Dave East is out with the new project today called “Paranoia: A True Story”.
East, or David Brewster Junior, has blown up in popularity over the last few years given his rap talent and lyrical capabilities. In 2018, he signed with Def Jam records.
So what is Dave East net worth? Read on…
Dave East – whose real name is David Brewster Junior – is from Harlem, and he started writing music during high school. He like to write about his own life and experiences of living in Harlem.
He started actually making recordings in 2010, when he created a mix tape called Change of Plans. He released several mix tapes over the next few years, apparently selling drugs in order to support himself.
At some point in 2014, Nas became aware of Dave East’s music, and he wanted to meet East. East ended up signing with Nas’ record label. He produced multiple albums under Nas’ label, including one that featured such well-known names as Pusha T and Jadakiss.
But it wasn’t until last year that Dave East started gaining mainstream popularity. In 2018, he released a song that made it onto Billboard charts, and he was selected by XXL magazine to be featured.
At the end of the year, he signed with Def Jam Records.
This year, he continued to release music, as well as appear in TV and music videos. His latest release, Paranoia: A True Story is out now. East previously released one single from the album called Perfect.
Until Dave East signed with Def Jam, his net worth was relatively low. He had a popular YouTube channel, however his earnings from that were likely in the low tens of thousands. He also did shows, where he made more — but not a huge amount.
However, with his Def Jam deal, Dave East net worth is much higher. The value of that deal will depend on future record sales and bookings, but as of August 2018, we estimate Dave East net worth at $750,000 to $1 million.
