You can’t think of Minnesota rap without also thinking of the name Nate Millyunz.
Arguably one of the hardest working and driven artists in the Twin Cities, Nate has decided to call it quits, but not before he leaves us with one last music video for his song, “PSYCHOSIS”.
In the last few weeks, Nate has been hinting at a departure on his social media accounts. Today, he released this relatively disturbing music video along with a message to his fans.
“Before anyone takes offense to the nature of the video understand this is SYMBOLISM. And how I’ve felt lately towards this industry. This video symbolizes the entertainment industry voodoo. An industry I have been a part of the past 8 years. It will kill you in any way it can if you allow it to. I thought it would be appropriate to leave the same way I came in. By shocking your brainwaves.”
Nate Millynz was born in Tennessee and moved to Farmington, Minnesota at the age of six. He was often surrounded by musicians as a child, which created a passion for music in himself.
First inspired by American rock bands like The Eagles and Kansas, Nate then began listening to punk bands like Blink-182 during his teen years.
He experimented by being the frontman for punk, hardcore and metal bands in the area, but it wasn’t until his Junior year in high school when Nate discovered a new music taste—hip-hop.
His senior year, Nate bought recording equipment and began tracking his own songs, woodshedding hundreds of hours in the studio.
During his time pursuing a rap career, he also launched a clothing company, SWUEGO, which had created a buzz of its own within the suburbs of the twin cities.
Things got serious when Nate took his education of the music industry to the next level, graduating with a Media Arts degree in Entertainment Business from the Institute of Production and Recording (IPR).
Nate has performed shows all over, from L.A to the East Coast, sharing the stage with MGK, French Montana, Huey Mack, and many others.
Today, he puts the name Nate Millyunz to rest after an honorable effort attempting to break into the big leagues.
Nate says farewell to the music industry with an impressive catalog under his belt with over 400 songs with features from artists like Dizzy Wright and ModSun.
Has he retired from making music for good? Do you think we will see more from Nate in the future? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
