Rising star Dave recently sat in for Julie Adenuga on Apple Music’s Beats 1; while there, he brought on Fraser T Smith and Avelino and spoke on a variety of topics (from Drake’s influence to Stormzy’s success and more). Check it out here.
Santan Dave makes his way to Hot 97! Check out London’s rising star speak to Ebro In The Morning about Samuel Jackson’s recent comments on UK actors, Drake’s new album (as well as working with Drake) and much more.
Two of the UK’s biggest rising stars join forces. Check out the new visual from Dave and J Hus for ‘Samantha’, produced by Jae5 (Dave contributed on that end as well). You can also pick up the single via iTunes.
Given that Drake blessed rising star Dave with a remix of his track ‘Wanna Know’, it’s only right that the South Londoner deliver some bars over one of Drake’s tracks. Above lies Dave’s new visual for ‘Two Birds No Stones’, a flip of Drizzy’s KiD CuDi/Pusha T diss track.
In addition, we’ve include another new visual from Dave for the Six Paths track ’71’.
UPDATE: It sounds like Drake sent a shot or two in KiD CuDi’s direction on ‘Two Birds One Stone’. While the diss would certainly be understandable, it still seems a bit insensitive given KiD CuDi’s mental health revelation, but eh…
Today (24th October) happens to be Drake’s birthday — interesting enough, since he’s the one serving up gifts to his fans.
Lot of things happened via OVO Sound Radio: the latest episode saw Drake drop four new tracks: a few original releases — ‘Fake Love’ (produced by Vinylz and Frank Dukes), ‘Two Birds One Stone’ and the 21 Savage-assisted ‘Sneakin’ (produced by London On Da Track) — along with a remix of Dave’s ‘Wanna Know’ (taken from Dave’s Six Paths EP). Yes: Drake has yet again found himself collaborating with and showing love to a rising UK artist.
In addition, Drake revealed a new project titled More Life, which sounds like more of a compilation (or “playlist”, which was the term used) of new music from Drake, his artists and (presumably) friends and peers within the industry. That will be dropping sometime in December.
You can check out the new music below. UPDATE: The tracks — sans the Dave remix — are now available via iTunes/Apple Music.
We’re admittedly a bit late on this, but no matter: South London artist (Santan) Dave has been making some big waves with his music, visuals and freestyles…this has all led up to the release of his new EP Six Paths, which sees six tracks that contain forward-thinking lyricism and in-depth storytelling that gives us more insight into the young man’s life and ambitions. Listening to this guy is like listening to Nas back in the day, who was considered a prodigy in his own right.
Not to put much pressure on him, but Dave shows some serious promise as an emcee with long, illustrious career in front of him.
Check out Six Paths below (via Apple Music); we’ve also included recent freestyles and visuals as well.
