What’s the meaning behind your name?
Well my real name’s Nathan, it got shortened to Nate. It’s a constant introduction I suppose, people have to know what it is, and It’sNate.
What other names have you had?
Bad ones, Nateflow was pretty dead.
Which song of yours would you first want people to hear?
Hmmm, Call Me A Cab… or Schemin’ or Bonds… there’s a lot.
Who was your Hip Hop idol growing up?
Didn’t have an idol, ’cause that’s a funny word. But Grafh was a big deal to me.
Which musician would you most like to work with?
I cant pick one – there’s a lot, I want to work with singers… Dwele, The Internet, The Streets, AFTA 1. I find musicians every day that I would want to make music with. Picking one is hard and after I finish this, more names are going to jump into my head.
If you weren’t making music, what would you be doing instead?
Working, working hard.
What’s success to you?
Peace of mind.
Which country produces the best food and women?
I don’t think I’m well travelled enough to comment on this… I don’t want to black ball myself.
What’s your vice?
What’s your favourite animal?
A Mongoose…. they kill snakes.
