(2016) and My Dear Melancholy, (2018).

Nav announced his North American Bad Habits Tour which kicks off May 21st in San Diego
and wraps on June 26th in Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale on April 4th at 10AM local time. He also released several rounds of exclusive merch which quickly sold out. Special album bundles are still available HERE.
Bad Habits showcases the life and times of a rapper who's had a rapid rise to fame, and everything that comes with that, along with finding himself amongst it all. There is a duality shown in the album that traverses from concern for himself and his mother, trying to be balanced but also tales of indulging in drugs, women, the rap game and the many temptations in the life of a young successful artist.
The Toronto producer-turned-rapper has been co-signed by some of the biggest artists in the game, from being signed to The Weeknd's XO Records to his well known friendship and collabs with Lil Uzi Vert, producing Drake's 2015 Grammy nominated diss track "Back To Back
", as well as producing and being featured on Travis
Scott's "Biebs In The Trap".
Nav has quietly ascended from the days of only a few hundred streams on SoundCloud to over 3 billion global streams and 350 million + views on YouTube. His 2017 album NAV has now been certified Gold and he has gone double Platinum with songs "Wanted You", "Some Way" and "Myself. Additionally, his songs "Champion
", "Call Me
", "Up" and "Minute" have all gone Platinum.
