Dave East Says He Doesn’t Like The Song He Has With Lil Uzi Vert

Dec 28 2017

Dave East recently sat down with a Canadian magazine called Ssense in which he spoke about the song he has with Lil Uzi Vert titled “Don’t Try Me”.

Dave East didn’t diss Lil Uzi Vert during the interview, he just states that they don’t sound good together on a song or maybe that song in particular.

“They hot. They hot as shit,”

he said about Vert and other rappers with his style.

“But us making music together is a stretch. I just did a track with Uzi, but I’m not the biggest fan of the song, just because that ain’t me. It seems like at least some of the trouble has to do with the process itself … We all could get super high, get an Air BnB, listen to Metro Boomin or one of these beats that’s killing the club, but that don’t really take too much. For an artist like me that’s lyrical, that likes to write and do research on the dudes before me, I just really want to talk some shit and have you listen while the others are turning up.”

Dave also went on to say this regarding doing drugs,

“Future ain’t popping 40 pills a day and drinking all that,”

he explained.

“But he’s saying it — ‘I’m on my fifteenth molly’—and the people that are going to go try that shit are going to end up in a fucking coma somewhere … I feel like when I grew up music was aimed toward the hustlers, the dude that was selling the drug, not the user. Now it’s more the junkie. This is the clientele side. Before you wanted to be that dude who had it and was getting his money. Now it’s the fiends ruling it.”
