OVERALL RATING (⭐⭐⭐)
Dave East is one of the realest dudes on this planet.
Dave East is looking to release Karma 3 really soon. On it, I expect to hear cold-ass bars and lots of storytelling. On “Menace,” his latest single, the Harlem rapper gifts us with a banger that is just as gritty as it is emotional.
“Menace” is powered by a beat that is full of serene vibes. Over it, Dave East raps effortlessly about being a dude from the hood that has seen just as many killings as Rolls Royces. He also talks about steering clear from snakes and bossing up every chance he gets. What I love most about the song is that it features a healthy balance between grungy and cocky lyrics.
East holds nothing back when he raps.
Quincy is the creator of Ratings Game Music. He loves writing about music, taking long walks on beaches, and spaghetti that fights him back.
