From boombox to arch-collaborator
Nav’s interest in music began when his mother gave him a boombox as a teenager and when his uncle, who was a popular Punjabi singer, took him to his studio to watch him record. Fascinated with the process, Nav began making his own mashups and beats. Nav’s music found its way into the Toronto hip-hop underground scene and he began producing professionally with Meek Hill. He also collaborated with Travis Scott on a song called "Beibs in the Trap", as well as with Playboy Carti and Offset, among a multitude of other artists. However, he found himself in the midst of controversy over his use of the "N" word on some of his recordings. He responded that in the areas he grew up in, the word was used regularly and not as an insult. However, sensitive to the offence it caused, he stopped using it in his music.

Adding energy to the room
His own songs are an interesting mix, sweetened by their minimalist approach. His voice is laid onto a wash of atmospheric, often wistful melodies, that vie with toned-down trap snare beat to create an emotional tension. Nav’s rap style is relaxed, more conversational than aggressive. He is comfortable on stage, considerate and appreciative of his audience, happy, with an air of sincerity. He is said to add energy to the room, creating an enjoyable atmosphere for everyone present. As an Indian rapper playing to audiences of mixed ethnicity, he has become an ambassador for diversity within the urban music genre.
