Download HOFFA Album by Dave East & Harry Fraud
American rapper, songwriter and actor, David Lawrence Brewster Jr., better known by his stage name Dave East & an American record producer and composer managed by SAL&CO, Rory William Quigley, known professionally as Harry Fraud, made it official that their joint album HOFFA is on the way through video trailer.
The duo has dropped a new video trailer for the project today which reveals that HOFFA will be available July 30th. It was previously reported that it was due on July 21st. The album’s artwork is a portrait of the Harlem rapper inspired by union boss Jimmy Hoffa and painted by artist Mariella Angela.
Dave East has been ramping up the hype for his upcoming album HOFFA, and this past weekend he came through with a few intriguing developments. For one, the album will be entirely produced by Harry Fraud, who has been on a tear lacing projects like Benny The Butcher’s The Plugs I Met 2, Jim Jones’ The Fraud Department, and Curren$y’s The Outrunners.
In addition to boasting Fraud’s gifted mind behind the boards, Dave East’s HOFFA will be curated by hip-hop’s self-declared “Great Orchestrator” Westside Gunn. In fact, East recently connected with Gunn at the Buffalo Kids Gallery to unveil the album’s artwork, a painting of East’s likeness brought to life by Mariella Angela. In keeping with the album’s title, Angela confirms that she drew inspiration from a picture of the real Jimmy Hoffa, sharing a side-by-side on her IG page.
On his own page, East shared a recap of the big Buffalo Kids event, soundtracking it with his Benny collab “Stone Killer.” “Gunpowder inside my whiskey, blowing sour vibing to Missy,” he spits, over slow-burning and authoritative production. “Misdemeanor Elliott, these rap n***as is delicate / I’ll never switch, I been on some shit since Perry Ellis fits.”
Apart from the fact that Fraud will be producing the entire album, other details about the project are scarce at the moment. Last month, Westside Gunn had mentioned that he was curating the album. Watch the trailer for HOFFA below.
The project has been confirmed to be executive produced by Westside Gunn and Harry Fraud. While the East Harlem rep of North Manhattan is yet to share details on when we can expect the project, he’s been seen on social media in the studio all summer. Dave East is from Harlem, New York. East began his career in 2010, and gained attention in 2014 from his eighth mixtape, Black Rose.
