Stream Dave East’s New Album ‘Kairi Chanel’

In case you were wondering, Dave East is having a fantastic week. The Harlem emcee announced his joint deal with Def Jam, Mass Appeal Records, and Triangle Offense Management. And today, he’s released his new album, Kairi Chanel. The album is dedicated to his six-month old daughter and was executive produced by Nas.

Dave East received features from The Game, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, and more. Starting with a track named after one of Nas’ albums, Dave East updates the New York hustler music to feel right at home in 2016. His storytelling is at its best throughout the album, as evidenced by the already released single “Keisha” and tracks like “Don’t Shoot.” Enter Dave East’s world with the stream below.

Check out pictures from his album release event from last night at Extra Butter, below. Young Jeezy showed love and Rob Markman of Genius moderated the Q&A. You can also get a quick HSTRY Lesson on Dave East in our video profile.
