Nas Signee Dave East Goes All The Way Up With Fat Joe & Remy Ma (Audio)
In a show of strength that Terror Squad is alive and thriving, earlier this year, Fat Joe and Remy Ma announced they would be releasing a joint album. The announcement was quickly followed by “All The Way Up,” a monster single featuring Joe and Remy going to work on a red hot track produced by Edsclusive. Over the last year Nas signee, Dave East, has made a name for himself, both for his original music and dropping ferocious freestyles on current hot tracks, and the Remy and Joe scorcher is his latest victim.
Placing himself at the beginning of the track, East attacks it like he wants to own it. Throughout, he displays the kind of hunger reserved for an MC on the come up, even with nods toward Remy and Joe like “when Remy was Terror Squad’ing with Pun and ’em, we was in the back room rumbling, no one comin’ in,” and references to his Nas affiliation, such as “got with Esco off a mixtape, ain’t touched the budget.”
While East is not a part of Terror Squad, the aggression with which he flows is reminiscent of the same forcefulness displayed by Joe, Remy and Pun when they were trying to make it all the way up.
