Dave East’s “It Was Written” Details The Journey That Led Him To Nas (Video)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

One of the true jewels of Dave East’s patient career is “It Was Written.” The opening track to 2016’s Top 40 Kairi Chanel album showed that Dave did not need to write a story to make convincing raps. The Harlem, New Yorker looks within and traces his journey from hustling, trying to be heard as an unsigned rapper, to ultimately linking with Nas and Mass Appeal Records. Now with Def Jam also in the fold, East is a deeply exciting figure in the Rap landscape.

“It Was Written” is expressed visually starting with the words on the page. Around the world that raised him, Dave tells his story into the lens. As his lyrics suggest, he hopes to be a different kind of rapper, as he is unhappy about people who are not true to their words. The ink is still drying on Dave’s rise, but songs like this are why veteran street MCs like Nas, Beanie Sigel and Method Man get down with him.
