Dave East Teams Up With Harry Fraud for ‘HOFFA’ Album

DAVE EAST HOFFA

Last month, Harlem-bred Dave East teamed up with Millyz for the 6-track project, Pablo & Blanco.

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.

Vince Staples Drops New Album ‘Dark Times’ miixtapechiick

After launching his Netflix series, The Vince Staples Show, earlier this year, Vince Staples announced he would be releasing his final album during his 10 years at Def Jam, titled Dark Times. Supported by the single “Shame On The Devil,” the project consists of 13 tracks with no features.

“Eleven years ago, a young, uncertain version of myself was given an opportunity with Def Jam Recordings,” he wrote in an Instagram caption. “I released my first project under their banner, Shyne Coldchain Vol 2, a year later. I was unsure of what to expect from the world of music but deeply aware of what I needed: a change in my surroundings and a clear understanding of self. Ten years and seven projects later, I’ve found that clarity. Now, I share with you my final Def Jam release, Dark Times.”
