A rapper from New York City, Dave East has been producing music since his early twenties. Growing up in Manhattan, he has been writing rhymes for as long as he can remember. Finally, in 2010, he made his official debut with the mixtape titled, Change of Plans which garnered him little recognition. Since then, he has released several additional tapes including Insomnia, American Greed, No Regrets, Don’t Sleep, Black Rose, and Gemini. Having said that, it wasn’t until the mid-2010’s that he started to create a buzz in the rap scene.
Making his breakthrough, the emcee came out with his next mixtape, Kairi Chanel in 2016. Named after his daughter, the project included several guest appearances from Fabulous, 2 Chains, The Game, Cam’ron, Seven Streeter, and Beanie Sigel. A significant improvement over his previous efforts, it peaked at number 38 on the Billboard Top 200 and at number 3 on the Top R&B Albums. Included in the track list were songs, The Real is Back, Don’t Shoot, Don Pablo, Bad Boy on Death Row, Eyes on Me, Can’t Ignore, and From the Heart. That same year, he also teamed up with Kur for a collaborative EP dubbed, Born Broke Die Rich.
Most recently, the rapper released his debut EP, Paranoia: A True Story on August 18, 2017. A prelude towards his forthcoming album, it spawned several hits including Phone Jumpin (Feat. Wiz Khalifa), Maneuver (Feat. French Montana), My Dirty Little Secret, Have You Ever, Wanna Be Me, and Found a Way. A solid release, the album reached as high as number 9 on the US Billboard Top 200 and number 5 on the Top R&B Albums chart. Supported by the single, Perfect (Feat. Chris Brown), it only boosted his presence further in the rap scene.
Speaking of collaborations, he’s worked with several other artists over the past few years. For instance, he has teamed up with Lumidee, Bitta Blood, Greatness Jones, Juelz Santana, Faro the Kid, Snoop Dogg, and Trae the Truth. Some of the said tracks include, I’m On 3.0, Realest Ones, Roll Up, Off the Porch, Be Good, A Pusher’s Dream, and Grind for That. On top of that, East has also guest appeared in the works of Meek Mill, BJ The Chicago Kid, Future, Has, Berner, and Seven Streeter, among others.
As far as recent ventures go, he made his acting debut in the fourth season of the BET drama series, Being Mary Jane, which premiered in January 2017. In addition to that, he also appeared in the shows, Celebrity Basketball Game, and Wild ’N Out.
