Dave East and Beanie Sigel drop some gritty introspection on "The Real Is Back."
Dave East is back with a new video off his Kairi Chanel project, featuring former State Property alumni Beanie Sigel. "The Real Is Back" finds Dave and Beans rolling deep in the Philly projects on an otherwise quiet night. Men, women, and children stand together in front of a building while the rappers trade bars, channeling Corey Hart with some sunglasses-at-night swagger. The clip is powerful in its simplicity, conveying major themes of urban unity and pride.
The video's location further connects the two rappers, having been shot in Beanie's hood of North Philadelphia, on Dave's aunt's block.
