Is there anything about Nav that makes him stand out or makes him special? I personally see him as one of the most uncreative guys in the industry as he does nothing but speak like he’s half asleep to set him apart from other rappers. He rarely, rarely every changes up his extreme laid back delivery that has little to no emotion. It honestly just sounds like he is putting no effort into what he is saying. Even worse though are his vocals on his new album, “RECKLESS”. He uses so much misplaced and heavy auto tune on just about every single track. On “Glow Up,” it sounded like we might be getting a decent banger until he broke out into his disgusting and almost laughable singing. Not to mention, on this same song he said “I grabbed her ass so she called me a perv, opened her legs I had to insert.” Some of the bars on his recent project are simply cringe worthy.
On Nav’s last project, “Perfect Timing,” he at least had Metro’s production to carry him. The dark, hard hitting beats matched Nav’s laid back delivery to an extent. To be completely honest, a couple bangers actually came from this project. Nav’s flow was decent on tracks such as “Did You See Nav?” and other tracks had some catchy hooks like “Minute”. But Nav’s delivery still held this project back along with no originality. At the very least Perfect Timing matched Nav’s style and strengths more than Reckless.
What do you guys think of Nav? Does he deserve more credit than I give him? Why? Let me know below.
