Imagine being an up-and-coming rapper and getting an endorsement from Eminem? That’s the reality for Nasaan, the son of Em’s late best friend Proof. Eminem posted a throwback picture of himself and Nasaan, encouraging fans to check out Nasaan’s music and vote for him in a “Fresh Empire” contest. Em posted a thoughtful caption, stating that “Proof is somewhere real proud too!”

Eminem even put a link to Nasaan’s music in his IG bio, making the announcement to each of his 12.5 million followers. Check out Nasaan’s video below, and if you’re feeling generous, give him a vote of your own. It’s what Em would want. Plus, dude is dope, and delivers a great performance over a refreshing live instrumental.
