Nav //. producer from Toronto
If you’re not a fan of Nav then I don’t think you should continue to read this blog post -yikes!
I’m going to be completely honest when I say I’d never really heard about this guy other than when he was on ‘beibs in the trap’.
For those that don’t know, Nav is signed to the Weeknd’s XO label [pretty obvious if you ask me] and he’s definitely right at home over there. Nav has the whole ‘xan, lean, coca, shooters, can’t feel my face’ talk down to a T! But on a serious note, the production is very slick from start to finish and the emo vibe is present on all tracks but in a haunting kind of way and I like that.
I think for a first release Nav’s done really well. My only criticism is that for me, the album felt to short but in reality it was 11 tracks deep. Anymore, and it might have seemed like it was dragging on.
I find it strange when people say this guy doesn’t have wordplay… I’m confused as this guy right here has wordplay and a flow so I don’t wanna hear of read about that nomore. Also, many reviewers have called his content repetitive. I think all rap fans need to acknowledge and keep in mind that rap music is new a new era and has a broader demographic now. So for some it will be repetitive, while for others, this is exactly what they’re doing so feel right at home listening to it. There are also people like me who just like to vibe and Nav’s music is a decent vibe.
Overall, I like this dude and will be keeping a lookout for his next project.
