Rapper Dave East headlines Hip Hop show at Irving Plaza 1/12/19.

First of all I have to thank DoNYC (an amazing Events platform) for the free tickets , I love them they really do have the best listings for events in the City. As a Hip Hop fan I was super excited to win tickets to see Harlem Native Dave East. This is my first time at this venue, and I loved it. The line was wrapped around the block with hundreds of fans waiting in the cold to see him perform. The energy was electric, filled with hype. Hot 97 famed DJ Funk Flex had a great set of new and old school hits. East entered the stage carrying his Daughter who honestly stole the show several times, dancing all over the stage; he even passed her the mic for her time to shine. The New York native rose to fame from his basketball days and has made a name for himself as a real lyricist and story teller. Keeping true to real Hip Hop releasing eight mixtapes including features with: Nas, Pusha T, Mac Wilds, Jadakiss, Styles P and more. The whole crowd sang along to his hits, including one of my favorites “Phone Jumpin” from his “Paranoia: A True Story” album that released in August 2017. Im excited to see him grow as an artist, he’s definitely one to watch.
