Harlem’s Dave East Featured In New Netflix Series

Page Six reports that Hot Harlem rapper Dave East is featured in a new Netflix series, “The Rapture,” on hip-hop wordsmiths including Nas, 2 Chainz, T.I., G-Eazy and others.

“I am new, freshly removed out of the projects — I’ve literally been living in Jersey for like the last two years,” the East Harlem native born David Brewster said of his success.

“I was around the homies for 25 years. I have been this rapper and ‘Dave East’ a lot shorter time. So the majority of my friends are regular people . . . I have a few industry homies, but the closest people to my heart are regular people. I have a daughter and family that I have to take care of. Kairi is 2 now, so for the next 16 years I have to make sure she got everything she got now and some.”

He recalls that growing up, “I was in the hood, but I had a father in the household so when those streetlights came on, I had to go home. My friends knew I had a strict dad. I have friends who are dead or locked up because they were out all night with no guidance.”

The Netflix series by media company Mass Appeal “gives you a chance to enter our personal life,” he said.
