Navad the Gilateen
About Navad The Gilateen Born in Dallas, Texas, Navad the Gilateen has been in the rap music industry as an independent artist for a number of years and is still going strong! The Meaning of Navad is "Nomad" in the Hebrew language; which translated means 'to travel'. Navad believes that we are all travelers from this life to the next therefore we are all Navad's. Currently signed with the independent label ( Nite 2 Lite Entertainment,J.P.records) Navad is allowed the freedom to express himself through songs reflecting on past and present events (spiritual, social, and political) that affect our world. Navad has performed at such venues as the Atrium and Beulah College in Atlanta, Georgia and at The Arena in Dallas, Texas. He has had the honor of opening for Ice Cube, Jabazz, Lo-key, and various artists in the country. Navad has worked with well known producers such as CEP from Coma Productions, Steve Yeldel from Grass House Music, and also Grammy award winning producer Maduwku Chinwah from Vanguard Music Group. Navad the Gilateen through his metaphoric style of rhyme has been able to clearly paint a picture to his listeners, as he continues to draw them in with conscience and well thought out lyrics. A hit such as "Shinning Star" allows him to be able to tap into the emotional side of his listeners. Other songs such as "Money" show the diverse aggressive side of the rapper that you do not expect. Spiritually enlightened he has managed to slowly implement a sense of spirituality into his songs. "God is very important to me as well as Faith. Those are the motivations I stand on when I'm writing a song to enlighten my listeners. I just want everyone to understand that life is more than just Bling Bling. If you put God first all those things will be added to you anyway so why not serve the Master that created it all!" Navad.
