Dave East Songs

  • Hurd Flow
    Hurd Flow
    In this HNHH Premiere, Brooklyn's own Big B'z brings you "Hurd Flow" with help from Harlemite Dave East and Harlem rapper Kardi. The trio spits on beat that pulls together flute, trumpets, and 808s for a lush, summertime feel. Big B'z, who refers himself to as One-take B'z, is perhaps best known for linking up with Jim Jones and Rico Love on "Another Zoe" last summer. "Hurd Flow" will have you nodding your head as you ride down the boulevard with the windows down. If you're feeling this be sure to give the trio a follow over at Twitter: 
  • The Get Back
    The Get Back
    Dave East continues to put on for all the New York street rappers. His last two records, "Living Off Xperience" and "Once Again It's On" paid tribute to The LOX and Jay Z, respectively, and now, the Harlem emcee is back with "The Get Back." The beat is subtle, but the raps are anything but. Dave brings a non-stop gritty flow that makes his urban imagery come to life. Dave East is currently signed to Nas' Mass Appeal Records, and we can hear his mentor's influence at work as Dave comes into his own. Y'all think Dave East is next-up outta NYC?  
  • Once Again It's On (Freestyle)
    Once Again It's On (Freestyle)
    A few weeks back, loyal New Yorker Dave East gave tribute to some of his city's most respected veterans, The L.O.X., with a multi-part freestyle called "Living Off Xperience," and today, he's back to pay homage to another great Northeast combo. Turning his sights to The Roc, East tackles The Madd Rapper's beat for Beanie Sigel and Jay Z's "It's On," titling his "Once Again It's On."
  • Hell's Angels
    Hell's Angels
    The Heatmakerz are responsible for some of Dipset's most blazingly powerful work, and while they aren't as prolific as they once were, they're still producing fro rappers here and there. The latest work from the NY production team is for Al-Doe and Dave East, who also rep the big apple.
  • Living Off Xperience
    Living Off Xperience
    Coming up in New York, Dave East no doubt became a fan of The L.O.X. at a young age. Today, he pays tribute to Sheek Louch, Jadakiss and Styles P with a new "Eastmix" titled "Living Off Xperience." In it, he goes in over several classic instrumentals from the trio, letting the beat switch up every 45 seconds or so, keeping the track fresh in the process. East keeps it as rugged and raw as his forebears, packing enough references to Timbs, sour D, pit bulls and Air Maxes to keep his New York cred intact.  Let us know what you think.
  • No Coachella For Me
    No Coachella For Me
    Harlem's Dave East continues to impress with consistent new heat, but he wants us to know he's not just another festival-hopping rapper. Fuck Coachella, Dave East is stuck in the trap. While much of the hip-hop world was out in Indio, California performing in front of thousands of festively-dressed hipsters, Dave East was staying put right here in NYC. 
  • Scream
    Scream
    Compton rapper AD drops off another leak to get us hyped for his mixtape Blue: 89, which drops tomorrow. We've heard "I Go In", with Eric Bellinger, and "You Know What It Is", featuring Manolo Rose, Icewear Vezzo, and RJ, and his latest drop has some big-time features as well. On "Scream", AD enlists Inglewood's Skeme and Harlem's Dave East for his hardest banger yet. 
  • I Used To
    I Used To
    Both hailing from NYC, Dave East and R.F.C. member Al-Doe are two of the city's most underrated spitters, and they both bring their considerable talents to a new joint called "I Used To." The production, handled by Sonaro, features tinkling piano, metallic electric guitar and an unhurried beat. Both Dave and Al flip on the auto-tune switch for portions of this song, but don't let that fool you-- this is still hard-edged NY street rap to the core. After Al gives us a dope mid-song verse, Dave East rides the song out majestically. Let us know what you think of this one.
  • Last Words (Freestyle)
    Last Words (Freestyle)
    For his latest freestyle, Dave East chose to go in over a Nastradamus highlight. Over Esco's "Last Words," Dave gives the classic track a dope update (pun intended, as he raps quite a bit about dope fiends on the track). His bars tell the harrowing story of a crack addict who forsakes her daughter in favor of the pipe-- East's storytelling skills are on-point. Quotable Lyrics
  • Undefeated
    Undefeated
    DJ Kay Slay is back again with another posse cut. Last week, he dropped off the track “I Declare War” with Styles P, Sheek Louch, Vado, Raekwon, & Rell, and now today he’s doing it all over again, this time calling on Ransom, Jon Connor, and Dave East for “Undefeated”.
  • 6 Man
    6 Man
    We knew there had to be one record that rose to the surface as the the go-to freestyle track from Drake's new mixtape, and "6 God" may be the one. Then again, the first take on the instrumental relies on a quick loop, but chances are a remake will make the rounds soon. Dave East sticks to Drizzy's flow (which in itself was borrowed from Atlanta) for the first few bars, before getting more complex with it. 
  • 24 Hours (Remix)
    24 Hours (Remix)
    Thanks in part to an large influx of remixes from more established artists, TeeFlii's DJ Mustard-produced hit "24 Hours" is quickly gaining traction as one of the bigger Mustard tracks of the year. Its latest suitors are Dave East and DUBB, two bi-coastal bros who step up to remix the track for part of East's ongoing "Eastmix" series. 
  • Hot Nigga (Freestyle)
    Hot Nigga (Freestyle)
    The last time we heard something new from Harlem's Dave East, he was going in over Drake's "0 To 100," so it's only fitting that his follow up track is a freestyle over the other track that's competing for "most Summer freestyles" this year, Bobby Shmurda's "Hot Nigga."
  • Nothing New
    Nothing New
    Before the year's over, we should have a new tape from Sean Brown, Mascot 2. But before we're given any more details about that project, the MC has decided to share "Nothing New," a smooth new track that features Dave East.  Produced by Superville, "Nothing New" finds both rappers trading verses over a keyboard-led, rather low-key beat. East goes first, using a heavy-lidded flow that manages to cram in delicate internal rhymes without sounding hurried, and Brown closes the track out, using his charisma for a much more attention-grabbing verse.
  • Want Everything
    Want Everything
    Since releasing his last tape, Never Content, DUBB has seen some improved circumstances, signing with Game's Blood Money imprint, and now he's released a track that seems like a fitting response to his rising stock in the rap game. "Want Everything" has him sounding hungry as ever, but it also looks back on how far he's come. Dave East and Emilio Rojas join him for the HeatMakerz-produced track.
  • "0 To 100" (Freestyle)
    "0 To 100" (Freestyle)
    Harlem's Dave East is gearing up for the release of his mixtape Black Rose, but before he drops some new originals on us, he's shared his personal take on the hottest freestyle vehicle of the year (thus far): Drake's "0 To 100."  Starting off with some references to xany bars, crack and petty crime, East's rendition of the track is gritty, lyrical and hard-nosed. Though he mostly spits about drugs and women, he keeps things interesting with his storytelling ability and wide vocabulary.
  • Around This Way
    Around This Way
    AD will be dropping his Comptonfornia 2 mixtape next week, and today he's shared a new record from the project. This song finds the west coast rapper linking up with two emcees from different regions.Dave East puts on for New York, while Icewear Vezzo weighs in on the "No Fly Zone" in his stomping grounds of Detroit.
  • Gift Of God
    Gift Of God
    Harlem rapper Dave East just got his Twitter profile verified, and that's just as good a reason to drop a free track as any. "Gift Of God" is the song he chose to commemorate the occasion, and you can stream and download it below.
  • Dipset Forever 2
    Dipset Forever 2
    Maffew Ragazino gave us the original version of Dipset Forever at the top of the year on his Browsville's Jesus mixtape. While it started off as a solo cut, it seems like the triumphant beat and concept has inspired some of New York's brightest up-and-comers to hop on the remix.
  • I'm On
    I'm On
    Dave East has been dropping new material sporadically throughout 2014, kicking things off with "Welcome To NY", and just a few weeks back hitting us with his very own "Chiraq" freestyle.
