Dave East has been putting in work for a minute, amassing quite the catalog through frequent mixtape and single drops. East seems poised to make a hell of an impression with Paranoia, and the rapper recently hooked us up with an early look at the album’s tracklist. While there are a few notable guest appearances from Young Jeezy, Nas (!!!), Wiz Khalifa, Chris Brown, and French Montana, East flies solo for the most part, which should surely please his die-hard fans.
Of the thirteen tracks, only “Perfect” has officially dropped, and earned a well deserved “VERY HOTTT” user rating on site. It sounds like East is going to be coming through with a versatile batch of themes, lacing some tracks for the ladies, for the streets, and presumably for himself. Plus, the rapper is keeping the iconic yet divisive trend of hip-hop skits alive.
What do ya’ll think? Are you looking forward to Dave East’s first official studio album, or do you feel like he’s better served as a mixtape rapper? East is clearly talented, and never fails to deliver some quality bars. It should be interesting to see how he holds it down over the course of a full length project, but has he really given us any reason to doubt him?
Stay tuned for Paranoia: A True Story, dropping Friday August 18th.
