Dave East

Harlem’s Dave East has made a name for himself in hip-hop, but before music, he was actually pretty nice on the basketball court.

The 28-year-old was once a Division I scholarship baller, who played alongside NBA stars like Kevin Durant and Michael Beasley. But, when basketball didn’t work out, he went hard with his music.

In an interview with SLAM, East talks about his history in basketball, and how Kevin Durant motivated him to chase his dreams in music.
