Dave East has been giving us gratuitous tracks since his mixtape release in September and the latest is “No Hook” featuring G Herbo and Don Q. The East Harlem-bred rapper comes with New York boom-pap and raw lyrics to satiate modern and classic rap fans alike, which is a big part of why we are fans. Since his mixtape Kairi Chanel, titled and named for his daughter, his Soundcloud has been active with gems like the caribbean-tinged “Vagabond” and “What a Year.” This release will excite rap enthusiasts seeing that the three rappers unleash a gutty cypher over a classic beat.
East has already caught the attention of rap royalty and has been signed to Nas’ label Mass Appeal Records and landed a spot on the 2016 XXL Freshman Class cover with classmates like Desiigner and Lil Uzi Vert. “No Hook” features 2016 XXL classmate G Herbo.
You can purchase the mixtape on iTunes. Listen to “No Hook” and more below.
