New York rapper Dave East has a knack for surrounding himself with greatness. This weekend, the Harlem native hooked up with some of the music biz’s biggest producers.
Last night, East jumped on Instagram to show off a pic of himself with hitmakers ranging from Just Blaze to Mannie Fresh.
In a recent interview, Dave talked about gearing up to release multiple hits with R&B star Chris Brown.
During a recent visit to Rap-Up HQ, the Harlem rapper revealed the big news. “We got another joint,” said East. “Me and Chris got like three records but we got a new joint with me, him, and Kap G that’s coming soon…It’s called ‘Bentley Truck.’” While fans wait on that collabo, they will be treated to the video for “Perfect,” which Brown co-directed. “The video shoot was dope,” said East.

Recently, Dave raised eyebrows after dishing on his plans to invade the Hollywood movie scene.
“Honestly, the acting is fun, man. It’s something I always seen myself doing. Like, I can [re-enact] mad movies,” Dave East tells XXL. “So the fact that that’s even like being offered to me now like I got scripts in my email. I’m reading different scripts. I auditioned for Star Wars. It’s crazy. I would’ve never in a million years been trying to think I would’ve been reciting like, Luke Skywalker lines. It’s crazy, man! But they on it, you know what I’m saying? So I got back in the gym. I just want to be the best Dave I could be.” (XXL Mag)
