Born in Lafayette and raised in Opelousas, LA, Nune earned his nickname from his family after his birth which happened right around 12 p.m. After releasing his hit song, “Mr. Propane,” fans latched onto it and often referred to Nune as Mr. Propane. This second alias symbolizes the inner pressure constantly building within. When exposed to the heat of the moment, Nune is set to explode in lyrical substance. A poetic introvert by nature, he started writing at a young age, jotting down thoughts and searching for meaning within himself. Growing up, his mother attempted to shelter her children from the influences of hip-hop, but regardless, Nune found himself drawn to the scene and culture. Artists like Tupac Shakur, Nas, and K-Rino resonated deeply with Nune.
In 2017, he began taking his music seriously by undertaking work on his first album, Intervention. At the time, trap and drill music was big, leaving Nune acutely aware of developing his own sound.

Highly conscious of this, Nune aspired to make unique songs that left a positive impact on the world. Drawing on concepts like love, faith, and life, his debut album offered audiences a breath of fresh air from the autotune and mumble rap prevalent in the genre. Contributing to the evolution of hip-hop, his work is an invaluable voice of reason amidst the static of mediocrity. Rereleased in 2020, Intervention, stands as an expression of Nune’s inner emotion and an escape to higher consciousness.
