See original story below.
Dave East had to bail on a club appearance after the venue claimed he received death threats.
East was scheduled to host an after-party at a Boston night club after his show in the city on Friday night. Before the appearance, the rapper took to his Instagram Stories to inform his fans that he won't be able to make it to the venue due to safety concerns.
"The club owner to Icon in Boston said he got 2 anonymous phone calls that they was gone shoot me tonight lol," East said in a now-deleted post. "So they ain't let me in the club. I know one thing, if a nigga gone do that he ain't calling the club telling them. Sorry to whoever came out to see me and to the owner of Icon u a bozo."
Dave East is currently on the road promoting and performing his debut album, Survival. The project features Nas, Gunna, Lil Baby, and more. East decided to remove a Kodak Black verse from his project due to the comments Black made about East's late friend Nipsey Hussle.
"Me and Nip—like I said when you asked me—it was deeper than rap. So anybody—I don't care who it might have been—don't speak on that man after he's gone if it's not in a positive light. Don't speak on that man's woman, that man's kids. Don't bring that man up," East said during an interview with Big Boy. "I just couldn't have a song called 'The Marathon Continues' where I'm talking to my brother—and he's on it—and a few songs before it, you know... But like I said, I don't have no problems with homie. Free Kodak Black."
