Earlier today, Dave East announced a new mixtape, Hate Me Now. The project will follow up last year's Black Rose, and should be a make-or-break project for the Mass Appeal signee and Harlem native. It's looking strong off the bat, with the tracklist containing features from Nas, Pusha T, Jadakiss, Styles P, Mack Wilds, Rico Love and more.
Before the mixtape drops on October 2nd, Dave East comes through with a new leak, "Demons," a solo cut showcasing his lyrical ability, over some very NYC-sounding production.
Dave East is also prefacing Hate Me Now with a few words about how it follows up Black Rose: "Black Rose was really personal to me, it made people pay attention but it was a certain moment in my life. Hate Me Now is a celebration for what's to come, a celebration for where I aspire to go with my career & the things I've gone through to get here. It's definitely a transitional piece in my journey. Hate me now while you can."
Keep your eyes peeled for more leaks as we lead up to the mixtape.
Crashed up my first whip
Could say I took the dummy route
My man's took some pills to Virginia
He tryna run the South
Back to the city, it's gritty
Niggas is dumbing out
Cops giving out shots, no longer giving summons out
