Dave East - Hate Me Now cover

After months of teasing the project with the #HMN hashtag, New York rapper Dave East has officially revealed a release date of October 2 for Hate Me Now.

The highly-anticipated mixtape is more of an unofficial album of sorts for the Mass Appeal signee, with production among the likes of Tunesquad, Sean C & LV, Don Cannon and more, while the features include everyone from Rico Love, Jadakiss, Styles P, Pusha T and of course the man himself, Nas.

East has been gaining a steady buzz on the New York hip-hop scene over the last few years due to his advanced wordplay and true NY sound (his looks don’t hurt with the ladies either), but this will be his first major project since signing to Nas’ Mass Appeal imprint in 2014. It will be interesting to see where he goes from here! Check out the full tracklist in the gallery.
