Harlem-local Dave East hopes to resurrect a dying breed in the prolific "Monster." As if a co-sign and rumors of being signed by rap legend Nas isn't enough to signal the artists rise, DJ Radio hosts East's new mixtape Don't Sleep. Rapid-punch flow laced with a fountain of punchlines. A clarity of voice supported by plenty bass kicks, subdued snare hits, and a sample-driven melody. I never would go to class, now they pay me to rock the campus. Listen to "Monster" below.
