Just last week, NAV and Wheezy joined forces to cook up and deliver their new Emergency Tsunami mixtape. To keep the momentum going, the duo present their new “Friends & Family” visual, equipped with real flames to match the heat exuding from the song itself. On the track, NAV gets his bars off over the Wheezy beat about how he’s well connected:
“I’m gettin’ bags, I’m right in the middle of quarantine, made ten million on the dot. Rick Owen pants, my right pocket full of them Xans, I know that I said I would stop. Man with the plan, I told ‘em, “Just follow my lead”, and I took my whole team to the top. Don’t check the tag and I don’t check the receipt, if I see it, I want it, I cop. Shoutout GB’s, I got some connеctions in Queens, I get my J’s before thеy drop.”
The new project boasts 14 tracks and includes features from current favorites Gunna, Young Thug, Lil Baby, Lil Keed, and SahBabii. Earlier this year, NAV also released his solo project Good Intentions. Meanwhile, Wheezy has been the mastermind behind the boards for some of the hottest songs in recent years, such as “Yes Indeed” with Lil Baby and Drake, “Going Bad” with Meek Mill and Drake, and “Bad Bad Bad” with Young Thug and Lil Baby.
In a recent interview, NAV spoke about the chemistry between him and Wheezy that made the project possible:
“I’ve known Wheezy since like 2015, 2016. I knew him even before I met Cash, I met him through one of my close friends. I always loved his beats and I didn’t even know he was producing for YSL or anything at the time. It’s easy to work with Wheezy because I originally was just a fan. I’m pretty picky when it comes to beats because I’m a producer too. So it’s hard for me just to rap on a beat, because if I hear any little nuances, I won’t like the beat. I picked all the beats for the album out of a batch of maybe 40 or 50.”
