Dave East

Dave East is a rapper and actor who rose to fame in 2014 for his mixtape Black Rose. East's sound boasts a style heavily reminiscent of '90s New York hardcore rap, while also sounding contemporary enough to compete with modern hip-hop. He has been signed to Na' Mass Appeal label since the release of Black Rose and has dropped several Billboard-charting releases including the 2016 mixtape Kair Chanel and 2017's Paranoia: A True Story.
