Dave East might have one studio album to his name but it was his mixtape work that got him known and the attention of Nas. His recent output has been a reflection of his mixtape run. Each track and freestyle has been a promising look into what he has up next.
On Tuesday, the rapper returned with a brand new drop filled with the swagger of Harlem. The production on his new track, “They Gotta Hate Us” is reminiscent of the electrifying sounds Dipset brought to the table in the early 2000s. East is effortlessly weaving through the production as he reflects on his days hustling and his newfound status as both a successful rapper and actor.
