Fly Visual: Dave East Reflects On Transition Into The Spotlight On “Type Of Time”

Dave East is fresh off delivering his new project Kairi Chanel as well as announcing his new deal with Mass Appeal x Def Jam and he wastes no time delivering a visual for standout track “Type of Time.”

“Type of Time” is a rugged record where we find the Harlem emcee reflecting on making it out of the trenches, and his transition to being one of the hottest newcomers in the rap game.

I’m tearing Louis down / I’m tearing Fendi down / I’m hot, that’s a Fendi now / Jacket say Fendi now / Won’t pay for no verses / I smoke in the back of that Bentley now / I did not have a lot / We did not have a lot

Decked out in designer everything, East overlooks the city his sights set on taking over the Big Apple and beyond.

Watch “Type of Time” above. You can catch Dave East performing at the Highline Ballroom with special guests Tuesday Oct. 18.

Rick Ross Is “LIT” About Leaving Def Jam For Epic Records

Holding down the Def Jam mainframe for some time now, Rick Ross now makes yet another boss move and makes his way over to his new label home, Epic Records.

News broke recently, which left everyone a little confused but with eyebrows raised wondering if this perhaps was a good move. But looking at Epic’s recent track record, the conglomerate seems to be on the winning streak.

Ricky has been signed to Def Jam for the past ten years. During his stay, the talented MMG rapper dropped eight studio albums.

Ross signed his deal with Epic as a solo artist but we’re sure eventually the rest of his Maybach Music camp will join the flow. He also joins his fellow music cohort Diddy who also made a transition over to the established entertainment home.

Rick posted this pic on Instagram captioned “LIT!”.

On the low, we kinda want that hoodie! Send a few over Ross!

Epic also tweeted the news and welcomed Rozay with open arms.

Congrats to Rick, LA Reid and the entire Epic staff!
