Nathan Roy Provost (born August 21, 1998), also known as the creator of W/E - Whatever Entertainment, or Provost, or is an American musician, rapper, and YouTuber. He is one of the two founders of ERBParodies, along with JMB. He uploads a variety of different types of YouTube videos on his Watevr Ent channel, he also has NathanProvost2 for doing anything he wants, and ProvostMusic for music. He currently resides in Massachusetts.
Provost began his NatureNathan channel on October 27, 2008, but he didn't actually start uploading until April 9th, 2010 with a video called My Life, a video in which he made with Windows Movie Maker. Provost began uploading challenges made by various users, beginning his show W/E. He has progressed greatly over the years and got various YouTubers to host the show, such as diabolo453, 0007joeg, Ricky V and others. On July 27th, 2015, he started to diversify his content starting with a show called "HAE - Holidays Are Everyday" where he made many different types of videos to celebrate uncommon holidays. The beginning of 2018 he announced W/E 'Whatever' was no longer a show, but instead the entire brand for the channel which now stands for 'Whatever Entertainment'. He continues to diversify the brand by periodically uploading challenges, product reviews, gaming, unboxing videos and more - including the W/E Podcast.
Provost has been making music since 2011. He started out as TheLameRaps, a channel created on September 19, 2011, he started out with his song called "Introduce Objects" a spoof on DeStorm's "The Annoyed Objects" and released many songs on that channel. He released 3 albums on TheLameRaps and quit after his song "YOLO" on September 18, 2012. 3 months later, he launched a new music channel, TheOfficialBlingFace, Bling Face being the actual artist name. He started out with an album titled "All the Stories" containing 15 songs. "Jump Your Pants Off" released on December 12, 2012, was his first single and dropped a new single every couple of weeks until "What It's Like (feat. Biggins)" on June 10th, 2015. A third and final name change was made in 2016 when Nathan announced another new music channel called "ProvostMusic" and months later dropped his first single "Love Isn't Fair". He continues to periodically put his best work on there including hits like "Trapped On The Internet", "Willy Wonka", and the diss track that changed the rap battle community forever, "DEADBOI".
On November 25, 2012, Provost posted a parody of Epic Rap Battles of History, Nigahiga vs Ray William Johnson, the video got minor hate on it. Buckner had saw the video and commented on it from his music channel (not releasing details). Buckner went on his music channel's Facebook page and saw that Provost was the only person that had liked the page. Buckner sent Provost a friend request and they talked a bit, Buckner then said to Provost:
ah, well, if you ever need help with music, gimme a holla, I'll be happy to collabarate
They both friended each other on Skype and chatted there. Buckner then said "We should make some Epic Rap Battles of History parodies" Provost agreed. So they started ERBParodies on December 16, 2012 and released the first episode, Vault Boy vs Cole Phelps. They released the first two every other Sunday, but they had to switch the schedule to every other Wednesday because Provost stated that his Bling Face music released every Sunday, after Puff Puff vs Steve Smith, they switched the schedule to every Wednesday.
