NF Releases New Single Titled ‘Paid My Dues’
Following the release of his latest album The Search in July which topped the Billboard 200 chart ahead of Chance The Rapper, NF returns today with a surprise new song titled ‘Paid My Dues’.
On the new track, the Michigan rapper seems to be talking about his underrated status in the game where he is beginning to demand respect from those that matter.
“They wanna see me take an L? Yup, see what I mean? / How many records I gotta give you to get with the program? / Taken for granted, I’m ’bout to give you the whole plan,” he raps.
The track comes along with a usual dark video which you can watch below. NF will embark on the second leg of The Search Tour in Spring 2020, beginning with sold European dates and then returning to North America for an additional 28 shows.
I read your article, it kinda hurt me
I don’t know who hired you
Or what your friends say in your circle
But the fact that you released it
Tells me two things are for certain
They get paid for trashing people
I get paid ’cause I stay working
Dropped ‘The Search’ and
They emerge up outta nowhere
To the surface, just to peep behind the curtain
Throwing salt at all my burdens
I’m aware I shouldn’t give this my attention
Life’s a journey, I should just stay on my path
And learn to laugh, you think they heard me?
Ears are burning, put me out
Quiet, quiet, look around
Why don’t they find someone way more
Interesting to write about?
Us, we’re kinda boring, aren’t we?
All we do is whine and pout
It’s confusing, so amusing
How I argue with myself
