Checc | Dave East x Offset
Man, these NY rappers on some "the North got something to say," with all these releases this past week. As discussed in the last podcast episode (listen here), Fabolous and Jadakiss released their collaborative mixtape and the same week Dave East drops a new mixtape titled Karma. I forgot about the release until today so I haven't had a chance to go through the entire project yet, but this particular track was one of my first plays on shuffle mode and I'm feeling it. I've said before on here that his album, Paranoia: A True Story, was pretty dope and caught me by surprise since I hadn't really heard any of his music before that. The production on this is dope and is a good example of what you can expect out a lot of his records. I appreciate his ability to pick tracks that aren't the same old, up North sound that can be kind of boring to me. Offset provides a dope verse and it's cool to hear him on a more slowed down sound. Definitely adding to my to-do list this week to check the entire tape out since I suspect I'll find a few faves.
