NF/Mansion/Capitol

NF's 'Mansion', aptly titled, is an album that walks you through the house of the artist's personal reflections on life as you listen to him narrate the significance of each room. NF's lyrics convey honest and emotional messages. This is why the songs are oftentimes a combination of the lyrical ingenuity and strong beats of rap, the emotionalism of rock, and soul-felt singing--NF combines all of these elements effectively. Musically reminds me of an intense version of TobyMac with rap skill and musings similar to Andy Mineo and LeCrae. No FCC Violations. Reviewed by Christina Erwin, Lift Jesus Higher!
