Ego Trip: Fans Not Feeling Dave East After His Rude Tweet

Posted by

Seattle, WA – Dave East found himself the target of Twitter’s wrath on Sunday (February 4) after firing off a rude response to one of his fans. East was scheduled to perform on Saturday night (February 3) in Seattle, Washington where one fan in particular was feeling anxious after hours of waiting for him to hit the stage.

“Show started at 7,” the fan wrote. “@DaveEast still ain’t out!!! #1010.”

East’s response? “So LEAVE,” he tweeted back.

Almost immediately, people started coming for East, pointing out he wasn’t “good enough” to be acting so dismissive of his fans.

The Harlem MC has been on a steady rise to notoriety since dropping 2014’s Black Rose. His most recent project, Paranoia 2, was delivered late last month and received a 3.9 rating from HipHopDX’s Aaron McKrell who said, “It’s the stellar storytelling that elevates East’s themes above standard thuggery and stamps P2 a memorable affair.”

The Def Jam Recordings signee, who was recently appointed the Global Ambassador for Luc Belaire, was just featured on DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9’s “Era” from the duo’s highly anticipated album, PRhyme 2.

But according to some of his fans, he needs to check himself before his ego gets the best of him.

Check out some of the reactions below.
