Dave East and The Game Go Bar for Bar on “Bad Boy on Death Row”
On the heels of the epic Bad Boy Reunion tour, Dave and Game are Styles and Jada, trading autobiographical bars and heatseeking punchlines over the soulful head-nodder courtesy of NYC's rising production team Buda Da Future and Grandz Muzik.
As per usual, Dave keeps it in El Barrio. "Chasing lettuce looking for the best salad/I'm from the East Side of Harlem, I never stress violence/Checks piling, black shades wave the techs smiling," the Hate Me Now MC spits. Game keeps it gangsta for Compton, while making sure to shout out his Harlem connects. "R.I.P to Yams when we in Harlem cooking collard greens/I start trippin' it's like Future when he out of lean," he raps.
East, who is Nas' protege, is no stranger to linking up with OG's. East and Game recently teamed up Cherp with on "Options." He's also hopped on tracks with Fabolous, Jadakiss, SP and Pusha T, among others.
It's been a busy 2016 for Dave, who has been on the road on for his Hate Me Now tour in support of his critically acclaimed mixtape from last year. The Mass Appeal signee shows no signs of slowing down, either. Even on tour Dave continues to flood the streets with new heat in the form of new singles, freestyles and verses on tracks like Trey Songz's "Everybody Say" and his own "Dead Man Walking," which he premiered on May 17.
