brawl til death , High ego, Separation of Conflicts , Subversion of King by some stupid people groups , The use of violence to suppress……its so many🤕🤕🤕
    I didn't sell my country but………..
    These day it worsening…….
    half of thai peoples always use their ego and feeling to make a decisions what they should do😢😢😢
    You can know the truths of this country at the music name "Which is my country"😕😕😕
    (i'm thai too😐😐😐)
