ABOUT DAVE EAST:
Praised for his lyricism and raw storytelling, and blessed with a loyal New York following, Dave East is one of the most promising rappers on the scene today. Born and raised in Harlem, he was inspired by older generation East Coast rappers ranging from Notorious B.I.G. to Styles P, Jadakiss, Cam’ron, and Big Pun. After a college basketball stint, Dave’s attention gravitated full time to music. Starting in 2010, he released an array of critically acclaimed mixtapes that earned him widespread recognition in the hip-hop community. His seventhmixtape, 2014’s Black Rose caught Nas by surprise, and resulted in Dave’s signing to Nas’ Mass Appeal imprint.  Subsequent mixtapes Hate Me Now (2015) and Kairi Chanel (2016, named for Dave’s daughter), boasted a collective guest list topped by Nas, Styles P, Pusha T, Jadakiss, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Cam’ron, Beanie Sigel, Rico Love, and The Game, to name just a few.  Kairi Chanel led off with the storytelling visual for “Keisha” followed by “Type Of Time”, with over 12 million combined YouTube views to date. After nabbing a spot in the notorious XXL Freshman Class of 2016, Dave arrived on the Def Jam roster late that year.  He was first heard on “Gold Digger” featuring A-Boogie, from Def Jam’s Direct Deposit Vol. 2 compilation (February 2017). 

Paranoia: A True Story marked Dave’s official Def Jam debut EP in August 2017 (with “Perfect” featuring Chris Brown).  The Paranoia 2 mixtape followed in January 2018.  It was supported by a 10-minute short film, “The Hated,” a gritty drama centering on two childhood friends who get caught up in the street hustle that eventually lands one of them in the Rikers Island lockup.  Dave’s profile was amped considerably on his 23-city cross-country “Paranoia 2 Tour” of the U.S. in January-February 2018.  He then jumped into the ring for Beloved( October 2018), a mixtape collabo with invincible Yonkers MC Styles P.  The project spun off a single, “We Got Everything,” whose video starring both MCs.  Dave segued into headlining his 23-city “Get It How I Live Tour” of the U.S. in November-December 2018.

III Points will bring the legendary Wu-Tang Clan to Miami’s Mana Wynwood December 9. Originally slated to play the Off Weekend Festival in Virginia Key—unfortunately cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances—the group will now join III Points’ Art Basel Concert Series. Tickets are available here.

The announcement follows last week’s news that iconic Icelandic artist Björk will kick off the series on December 5 with a DJ set, also at Mana Wynwood—a 100,000 square foot warehouse at the heart of Miami’s vibrant Wynwood Arts District. Last month, the space saw the massively successful, sold old fifth installment of III Points Music, Art & Technology Festival.

For the past five years, the III Points team has produced coveted Art Basel concerts including James Blake, Jamie xx, A$AP Rocky, fka Twigs, Nick Murphy andKendrick Lamar.

III Points Presents is an experience-based concert production company committed to curating vanguard talent, non-traditional venues and artist installations for unique and unreplicable events. Challenging the conventional experience of live music, III Points Presents has a roster of highly curated events ranging from intimate shows to the signature III Points Music, Art & Technology festival in October. This years’ sold out festival featured a lineup anchored in diversity, with headlining sets from Gorillaz, The xx, Nicolas Jaar, Richie Hawtin, Kaytranada and Bonobo.
