NizzyNate Millyunz, born Nathan John Mills, represents a new generation of hip-hop music. He was born in Nashville, TN; however, spent much of his life growing up in the Twin-Cities area of Minnesota. Nate’s passion for music started when he was in his early teens when he played in a band that performed in venues across the metro area. He has since become a songwriter and has over 200 songs in his current portfolio. His songwriting illustrates his own style of music with classic hip-hop metaphors that are sure to attract the main-stream crowd.
Nate is currently attending college at Minneapolis’ Institute of Production and Recording (IPR) and will graduate in December 2012 with a Media Arts degree in Entertainment Business. He has an extremely versatile flow and seeks to change the hip-hop scene as a freelance innovator. Among his favorite hip-hop artists are the likes of Lil Wayne, Drake and Niki Minaj.
As the Music and Entertainment Business continues to transform, Nate has exposure to some of the best talent in the industry and understands that as technology changes, so does the next generation of entertainment professionals. Nate is the son of Randy Mills, a retired IT professional who formerly served in the United States Navy, and Tracy Mills, a healthcare executive. His brother, Travis Mills is his photographer and has been instrumental in helping Nate with mixing in pro-tools and songwriting. Two of his uncles, Dwayne Mills and David Mills, are also musicians along with his cousins Colin Mills (drummer) and Gage Mills (guitar player).
