Dave East is really not playing out here. The Harlem-bred rapper is keeping the momentum going, barely taking a breath between releases. It all started with his Paranoia EP in August, followed up by his Karma mixtape in November, and now, Paranoia 2, which was initially announced in September, has a release date locked in too.Taking to Instagram, Dave revealed what could be the cover art for Paranoia 2, alongside a release date (in emojis. Sidenote, in the future, we will talk only in emojis). The artwork he shared features himself and his daughter Kairi coated in a blue filter. When can you expect P2? January 16, 2018.
Not a bad way to start the new year. The release date also overlaps with his “Paranoia Tour,” which kicks off the same day (January 16th) at Irving Plaza in NYC, and runs through out the month, wrapping up in February with a stop in Seattle.
