Nav went all the way in on XXL's Freshman list yesterday.
"I wouldn’t show up for the freshman list" FUCK @XXL YOUR MAGAZINE IS TRASH🚮🚮SORRY WEBSITE 😂😂. 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 on Twitter and IG.
Nav was one of the favorites to make XXL's 2018 list. It's unclear if he's going off because he was told he wasn't being considered or because he genuinely thinks the list sucks.
Funk Flex agrees with the latter.
D@mmmmmmn. Even @funkflex going at @XXL like @beatsbynav? 😬 pic.twitter.com/iiHlIsqSeR— SOHH (@sohh) March 20, 2018
“XXL, don’t get tight, don’t get tight with me. Don’t get tight. Easy, easy," Flex said. "You know that list is trash. Hahahaha!”
As for Nav, he got more personal in his attacks, calling out XXL Editor in Chief Vanessa Satten and implying that she decides who gets on the list for reasons other than the quality of their music.
This is who decides who's on the @xxl Freshman List 😂😂😂 I refuse to wine and dine you and play you my new music before my fans. I will never show up for your list #NoCap 😈 pic.twitter.com/2viMlihIF0— Nav (@beatsbynav) March 19, 2018
