Dave East ft Wiz Khalifa – Phone Jumpin:With drops from Dave East, A$AP Ferg, Kodak Black, Ace Hood, plus new singles from Denzel Curry & Gucci Mane, it’s been, well, glorious.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to Dave East, who left a hell of an impression with his “EP” (thirteen songs is an EP now, apparently) Paranoia: A True Story. Narrowing it down to a single song to highlight was pretty difficult, but from the first five seconds of “Phone Jumpin’” the urgency and uptempo blow was simply too fire to deny.
Over a hard hitting 808s and an ominous, cinematic string sample both Dave East and Wiz Khalifa trade verses with finesse. While Wiz Khalifa brings a stoner’s cool to the proceedings, dropping moments of strange and unique melodies, Dave’s robotic, animalistic delivery truly marks this one down as a certified banger.
