Harlem rapper Dave East is getting ready to drop his first major label album. The highly anticipated project, Paranoia, has been in the works for quite some time. The album is going to drop in a few weeks but Dave decided he was going to give us a little taste today. He dropped his first single, Perfect, an ode to the ladies, especially the kind of girls he likes.
The track bangs with Dave East’s solid verses and Chris Brown’s smooth voice on the hook. This isn’t the first time Dave East dropped a banger, See, East has 10 mixtapes on his roster, the latest being Kairi Chanel. Even though they weren’t major label releases, they made quite the buzz when they dropped. Things started to really pop once he signed to Nas’ Mass Appeal label in 2014 and it’s been forward movements ever since. He’s had collaborations with some of the industry’s hottest rappers and even made an appearance on the critically acclaimed project, The Hamilton Mixtape. Dave East is definitely looking to be the next best thing out the gate and put New York City on the Hip Hop map. Press play to hear ‘Perfect’ above. The song is streaming on everything from TIDAL to iTunes to Spotify. Look for Paranoia to drop on August 18th.
