Spread Love The Canadian Way

A few nights ago, NAV went to his Instagram page to unexpectedly apologize to producers Don Cannon and DJ Drama. He publicly extended his hand to both musicians about overreacting last year.

“Shout-out to DJ Drama and Don Cannon. I definitely over reacted last year! Nothing but love 100. Album Coming Soon.” -NAV’s Instagram

Wait, There’s More

Last year, NAV publicly called out both Cannon and Drama. He pointed the finger at them for not clearing a verse by their protégé Lil Uzi Vert for his album.

“I had an open verse for the longest, and Uzi blessed us with one,” NAV said about a song titled “Habits” before sharing why it didn’t make the cut. “Unfortunately, DJ Drama and Don Cannon won’t clear his verse legally. I used to be a big fan of them since Gangsta Grillz mixtapes and thought they support new artists. I guess it’s all about the $$$$ for them now!” (The FADER)

Before You Go

Last Tuesday, the hip-hop heavyweight shared a major teaser pic. NAV shared a shot of himself in a recording studio and promised his album completion is around the corner.
