Ever since signing with Def Jam way back in September of 2016, fans have been patiently waiting for the first big studio release from Harlem rapper Dave East, and now that wait is over. At the stroke of midnight, Dave East released his highly anticipated EP Paranoia: A True Story after weeks of promotion.
Laced with 13 tracks in total, the follow up to last year’s Kairi Chanel mixtape, named after his baby daughter, features guest appearances from Jeezy, Wiz Khalifa, Chris Brown, French Montana, and Dave’s mentor, Nas, who is also reportedly executive producing the Def Jam/Mass Appeal release. Other producers looking to be credited on the EP are Harry Fraud, The Breed, Amadeus, & more. Of the 13 records, three of them are interludes and skits, including “Hated Skit,” “Jazzys Interlude,” and “Like Father Like Son Skit.”
Talking about what we can expect from Paranoia, Dave said… “Pain. Im a nigga who wear my heart on my sleeve. so every project I put out is what Im going through in life.” “I dont’ want to say Im Paranoid, but Im Paranoid. Like I don't know who the fuck around. There’s so many new faces coming at me every day so I don't know who really fuck with me.”
Having already heard the single “Perfect” with Chris Brown, fans can now stream the project in its entirety via Apple Music. Hit play & let us know what record you’re vibing to the most?
Look for Dave's upcoming studio debut album to also be on the way as well, with Drake rumored to be featured on it. Stay tuned, this is just the beginning for the Harlem spitter.
