“Everybody keep tellin’ me to make a club record…you ain’t trappin’ no more, stop makin’ drug records…you gotta daughter bout to come, stop makin’ thug records…I brought that money back fast, I had the plug flexin’…(It Was Written).”
Dave East has released his highly anticipated album Kairi Chanel, which is named after his baby girl. First off, we’ll like to send Dave East a huge congratulations on his recent deal with Def Jam – well deserving.
Kairi Chanel has features from 2 Chainz, Sevyn Streeter, Fabolous, Cam’ron, Beanie Sigel, Jazzy Amra & The Game. If you’re unfamiliar of who Dave East is, where he’s from & his background, you’ll definitely know just by listening to the first single, It Was Written. Dave also managed to elaborate more on his hometown & upbringings throughout Kairi Chanel.
The streets most definitely will be able to relate to Kairi Chanel entirely as Dave not only talks about his lifestyle but also the struggle that everyone can relate rather one lost a loved one to the streets or jail, or even doing whatever they may need to do in order to survive & provide for their family. Dave even has a song called Don’t Shoot which reflects on the harassment & unlawful actions by the Police.
