Dave East shows no signs of slowing down. New York rapper Dave East is in the midst of a stellar career moment. This year alone, East has dropped two mixtapes and a joint album with The LOX’s Styles P titled Beloved.
In his new single, “No Pork,” East illustrates a sharp lyricism that is reminiscent of an earlier era of rap —a sound that has gained East notoriety and praise. Complimented by a smooth sample and melody, “No Pork” sees East rhyming about his roots, accomplishments, and aspirations. The track also tackles more weighted subject matter as East discusses his choice to stop using Xanax, the concept of destiny, and death.
