“My latest speeches sound like they was released by David East, verses hit hard” J.Cole quipped on The Off Season’s ‘applying.pressure” (Dave would also appear in the tracks corresponding video), but between running his own imprint, From The Dirt, and his burgeoning acting career, where he is currently filming season two of Hulu’s Wu-Tang: An American Saga (in which he portrays Method Man), there are no off-days for the Def Jam/Mass Appeal artist.
In mid-June of this year, Dave East joined forces with Westside Gunn for a special art show to unveil the artwork for his forthcoming collaborative project with Harry Fraud entitled Hoffa. The original painting was curated by Westside Gunn and his Buffalo Kids collective and unveiled during a live in-store at the Walden Galleria in Buffalo, NY. Today, Dave East & Harry Fraud officially announced the release date for Hoffa, and released the project’s first single “Diamonds.”
Dave East and Harry Fraud’s collaborative union, Hoffa, will be released on 7-30-21 and is produced in its entirety by Harry Fraud; who further etches his name on any early “producer of the year” ballots, on the heels of his collaborative projects with Benny The Butcher (The Plugs I Met 2) and Jim Jones (The Fraud Department). Hoffa features guest appearances from G Herbo, Benny The Butcher, Jim Jones, Curren$y and French Montana among others.
