Dave East recently came through to the Liftoff show and sat down with Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk to discuss his latest album Survival!
Survival is Dave’s first major studio album and features some of the dopest names in hip hop. He shared some insight on the first track “They Wanna Kill You” featuring the legend DJ Premier. He explains the track was actually produced by Swizz Beatz and later sent to Premo to get scratched on! East also talked about working with Nas and how it is having a legend like that on his side is “priceless” and then proceeds to spit his favorite Nas verse!
The Harlem rapper discussed his mindset going into the album and how he wanted to make it for those who have never heard his music before. He also mentions how important it is that the project relates to everyone who listens to it! The Leakers even asked what it’s like to have a legend like Tyra Banks telling him to get into modeling! Although East is still waiting for her to reply to his DM he says he is thankful for all the doors it has now opened up for him in the modeling world.
