Dave East x Styles P – Beloved

Overnight one of hip hop’s living legends joined forces with a headliner to put out a project to change the climate of music. Dave East and Styles P debuted Beloved at midnight.

Highly anticipated is an understatement when it comes to Beloved. Dave East has been everything except quiet about the release of the joint effort with his favorite artist and fellow New Yorker Styles P. East’s heavy promotion pails in comparison to what the project deserves.

The 13 track effort opens with the meaning of the name David: beloved or friend. From the point forward Harlem and Queens couldn’t have been better represented musically. A true testament the very essence of hip hop Beloved excels lyrically. Storytelling and punchlines find have their well-deserved day in the sun in an era of colorful clothes and dancing rappers.

Styles P let’s the world known entrepreneurship hasn’t taken anything from from his artistry. The Lox member delivered lyrics likely to raise the bar in hip hop to heights unreachable by the majority of artists. Ironically enough, Styles P’s phenomenal performance took nothing away from that of his counterpart. In fact, it may be argued that Styles P set the bar and Dave East arose to the challenge. The 30 year old Harlem representative delivered Instagram caption worthy lyrics of his own matching Styles P line for line.

Undoubtedly, the project was far more than complete simply by being a product of Dave East and Styles P, but the two took things a step further including a handful of solid features. The Lox appear as a trio on the project’s final track “Load My Gun,” sounding a lot like hip hop in the 90s and elevating East’s platform even more.
