DOWNLOAD Checc by Dave East – Ft. Offset
Depending how closely you follow New York native Dave East, you may have been waiting for this collaboration for a minute. The Harlem-bred MC first previewed it on his socials around the same time he dropped his EP, Paranoia: True Story. Obviously, the song didn’t land on that release– but here it is now, on Dave East’s new mixtape Karma, hosted by DJ Holiday. In classic mixtape style, this tape’s full of DJ Holiday shout-outs and ad-libs.
We already highlighted the necessary club banger, “Bentley Truck,” with Chris Brown and Kap G, but we couldn’t leave this dark collaboration with Offset alone either. Dave East puts his best Atlanta food forward, adopting some slight auto-tune feel for his verses. The song itself is a slithering, slinking affair, giving eerie trap vibes, perfect for Offset to wax on. Dave East does his thing too, giving us a luxury-filled hook (as to be expected with the title “Checc”).
