The Canadian rapper, Nav, got his chance to scan his body type into NBA 2K23. The NBA video game dropped on September 8, 2022. Nav isn't the first artist to scan in on the video game. Both J. Cole and Jack Harlow are basketball fans, and now, the rappers have taken their liking a step further by becoming playable characters in the NBA 2K23 video game.
Even though Nav got his big moment with the 2K23 scan, the rapper said some people aren't the biggest fan of the way he looks. "The way I look, bro that's gotta be it," Nav said when asked why people hate him. "They're just tight. Yo bro, If I was some light-skinned dude with tattoos, the whole look, NBA 2K player looking type of dude bro, and I saw me, getting more money and having more fun, and getting more females, and clout, and whatever I'd hate me too."
Nav Shows Off His Scan
Nav admits that when he was first making his way into the music industry a lot of people didn't know what he looked like, according to HiphopDx. "When Cash met me, I had like 4,000 followers and then he was like, 'Are you attached to anything on your history?' I was like, 'Nah,' then he just started deleting all the pictures, like archiving them or whatever. Then right after that, I blew up and no one knew what I looked like. Some people thought I was Black, they didn't know. That was when the hate started coming in."
Nav is coming to terms with fame and how to deal with it all. "Fame is something I want, it's a good problem to have," Nav said. "I'm still not there because when I walk out of the f******* Delilah in L.A. and TMZ will be standing out there with cameras and not even take a picture of me, I get sick." The Canadian rapper's first big claim to fame was when he was working behind the scenes in 2015. He was one of four songwriters on Drake's Grammy-nominated Meek Mill's diss track, "Back to Back."
