Dave East has become synonymous with bringing New York rap back to the forefront and his unprecedented lyricism has gained him respect from legends like Styles P, and Nas.

After dropping a slew of mixtapes from 2010-2015, he now has hit millions of streams, 221k Twitter followers and 1.9 million Instagram followers at the time of recording. He has also become a heart throb with the ladies. Whatever it is, his look motivated Tyra Banks to ask him to model and got him a shout out from Nicki Minaj on her recent single “Barbie Dreamz” where she jokingly fantasizes about banging all of the most popular rappers in the game.
