through the rap game. “I was in the projects in my back room with the homies, finding beats on Youtube. We had a mic. The spit-guard was a durag or a sock. I had to tell the whole room ‘Be quiet, I’m about to record!’ I come from that.”
Of course the Harlem rapper has come a long way since then. After getting down with Mass Appeal Records and then landing a major label deal with Def Jam, Dave East has become one of the most respected new rappers representing NYC.
“The first year I came out here [to SXSW] I can remember walking down Sixth Street and nobody stopping me,” East recalls. “This year I ain’t even been able to walk. It’s just dope to see that growth as far as the fans go.”
In our new interview, taped shortly before his performance on Live at the BBQ 2017, Dave shares the details of his come-up, and reveals why he’s never nervous before he hits the stage. Having given up on “plan A”—earning a living via basketball—and doing a little time in jail, Dave feels he has no time to be nervous. Check out the up close and personal interview up top.
NFL owners voted 31-1 on Monday to approve the Raiders’ move from Oakland to Las Vegas, the league announced.
The stadium, expected to cost $1.9 billion, is planned for 2020. The Raiders are expected to stay in Oakland in the meantime. It’s the third NFL franchise to move in recent years. The Rams moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles for the 2016 season, and the former San Diego Chargers will move to Los Angeles for the 2017 season.
The city of Oakland presented a last-minute proposal on Friday for a $1.3 billion stadium in hopes of keeping the team. But NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was not impressed. He wrote back that the plan wasn’t “clear and specific” or “actionable in a reasonable timeframe.” Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf sent another letter Sunday to make the case.
“The NFL is more than a business,” the mayor wrote. “You have an obligation to recognize that professional football teams are the lifeblood, culture and identity of the places where they play.” The Raiders needed to get 24 votes from league owners, a three-quarters majority, to move. It originally looked like a long shot. The NFL is known for being conservative, especially on gambling, which is legal in Las Vegas. The league has refused to run Super Bowl ads from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. But with Oakland unable to secure taxpayer financing, relocation to Vegas has began to look more likely.
