Rapper Dave East is making news, after he claims that Nicki wanted the rapper to smash, but he curved her instead.

The handsome NY rapper Dave East and Styles P appeared on radio station Hot97 last night - and both rappers had some serious bars. The rappers are in the midst of a promo run for their joint project Beloved. But beyond reliably dropping tracks that sound like aural Timberlands, the pair can be counted on to share knowledge about what does and doesn’t fly. Styles recently took offense to Drake’s assertion that there’s rules in rap battles. 

But during Dave East's freestyle, the rapper dropped a line that has now gone viral. The bar was about Nicki Minaj and it immediately caught the ear of most listeners.

Dave East rapped, "Nicki tried to holla but I'm just tryna make my album."

Afterwards he told the interviewer that everything in his rhymes were "facts."
