When we heard from Dave East last week, he was busy tearing apart French Montana’s “Lockjaw” for Funk Flex’s freestyle series. Today, he returns to original production with “Percocets” — a song not so much about the drug as it is the evolution in his work ethic from a drug dealer to a rapper.
While this may not directly be a freestyle, he certainly brings the energy of one as he struggle to leave a second of the looping production from Rico Suave untouched as Dave is seemingly set out for vengeance on anyone who’s doubted his abilities, despite unanimous praise over the last couple months.
UPDATE: And another one. Dave East doubles up with “No Lights” — produced by Triple-A.
