Naved Shaikh was born on August 10, 1993 in bombay Sattar, India. He grew up in a tenement for the impoverished working class called Ram Bachan Chawl, located in the neighbourood of Kurla, Mumbai. He comes from a lower-middle-class family.
He was raised as a troubled child mostly by his mother as his father was employed overseas. After a run-in with the law as a juvenile he directed his energies in creative expression of his and others' life struggles.
He completed his T.Y.BSC from Guru Nanak Khalsa College, Matunga, where he met his rapper friend Neykhil Naik aka NCube.
Naezy debuted with a DIY music video "Aafat!" which he made using an iPad in 2014. Naezy's debut single, "Aafat!', credited as the genesis track of the gully rap scene, was released in 2014, followed by his collaboration with Divine on their breakout 2015 hit, "Mere Gully Mein". The song brought attention to the Mumbai rap scene and eventually lead to the breakthrough for both Divine and Naezy.
Following the song's release, a documentary titled Bombay 70 (the 70 stands for the area code of Kurla West) about his life was produced. Bombay 70 was directed by independent filmmaker Disha Rindani. The documentary was awarded as the best short film at MAMI in 2014.
