Paranoia: A True Story - Dave East's Journey from Harlem to Hip-Hop Stardom



Harlem rapper Dave East is a true student of the hip hop that came out of the city that birthed him. He tells you himself on Paranoid 2's "What Made Me," an ode to (mostly) New York rappers including Jay-Z, Nas, N.O.R.E., DMX, The LOX, 50 Cent, Biggie, Mase. M.O.P., Big Pun, and Fabolous. You can often hear elements of those rappers coming through in East's own music, and he's gone on to collaborate with a handful of them since his breakthrough in 2015. He's the kind of guy that '90s hip hop heads could easily latch onto, and he's gotten increasingly good at that sort of sound. But he's not content to just be a throwback rapper. On Paranoia 2, he continues the approach he began on last year's Paranoia of finding a balance between carrying the torch for his heroes and not getting too stuck in the past. On "I Found Keisha," he proves himself to be a gripping storyteller who can leave you hanging on to every word. On songs like "Prosper," "Powder," and "I Can Not," he offers up fast-talking tough-guy rap. On "Thank You," he injects his boasts with a little humor, thanking his haters for getting him where he is today ("Know you doing something right when they hate you"). And he can get a little sentimental too, like on "Corey," a song addressed to a distant friend. He's clearly the kind of guy who cares about his bars the way his forebears did, but Paranoia 2 doesn't totally shy away from modern sounds. He gets a hook from rising R&B star Tory Lanez on "Woke Up" that sounds built for contemporary radio, and auto-tune lover Bino Rideaux lends a Future-soundalike hook to "Maintain." Even on those songs, East's verses are executed with precision and attention to detail. East is considering the two Paranoia projects as precursors to his proper debut album for Def Jam, an album which could really end up making some widespread impact if he continues to find ways to blend radio-ready hooks with real-deal bars.
