Dave East has returned with his first single of 2021, “Mercedes Talk.”
On the AraabMuzik-produced track, the Harlem rapper reminds fans that he keeps it humble despite how far he’s come. “I still don’t feel like I’m famous / I had to move up out the projects just to feel like I made it,” he raps. “That money start coming, then them feelings start changing / How grown men be complaining, I never understood / I feel like I’m the greatest / They call me East, only my moms can make me feel like I’m David.”
“Mercedes Talk” dropped alongside a WillC-directed video that captures East hanging out with friends outside of a corner store. The visual also features scenes of the rapper performing the song while flexing with his numerous Mercedes-Benz cars.
Last August, the 32-year-old rapper released the mixtape, Karma 3, which featured appearances A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Mary J Blige, Trey Songz and more. He released the tape’s deluxe edition in October, adding new collaborations with G Herbo and Jeezy.
