Dave East Songs

  • 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
    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. 
  • Chi-Raq (Freestyle)
    Chi-Raq (Freestyle)
    Nicki Minaj delivered "Chi-Raq", her homage to Chicago drill music earlier in the month, and it's since earned its share of freestyles, both from Chi-town artists and otherwise. Dave East is the latest rapper to go in on the track, and while he follows Herb's signature flows quite faithfully, he's actually rooted in New York rather than Chicago (as his name may suggest).   The rapper's upcoming project, Black Rose will be out in May. Look out for some more material from the rapper before then. 
  • Talk
    We happened to just receive an EP titled BLKROSES yesterday (from NAKIM & Justin Rose), and the title seems to be a popular one, as Dave East's forthcoming project has a similar one, Black Rose.
  • A-1
    Dave East is an emerging rapper out of New York, known for his affiliation with Dipset. East comes out of Spanish Harlem, an area he paid tribute to in his recent track, "Welcome To NY (Freestyle)". East has already collaborated with the likes of Raven Sorvino, Los Rakas, Maffew Ragazino, Young Chris, Roscoe Dash, and Jime Jones, among others, and his profile continues to rise.
  • Welcome To NY (Freestyle)
    Welcome To NY (Freestyle)
    Dave East returns with the second of two freestyles this week, this time introducing listeners to New York in a new way. While there have been countless odes to various hoods in the big apple, East is taking the time to tell the story of Spanish Harlem, where he resides. Quotable lyrics: "I'm laughing you niggas still funny/ Get to blastin', couple niggas who would kill for me/ I'm still single as a dollar bill/ Bitches too fake to keep it real for me"
  • Real Life (Freestyle)
    Real Life (Freestyle)
    Dave East goes in over Lil Bibby's "Water" record on a new joint called "Real Life". This is the first of two freestyles he'll be dropping this week, so stay tuned for more from the rapper coming your way. Apparently Bibby is planning to grab features from Pusha T and Jadakiss for the official remix to the song. Does East best Bibby on the track? Quotable lyrics:
  • 2 Glock 9z
    2 Glock 9z
    New York up-and-comers Dave East and Maffew Ragazino join forces on the former's new track "2 Glock 9z". Dave delivers two hard-hitting verses, as well as a powerful hook, while Ragazino comes through with the closing verse.  Quotable lyrics: "America's most wanted/ My coast haunted/ I smoked hundreds/ I'm so blunted/ The most fronted/ This is the get back/ Sit back/ Let these chips stack"
