East Harlem’s own, Dave East is easily becoming one the favorite fresh faces in hip-hop. It’s no secrete why he’s Nas’ apprentice. Nas told universal hood stories from an intellectual perspective. Dave East does the same thing, all while heavily embracing the trap. Which is a rarity in hip-hop. Dave East is real vivid about his history on the corners and serving fiends. He’s a conscious trap rapper. Check out “Wrote My Way Out” featuring Nas, Dave East, Aloe Blacc and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
This song comes from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton Mixtape which is set to drop in December.
