Well, it’s like, the neighborhood I grew up in is very multicultural. It goes from Chinese to white to black to Jamaican, everything, right? Everybody uses that word freely. A Chinese guy is saying it to me, I’m saying it to a black guy, a black guy’s saying it to me. It’s all like that. I was making music for me and my friends in the beginning. So I didn’t really think anything of it. But then once I got to the global level and I started seeing a little bit of backlash, I totally cut it out. I respect it. In my neighborhood it’s cool, but out here it’s not cool. So I just play by the rules. [On Perfect Timing], you won’t hear me say it once.

: : Relationship With Uzi, Metro, Weeknd and Meek Mill

>>If you follow NAV and Uzi from the beginning then you obviously know how good friend they are. If not then don’t worry I’m here to help ya out. NAV said this in one of his interviews that, our relationship isn't corny, you know? It's very organic. We met very early in our career. And we don't even really talk to each other like musicians. We talk to each other like friends. We hang out. We don't talk about doing music. We don't even talk about the studio. If it happens, it happens. We'll turn the mic on and it just happens. But we don't book studio a together. Our relationship is very unique. It's different from everybody else that I have relationships with.

#Fun_Fact: The song “Wanted You ft. Lil Uzi Vert” was made in 20 minutes. NAV came out of hotel room and Uzi was waiting for him in the parking lot, they sat in the car and started having a chat and they literally made this song in no time. The whole song was written in a parking lot and the song is now Platinum Certified.

>>Metro and NAV had a face time and then they met in the studio where they decided to make a project together and that’s how “Perfect Timing” album came. NAV also said that the “Perfect Timing 2” is coming but they haven’t started to work on it.

>>The Weeknd is also a very good friend of NAV they (NAV, Uzi, Weeknd & whole XO crew) play basketball together. Weeknd was fully engaged with NAV’s album “Bad Habits”, he was literally spotting the mistakes like typos and color corrections, even me and cash didn’t even noticed all those things we just looked it and approved it, said NAV.

The song “Price On My Head ft. TheWeeknd” was actually made by 88Glam (Duo signed to XO records). The melody of the song was written by Derek Wise, Weeknd took that melody and put his own words. Later NAV comes for the last verse of the song.
#Fun_Facts: NAV performed first time on stage in O2 Arena in London in front of 20,000 people, it was The Weeknd's tour and NAV had to open it. There was a person from the audience who asked his friend who’s that guy? And NAV heard it and looked into his eyes, NAV was so nervous that he started looking at the sky for real.

>>Meek Mill was the guy who used to post NAV’s lines on Instagram and NAV was not even popping at that time. Even Meek Mill didn’t know that the NAV already produced a song with Drake.

#Fun_Fact: NAV in his interview with Complex. { The line from song TAP, "The first time I've seen a Maybach was with cuz," referring to Meek. That's a fact because when I and Bucks went to Atlanta for the first time, we were kind of just out there figuring it out and we hadn't got a car. He's good friends with Meek, so we went to Meek's house. He let us in his house and everything. We were chilling. We needed a car and he gave us his Maybach, and I've never been to a Maybach. He gave us the Maybach and he said, "We can't find the keys. The key's been lost for weeks in the car. But you could just press start and it'll work." That line is a fact. And "the first one to show me love" is really back when I was coming up before Cash (his manager) had even met me. }
