Earlier this month, Dave East shared a new two-song release entitled Survival Pacc. The Harlem rapper teamed up with Max B for "Wanna Be a G" and Gunna for "Everyday," and now he's given the latter a lavish video. The direct, hard-hitting tracks once again indicated that East is versatile, and the video embodies that by taking a glossier approach than some of his previous visuals.
Directed by Andrew Sandler, the video shows the two rappers at a poker game that quickly turns into a heist. It even ends with a shot of the getaway car in action.
It's a big time for Dave East, as he gears up to drop his highly anticipated Survival album on Def Jam/Mass Appeal Records later this year. He's yet to reveal a release date for the record just yet, but before it arrives he's got a very different project on the horizon.
East will appear as Method Man in Hulu's biographical mini-series, Wu-Tang: An American Saga, which tracks the early days of the iconic NYC group's rise. Method Man himself wanted East for the part. "When I seen Dave's name in the pot I was like, 'yeah he's just like me. He wants to be an actor, fuck it, give him a shot,'" he explained.
An American Saga premieres on Hulu on Sept. 4.
