A few weeks ago the former XXL Freshman Dave East, unveiled the Album artwork and track list for his “Paranoia: A True Story“. This being the first project released under a major label since his last offering “Kairi Chanel“.
After much anticipation we now get the project in it’s entirety, the offering contains 13 new tunes from the East Harlem MC, with superstar features from Jeezy, Nas, Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa and French Montana.
Speaking with Billboard, East called his project an “appetizer” for his forthcoming studio album.
“There were a lot of stories that I didn’t really touch on, like super-detailed and specific moments that I haven’t really spoke about on records. That’s more than anything that and I still want to run around a little more,” he explained. ” There’s a lot of things that I still want to do before I say, ‘Alright. Here’s my album.’ I want [Paranoia] to be everywhere. I feel like right now I’m moving at a good pace, but they need Paranoia first. It’s not album time. Mentally, I’m there. Musically, I’m there, but just as far as where I’m right now, I don’t think it’s album time yet. A lot of people tell me it is, but I rather give them this, see what this do and come right back.”
