Channeling the Colombian drug lord, Pablo Esobar, the rapper continues to channel notable mobsters with his latest offering, “HOFFA,” where he emulates James “Jimmy” Riddle Hoffa, an American labor union leader and former general president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) union. Hoffa disappeared on July 30, 1972, and was declared dead on the same day, seven years later.
Hoffa was reportedly murdered by the mafia.
You may remember the name Jimmy Hoffa resurface during the promo of the 2019 Netflix film release of The Irishman, starring Robert Dinero, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci; and directed by Martin Scorcese.
With the help of Brooklyn producer Harry Fraud, East wanted to be able to show off his writing skills in a different way.
“The last few tapes I put out, I was really just freestyling on the record,” East tells Vice. “When I write, I’m a lot more detailed, a lot more intricate with the shit I’m talking about.”
“HOFFA” serves as a follow-up to Dave East’s 2020 solo project, Karma 3 (Deluxe). Over the course of 14-tracks, “HOFFA” features guest appearances from Crunch Calhoun, Jim Jones, Steven Young, G Herbo, Benny The Butcher, French Montana, Curren$y, and the late Kiing Shooter.
HOFFA drops on the anniversary of Jimmy Hoffa’s death.
