Nav’s forthcoming album Reckless now has a release date. The Toronto rapper and producer revealed that the album would arrive on May 18th during his Friday night show in Houston. “I’m dropping my album next week Friday,” he said. “The wait is over. I just thought I would share that with Houston ’cause y’all so close to my heart.”
Nav is currently on his “Freshman” tour. At a show last month, he announced both Reckless and Perfect Timing 2, the sequel to his collaborative project with Metro Boomin. He’s set to perform at Miami’s Rolling Loud festival tonight.
The rapper made headlines earlier this year when he criticized XXL’s Freshman list. “To my fellow artists. We shouldn’t look to a magazine for validation or to tell us if we “hot or not”, especially one that hasn’t been credible for 10 years @xxl. Make music for yourself and your fans. I would never show up for the Freshman List cuz I don’t need their approval,” he wrote. He shared a song called “Freshman List,” as well as naming his tour in protest.
Nav released his self-titled project in 2017. He followed it up with Perfect Timing a few months later. Find his full list of tour dates with 88Glam here.
