NEW YORK, NY (CelebrityAccess) – United Talent Agency (UTA) has announced the signing of Harlem-based MC and rapper Dave East.
Though most notably recognized for his 2014 mixtape Black Rose, it was East’s 2012 album Gemini that caught the attention of Nas who signed the rapper to his label, Mass Appeal Records, back in 2013.
Since then, East has joined the Def Jam roster and most recently had two projects debut at number one across all genres on the iTunes charts. His tracks “Paranoia: A True Story” and “Paranoia 2” hit the charts following the success of “Perfect,” East’s single with Chris Brown. Additionally, East’s record Wrote My Way Out with Lin Manuel Miranda and Nas went Gold last month. His latest collaboration titled, “NYCHA,” also features Nas and is part of the soundtrack for the new Netflix documentary, Rapture.
UTA will represent East worldwide.
