Nato Caliph: Emcee

In an era where many emcees are 50 shades of fake, Nato Caliph lives comfortably in the space that others who share the mic run from — reality.

Some men grow up, others change their clothes 3 times during a freestyle set and rap about how hard they are even though they spent 3 hours getting prettied up to go out. Aint none of that fool’s gold in any of Nato’s lyrics or persona.

If you’re looking for a new, real and refreshing sound, then you’re looking for Nato Caliph. If you’re ready for lyrics that mean something, then you’re ready for Nato Caliph. If you’re in the industry and looking to work with someone who is sick on the mic and respected as the go-to guy for getting things done, then that, too, is Nato Caliph. A man among emcees.
