Last month, Dave East shared ‘Karma 3’, the third edition of his ongoing mixtape series. In a four-star review of the new mixtape, NME‘s Will Lavin wrote: “A charged effort with dynamic results, ‘Karma 3’ may not be as flawless a spectacle as ‘Survival’, but it’s not all that far off. And it’s definitely the best entry in the ‘Karma’ series.

“East remains consistent, unapologetically flying the flag for New York hip-hop. His sharpened pen game flourishes over beds of captivating soul samples, airy synths and bass kicks so hard they’ll bottom out any cheap speaker.”







Earlier this year, East spoke to NME about his mentor Nas, fatherhood and what’s missing from modern New York rap.

“I’m a fan of what was going on in New York and I feel that shit is missing right now,” he said. “There’s nobody that’s really painting pictures about their own life. All the people I grew up on, that’s the type of music they made. Nas, Jay[-Z], Cam[‘ron], they all brought you into their world.”
