He met his labels co-founder; Elorm Kofi Ahumatah “Elormbeat” in 2010 and have been working till date, they went ahead to graduate from TTU’s class of Electrical Engineering in 2012. Soon after that time the labels name was changed from MOCEES to Beatbox or mostly a combination of both.
In 2013 Nate participated in Urbanroll.net & Drum Republik’s #Project500 which invited several Emcees from Ghana to sing to a beat produced by Sammie Blacc and a hook performed by Kay Dizzle titled Banku & Tilapia.
Due to Nate’s performance it started a rapport between him and Kay Dizzle which eventually led to the creation of the single “Kelewele” which features Kay Dizzle

Nate has collaborated with several talents like Worlasi, Trozo, Kay Dizzle Prior to the release of his sophomore album “Native: In a True Love Story (DEC, 2016)” and was noted for singles like; Be My Wife , Kelewele , Banku & Tilapia , Medo Wo & I’ll Do It..

Boss Chick is a blend of Trap & R&B, and was produced by Papa Dadzie A.K.A Alhaji Swit, the main concept behind Boss Chick is Nate being in love with a woman who calls all the shots, Nate imagines this woman as his boss.
Boss Chick after release gained a lot of buzz, this drew the attention of Colombian rapper “MC Dementor”. This has spawned an international remix of the song which is slated for a surprise release
