Dave East Songs

  • KD
    Dave East has been grinding in the studio the last couple months in anticipation of his upcoming project Hate Me Now. "KD" is the third offering from the project, a menacing cut from start to finish as up and coming East details what life is like uptown. He actually used to record at Kevin Durant's studio back in his college days, so the title is an homage to the hooper as well as a warning to fuckbois -- he's a shooter! "Tre pound, that's a KD."
  • Get Ya Mind Right

    Dave East may be readying a new Gangsta Grillz mixtape-slash-album, but he's not letting that stop him put out freebies in between. At the end of last week, the Harlem native unleashed a collaboration with Queens connect, Nas, "Forbes List." He continues to ride the high from last week with a freestyle over Jeezy's "Get Ya Mind Right." How'd he do?

It definitely channels old school New York vibes, as Dave imagines the millions he'll be making (but with Nas no imagination is required).

    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.

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.

    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.
