NAV came out of a short ‘retirement’ last week, as his XO label dropped the EP Brown Boy. As promised soon after that project was released, the Toronto native returns with his new full-length LP, Bad Habits. Executive produced by The Weeknd, the 17-song album features appearances The Weeknd, Young Thug, Meek Mill, Lil’ Durk and Gunna.

Leading up to its release, some controversy popped up as NAV revealed a collaboration with Lil’ Uzi Vert was left off. The reason?

Earlier this year the rapper announced he’s “done with music,” with rumors circulating that the Philadelphia star is frustrated with his label, Generation Next, run by Drama and Cannon. In a statement on Thursday (Mar. 21), DJ Drama says “We’ve cleared 4 NAV records. And it’s not about the money because we turned down $100K.”
