Dave East Taps Popcaan For ‘Unruly’
Dave East conveyed a stacked tracklist for the third installment in the Karma mixtape series.
Filling in as his first project since his official debut studio album, Survival, the rapper has returned to give fans precisely what they need from him with no filler. East, whose father is from Barbados, collaborates with Popcaan for one of the numerous features off of the project titled “Unruly.” Big horns usher East and Popcaan onto the track as the Harlem-based rapper flexes his specialized ability with dreary stories of the road.
“My father is from Barbados, from St. Michael’s. My dad’s dad was never a legal citizen of the United States,” East said to Apple Music about the song. “He snuck into the country through the Panama Canal and went right to Harlem, right to Morningside Avenue. My father’s father, my last name Brewster, that’s a powerful name in Barbados, but I never really speak on that. People that know know, but I never made that kind of music. And then me and Popcaan connected, and I really was a fan of him. And I said, ‘That’s my heritage. That’s where I come from, so I need to start integrating my hip-hop with that more.'”
