Dave East Names His Top Rap Songs Of All Time

By Daryl Nelson

Mass Appeal asked Dave East what his top five rap songs are, and he said the following:

"I'll start with bro, with Nas 'I Gave You Power,'" he began. "Beanie Sigel, 'Look At Me Now,' "Styles P, probably his whole 'A Gangster & A Gentleman' album. I can't even pick a song of that shit. And Eminem's 'Stan.'

The Harlem spitter then explained why he loved the classic Em song so much.

"'Stan,' that's always been top five to me," he said. "How vulnerable he was with a fan. You don't even have to go through that shit personally with fans or nothing like that, but you can understand someone being that in love with you or that into you. So 'Stan' is wicked."

And he talked a little more about Beanie's "Look At Me Now" too.

"That shit is like me growing up, just talking about coming from having nothing, for real," said Dave about the song.

When Dave's not ranking tracks, he's making them: Last month, he dropped his Karma 2 mixtape. 

What do you think about his song selections and what's yours?
