Dave East – Paranoia: A True Story (stream)
Dave East is following us his stellar body of work, which was Kairi Chanel. East not only displayed his ability to rap, he showed us his versatility and how he could stay current while also embracing his roots into the industry. His EP Paranoia: A True Story is different, as far as foundation. Still with Mass Appeal, East is distributed through Def Jam, so things are moving different. That doesn’t mean that the New York native abandons the sound that got him here, but sonically, we can hear the growth. East even gave us a radio single with Chris Brown.
Featured on the album, East brings in the aforementioned Chris Brown, also Wiz Khalifa, French Montana, Nas and Young Jeezy. It’s our first time hearing Nas and East go in on the mic together since their 2015 track “Forbes List.
