It is undeniable that Dave East has been on one heck of a winning streak this year, delivering a multitude of one-offs, singles, videos and remixes. The Spanish Harlem emcee’s EastMixes he has laid down this year have either been classics, or more on the ambiguous side.
His latest remix, “Anna Mae”, which is laid over Amerie’s “Why Don’t We Fall In Love”, references everything from Beyonce’s Lemonade project, to 2 Milly and the tragic shooting that unfolded at the recent T.I. concert. The brevity of the track, in a way, ensures that the listener is not quickly tired of the heartfelt, deeply personal raps within.
