We named Dave East as one of our 7 artists to watch for 2015 at the top of this year, and he’s definitely living up to the hype!
For his first major release of the year, the Harlem spitter teams up with DJ Drama for a Gangsta Grillz version of Hate Me Now. The 20-track project features some of New York‘s elite, from OGs like Jadakiss and Styles P to of course his mentor/CEO Nas, as well as up-and-comers like Tray Pizzy and Makarel. Tomorrow, a no-DJ version will be available for purchase on iTunes.
New York‘s rap scene has had small “comeback” waves over recent years, but very few are true to that feeling Jay and Nas and Biggie brought back in the 90s. Dave East definitely brings that on Hate Me Now, and it’s only a matter of time before he makes that “Forbes List” he’s dreaming of. Stream and download the project below!
