Dave East Drops Video for “Party Monster” Remix
For at least the last few years, Harlem's own Dave East has been seen as a savior for the rap classicists of the world, and he showcased why that is with his remix of The Weeknd's Starboy cut, "Party Monster." Now he's come through with a visual for it.
The new video finds East posted up on his porch steps while smoking with his crew as he recounts his baddie-pursuing exploits through his lyrics. From there, we get shots of the New York City sidewalks and clips of East reclining in his bedroom while flipping through pictures of Karrueche Tran's Instagram account. It doesn't really get too much more eventful from that point, but less is more when you're trying to focus on East's impressive freestyle.
In case you didn't remember, Dave East absolutely blacks out on the lush, Ben Billions and Doc McKinney-produced instrumental, easily floating across the beat as he makes himself out to be Harlem's James Bond.
"Presidential shit like the 90s, ordered bottles of Cris'/I be quiet, my diamonds talkin' come say 'hi' to my wrist/I'm proud of this shit, bipolar won't say 'hi' to a chick/Rollin' sour on private jets, just for the pilot to hit," he raps on the song.
"Party Monster (East Mix)" is just the latest freestyle East's released to promote his forthcoming Paranoia mixtape. Before this one, he hopped on Future's "Mask Off." About a week after that, he took on Drake's "Free Smoke." What's next?
There's no telling, but either way, you can peep East's video for his "Party Monster" remix just below.
