New York rapper Dave East might go down as a hip-hop superstar but he knows there can only be one true king of the Big Apple. The Harlem native has taken his love for Notorious B.I.G. the extra mile by tattooing him onto his body.

East went to his Snapchat page this week to show off fresh ink of Frank White and late music icon Bob Marley.

Recently, Dave disassociated himself from the “King of New York” hype.

Last weekend, Bronx rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie threw his name into the “King of New York” debate.
