Nav

Canadian-bred recording artist Nav is a full-blown renaissance man who started with a $100 microphone in his parents’ home and made his dreams come true on his own terms.

His eponymous debut mixtape NAV — was critically acclaimed — compiling all of his previous buzz tracks — leading to Nav be featured on stage with The Weeknd at the legendary O2 Arena as his first live performance ever.

His debut album, 2018’s Reckless was monumentally successful by music industry standards.

He celebrated his follow-up album, 2019’s Bad Habits directly at the top of the Billboard 200 debuting at #1. The project is an elevation to everything we’ve come to know from the musician, as it harnesses all of Nav’s power as a musician, coupled with undeniable hits.

His goal to show the world the breadth of his talent has paid off as seen with #1 charting, critical acclaim and sold out shows worldwide.

Fetty Wap

For the Trap&B artist named Fetty Wap known for sharing his love about his ride or die chick on his breakout hit “Trap Queen,” his hustle never stops. Willie Maxwell II hails from New Jersey, like Redman and Joe Budden, calling home to a city called Paterson. The rapper explains it was difficult growing up there, specifically pointing out that “everybody is trying to make it out.” As he adjusts to the attention after blowing up from “Trap Queen” in 2014, his mission in hip-hop isn’t to become more famous, but to use his fortunes to help his community rise above their hardships. “Trap Queen” rose to No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 13 on iTunes, 19 million YouTube plays and 22 million SoundCloud plays.
