Dave East is readying the release of his debut album, Survivor, which drops in November. In an interview with Revolt TV the Harlem Rapper opens up about how Nipsey Hussle’s untimely death effected him and how they were working on an album before his passing.

We were six songs in. We were planning a tour and all of that. F*** rap. I’m going to keep it 100. That was my n****. Anything we did together or anytime I had to be around that n****, I cherish it. It’s wack he went out like that. That n**** a king. Kings ain’t supposed to go out like that. But, that’s the world we’re living in.

Dave goes on to add, “I was f***** up. I didn’t want to record. I had music that I already had done. But, a lot of people don’t understand. They ask, ‘Why did you push Survival back so long?’ (Nipsey’s death) f***** me up, bro. I didn’t want to drop any new music.” You can read more on the conversation here.
