EDITORS’ NOTES

Like a lot of his fellow Toronto MCs, NAV trades in ultramoody beatscapes and a songwriting style that’s as braggadocious as it is hyper-self-aware. While opener “Myself” rides a low-slung bassline with NAV admitting (under a heavy Auto-Tune sheen), "When I’m sober I just don’t like who I am,” the next song, “NAV,” is all about his newfound fast life and capitalizing on his success. It’s a thrilling debut mixtape full of complex, complicated personality, whether he’s examining his vices, castigating his enemies, boasting about women, or navigating The 6’s social landscape.
