Tune in and turn up

Dave East is back in action. The Philadelphia rapper has unveiled a new track titled “Don’t Try Me,” one that finds him linking up with another high-profile member of his hometown: Lil Uzi Vert. Listen to it below.

Over a sparse, intoxicating sitar-based sample, both MCs turn in verses that find them on top form. This is Dave East’s first release since his EP Paranoia: A True Story which dropped over the summer. Meanwhile, Uzi recently linked up on a collaborative track with Nav. Listen to that here.
