Harlem rapper Dave East has been on the promo run lately due to the fact that he’s about to drop his debut album, Paranoia: A True Story tomorrow, August 18. He’s made multiple stops at different publications and then he finally made his way over to see DJ Clue where he blessed his listeners with a very dope freestyle.

Rapping over Playboi Carti’s “Magnolia” record, Dave East dropped some scathing bars that shows why he is one of the best new spitters coming out of New York.

“I know the feeling lose close friends, tragic shit keep happening / Money cant change nothing but my address / Plus I keep my mother daughter and I keep my dad fresh / Honestly I really need a nap, I need mad rest,” East raps.

Aside from the freestyle, the Harlem MC took a little time out to chop it up with DJ Clue to discuss his new album. Check out the full interview plus freestyle below.
