It’s undeniable that Dave East has been on one heck of a winning streak this year, delivering a multitude of one-offs, singles, videos and remixes — all of which have been absolute fire.
The Spanish, Harlem emcee also has an obviously sharp ear; every instrumental he’s chosen as a backdrop for the many EastMixes he’s laid down this year have either been classics or more on the ambiguous side.
His latest remix, “Anna Mae” (over Amerie’s “Why Don’t We Fall In Love“) references everything from Beyonce’s Lemonade project to 2 Milly and the tragic shooting that unfolded at a T.I. concert this past week.
My only complaint? It’s way too short.
