Dave East is largely considered to be a leading light in a new generation of East Coast rappers. The New York native is able to collaborate with Chris Brown one minute and Styles P the next, as he balances being a favourite of old school hip-hop heads and mainstream music fans alike.
On this day in 2018, Dave East released Paranoia 2. The commercial mixtape features production from illmind, Cardiak and DJ Khalil.
On Paranoia 2, Tory Lanez, Pimp Pimp P, T.I, Lloyd Banks, Bino Rideaux and Marsha Ambrosius make guest appearances. The Def Jam release peaked at 61 on the US Billboard 200.
