Dave East is having fun right now. After delivering the new single — and visual for — “Really Wit Me,” the Harlem star decided to drop off a new freestyle over Drake and Future’s latest collaborative hit “Life Is Good.” As expected, Dave East makes light work of the Ambezza, OZ and D. Hill production with effortless money and drug raps:

Pack and seal every bag, can’t smell s***, wrap it up in plastic/

Two .40’s, bought ‘em brand new, black Dior hoodie got me matching/

Go and get it, why you chillin’ n***a, waiting for your b***h to get her taxes/

Dirty little n***a, first time I backflipped, did it off a mattress/

Told Burna send some pound cake to me plus the number, I can track it/

Foreign tinted, if the windows up, you ain’t never seeing me in traffic.../”

Fans know that Dave East isn’t new to destroying other rapper’s beats. In promotion for past releases, he’d previously let loose over instrumentals for Lil Baby’s “Yes Indeed,” BlocBoy JB’s “Rover 2.0,” Jay-Z’s “Family Feud,” Lil Pump’s “Gucci Gang” and more as part of his ‘East Mix’ series.

Currently, Dave is getting the masses ready for his forthcoming project Karma 3: Thoughts Of A Menace, which comes after past installments released in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Karma 3 will also presumably act as his official follow-up to last year’s debut album Survival, which featured appearances from Nas, Gunna, Lil Baby, Mozzy, Teyana Taylor, DJ Premier, Fabolous, The-Dream, Rick Ross and more. Revealed via his social media, fans can also see the artwork for Karma 3, which pays tribute to fallen rappers Nipsey Hussle and Pop Smoke:
