Amoeba Review

Dave East brings it hard on his tenth mixtape (and first album on Mass Appeal Records). Kairi Chanel feels like a return to the rough, gritty sound that defined the artists of New York rough past: Ghostface Killer, Nas, and Cam'ron. The beats are shamelessly old school with heavy bass, vintage drum machines, high-pitched synths, samples with gun shots, and even an element of Middle Eastern sounds. He flows like the great street storytellers who talk of wannabe Scarefaces and gangsters who sell drugs, kill, and deal with their newfound wealth. His rhymes are clean and feels like a poet giving a ghetto oratorio or soliloquy. "Type of Time" is reminiscent of the underground sound of the early naughts. Rife with violent imagery over a melancholy piano riff, there's a lonely mood to all the killing and street-earned arrogance that it teeters between straight-out condemnation and joy. "Can't Ignore," which features 2 Chainz, is almost deranged with their flagrant selfishness over all the stacks they got. It's almost an ironic statement over how much expensive stuff they have and what it represents, as 2016 has been a year that's disenfranchised the poor even further. But the much more relaxed "Keisha" is also a fiery-filled rant where he vents about a woman he loved and how it fell apart. Behind the machismo and hard attitude, there's a type of regret and sadness in the song as he obsesses over her. Ruthless and direct, Dave East is going to start sneaking on the radio more and more by doing an album like no one else does anymore.
