Praised for his lyricism and raw storytelling, Dave East is one of the most promising rappers on the scene today. Born and raised in Harlem, he was inspired by older generation East Coast rappers ranging from Notorious B.I.G. to Styles P, Jadakiss, Cam’ron, and Big Pun.

In the summer of 2016, Daniel Muñoz decided to send a voice message of himself singing a few bars as a joke on a walkie talkie app with a group of friends. To his surprise, they loved it.
