Dave East drops  "Something Else" featuring AR-AB today exclusively through XXL. Philadelphia meets New York with "Something Else" as East (Harlem) and AR-AB (Philly) trade bars about their city. With witty rhymes like "i'm not LeBron, I won't leave that Heat, I came with something else," the Harlem native spits bars about money and how he's different from the rest. Over booming horns and nice drums, the gritty street record has both boastful lyrics and extravagant style. East makes a Cam'ron reference, rapping that he's in the crib watch Killa Season. "Something Else," the Buda Da Future and Grandz-produced record, is a track hip-hop fans should be bumping.

Dave East teamed up with New York City beat stalwart Scram Jones for their collab project, Straight Outta Harlem, last December. East has been building a nice buzz for himself over the year and is ended 2014 strong with this mixtape. Over Scram’s gritty sound, East sounds right at home with is aggressive flow and hard bars.

The uptown rhymer explained to XXL how he signed with Mass Appeal.

"I’ve kind of known his brother Jungle just from me being in Queensbridge running around and because I have a lot of family out there," said East. "When I wasn’t in Harlem I would be in Queensbridge, so I met Jungle like that, just being in the Bridge. But he told me, “Yo, my brother feeling you,” and dudes around him were letting me know that as well, but I still couldn’t believe it. So one day I got a call from Nas’ manager and he told me he wanted to link up. I then met up with him and my manager and he told me that Nas was a fan of what I was doing and he was really interested in getting down with me so that shit went from there."
