Almost a year since inking a joint venture between Mass Appeal and Def Jam, Dave East
has announced an August 18 release date for his major label debut, Paranoia: A True Story.
He also shared the cover art via Instagram.
Though we’re still waiting on the tracklist, producer credits and guest features, East
did recently drop the Chris Brown-assisted single “Perfect.” East’s long-time mentor Nas
will serve as executive producer for the album.
Speaking with DX in July, East sprinkled a few tidbits on what to expect from the album.
“It’s dropping in July. I can’t give you the exact time,” he said. “It’s like 10 joints —
all original, of course. It’s my first release with Def Jam.”
During the interview, he mentioned Jeezy making the cut.
