Dave East continues to give top tier cuts from his peers the “East Mix” treatment. His latest is a dope freestyle over the instrumental for JAY-Z‘s “Dear Summer,” a Just Blaze-produced classic that originally appeared on Memphis Bleek‘s fourth studio album 534. This go ’round, listeners can hear East rapping about connecting with a certain Chicago great and reflecting on his childhood, among other things:

“Never had a convo with Kanye, still tryna find the Yeezys, all we knew was really hustle your life, or it was prolly easy, Sunday morning, same prayers I used to promise Jesus, I might repent after I sin, but shit I got them sneakers, momma tryna find a preacher, I was high wit’ Lisa, I’m 14, and at that time, I’m thinkin’ I’mma keep her, now I’m 21, and we ain’t spoke in five, doin’ time, got no letters, I was sleep wit’ open eyes…”

The accompanying clip for East‘s “Dear Summer (East Mix)” sees him reciting his bars while in the studio. This is in turn interspersed with shots of the Harlem star on vacation, on stage, and more.

Back in July, Dave East teamed up with Harry Fraud for his latest body of work HOFFA, a 14-track offering that saw additional features from G Herbo, Benny The Butcher, Jim Jones, French Montana, Curren$y, and more. Since then, the Harlem rhymer has remained busy by providing his brand of top tier verses for songs like AZ’s “Blow That S#%t,” Joey Fatts’ “Dead & Gone,” Vado’s “Respect The Jux (Remix),” and — most recently — Snoop Dogg’s Algorithm standout “Make Some Money.” Outside of the music, last month saw East revealing that he’d purchased his first store, paying homage to Nipsey Hussle in the process:

“Bought My First Store Today. I Told Nipsey He Laid The Blueprint For Real Ones Everywhere. Wish Shooter Could See This Shit.”
