Dave East continues to make his presence known in the music industry. The East Harlem native is a lyrical favorite when it comes to his music. He is coming up on his first Def Jam release later this year. It’s only right he talk about his journey. He has a solid work ethic that should be shared and celebrated as he gets ready to drop this next project. Dave recently sat down for the “I AM DEF JAM” video series to talk about his focus, energy, and successes in life.
Dave wasn’t always in the music industry. Before he stepped on the scene he was a baller making waves playing Division I basketball. His perseverance, work ethic, earned him several scholarships but that wasn’t where his heart was. He took that same drive and applied it to a music career and BAM…Here he is. Press play on the clip above to hear his story about how religion, focus, and energy are a driving force in securing success on his life.
