Dave East Remixes The Classic “I Got 5 On It”

Another “EastMix” installment.

Dave East is a prime example of the old school meeting the new wave. His nod to Golden Age lyricism is transparent given his penchant for storytelling and respect for the greats; his affinity for the new generation is apparent thanks to collabs with artists like Lil Baby, Gunna, and Lil Durk. Manifesting this hybrid mentality is his “EastMix” series, where he spits over a variety of hit instrumentals — from certified classics to modern bangers. Recently, he veered towards the former by rapping over the Luniz’s iconic “I Got 5 On It.”
