Upon the opening bars of Nate G’s most recent single “Time To Eat”, he states: “They say the loudest in the room usually really weak”, which best describes him as the first few times I met Nate, he was pretty quiet, until he got onstage and produced an in your face trap sound that is one of the best coming out of Portland at the moment. Since changing from his previous alias Kidd Kidd, Nate has been steadily working with Seattle artist iLLChris, most recently being featured on his singles “Weigh On Me” and the Metro Boomin produced hit “Gravel”, with RudeAssMogli. Keep your eyes on Nate as he is well on his way to dropping not one, but two projects in the very near future.

What/Who Are Your Main Inspirations For Making Music?
Since a youngin’ I always was a fan of music, my sis used to take me to all the concerts of my favorite artists. Also my older brothers made music too so it was something I kinda fell into, then started taking it serious rather than it just being a hobby. Jay Z, Pharrell, Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane & Curren$y are some of the artists that inspire me with their work ethic, and also my mother for the simple fact she always holds me down in anything I do
Who Are Some Producers You Work With?
YT808, Bravo Domo, Dirty Vans & Roderigo Banks of 808 Mafia just to name a few
Are You Affiliated With Any Artists Or Crews?
My bro since 3rd grade J Plath me & him are actually a group called Felony Flats, also iLL Chris and RudeAssMogli, we all rep #CNSRS together. I got a lot of relationships with cats so it’s really if you rock with me I rock with you type of thing, ya know?
Who Are Some Artists You Wish To Work With In The Future?

You’ve done a lot of work with iLLChris, how did you guys link up and get your relationship started?
I met Chris in like ’09, he’s been like a brother to me ever since. I actually lived with him for a sec. I used to take trips up to Seattle just on my solo tip and we’d always end up linking up, whether it be money moves or the studio.
What do you think of the Portland and Seattle music scenes, after spending much time involved in both?
They are both definitely on the rise and I’m proud of the place they both at right now. Everybody working to put the NW on the map.
