It’s US rapper Nav’s first stay at the ROTW (Record of the Week) but this will be Lil Uzi’s fourth feature on it having had a successful two time run with his own singles and once on Migos’s ‘Bad and Boujee’.
Complex magazine dubbed him, ‘first brown boy to get it poppin’, describing him as ‘brown’ presumably due to his Indian descent and one striking thing about him is his close resemblance to DJ Khaled. Am I wrong?
Khaled actually co-produced this ROTW (Wanted You) alongside producers Ben Billions and Cash so while we enjoy bumping to yet ‘another one’ from this music maestro, here’s a bit more about Nav.
Born and raised in Canada (to two Indian parents), Nav would create music mash ups in high school, later deciding to create his own beats, which is where his road to fame started.
“I became, like, pretty much the coolest kid in high school because I had started making beats for local rappers,”
Fast forward to today, this fast rising rapper is creating waves with this ‘Wanted You’ single which features Trap Icon Lil Uzi Vert, a song where Nav raps about falling for the wrong kind of girl.
It takes over from Jacquees and Dej Loaf as ROTW this week, here’s a look at Wanted You.
Making money is almost like natural human instincts for those of us willing to do what it takes to get in the hustle because as much as you are making right now, if and when an opportunity presents itself to make much more, you will take it. Lets take a moment and thank God and technology because these days, you don’t have to work from 9-5 or wear an uptight suit day in day out to bring home the bacon because the rules have changed and the working flexibility that you have now is greater than how it used to be back then.
So what are these things you can do to bring in the money but not get trapped in a boring cycle? For starters, there is this thing called the internet and though it may have its fair share of crazy, when used wisely, it can bring you in so much money you wouldn’t know what to do with it. You can:
Start a YouTube channel- That’s right. As you watch peoples videos on youtube know that you are making them richer and richer with every click so why not establish your own creative youtube channel and start to rake in that cash and not just make others rich. Here is how much you an actually make from youtube: Highest paid youtubers
Freelance- This is a wide category where you can specialize in a particular skill set e.g. if you love taking pictures, you can take it a notch higher and do freelance photography or if you love to write, you can sign up for sites like elance.com and get paid to do what you love.
That didn’t quite impress you? Let’s keep on moving. Aside from milking the internet dry, we can take an example of some of the people who have risen up from nothing to one of the most respectable people in their particular skill sets and a good example of this is Lupita Nyong’o. College degrees are not the only thing that gets you paid because with some good talent, a reasonable plan and a strong team around you, you can bring in some solid cash. Even though some people made fun of Lupita’s very dark skin color when she first started to appear on our screens as an actor, Lupita rose above everything and went on to win one of the most coveted awards (an Oscar) , be named the most beautiful woman in the world by People magazine and now she has an estimated net worth of fifty million Kenya shillings. You go Lupita!
Talent pays and it pays big. If you are into sports, you can get some inspiration from the story of Victor Wanyama, The Kenyan footballer who has risen up from the ghetto to the highest paid Kenyan footballer and the first ever Kenyan footballer to play in the EPL. Infarct, he was so good Southampton paid a whooping 12 million pounds to buy him from Celtic. This is what it means to turn your hobby into cash.
Be creative with your money making ways and turn not only your hobbies but also your talent into some serious cash because let’s face it, white collar jobs are not the only jobs that pay.
