Lil Uzi Vert Dave East

New York rapper Dave East, pictured right, is not happy with his recent collaboration with rumored ghey rapper Li'l Uzi Vert.

East, 29, is spouting off about his record label forcing him to record a collabo with the 23-year-old "Money Longer" rapper.

East recently discussed his frustration at melodic rappers like Uzi in an interview with Canadian magazine SSENSE.

“I just did a track with Uzi, but I'm not the biggest fan of the song, just because that ain’t me. We all could get super high, get an Air BnB, listen to Metro Boomin, or one of the beats that’s killing the club, but that don’t really take too much,” East said.

“For an artist like me that’s lyrical, that likes to write and do research on the dudes before me, I just really want to talk some sh-t and have you listen while others are turning up," he added.

Uzi and Atlanta rap artist Li'l Yachty were recently called out by rapper Kodak Black who described them as teh ghey in a freestyle rap.

“I don’t even listen to Uzi/These n*ggas d-ck in the booty/They confusing the community/I don’t even listen to Yachty/He don’t even be dropping no knowledge."

    So in other words he didnt know he would be this kewl to work with and now he finds himself attracted to him and cant handle it so he started this fake beef to keep others off whats really going on !!!!!

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Dave looks delicious with the tats also !!!!

  • yvette46

    Whatever happened to speaking proper English!! Now, it's cool to speak like a slave I don't get it..

  • Anunnaki

    #DEATHtotheWORDS"lil"young"thug"savage. ASAP

  • BlahBlahBlah
  • Keisha Hannah

    On his face that is attractive to you?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I don't like any of the artists listed in this write up.

  • GradyBaby

    He is cute hunty

  • Vonn

    He is, but they take away from his appeal. It's the ones on his face & neck that just scream...stay away.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Lol neither do I lol

  • Soda

    Sounds like he is a slave, saying he was forced to record with the dude. Anything for fame and fortune.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Yes he is....that's just a a bad pic

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    Asked her to call me when she gets out from work. Second day in a row when she hasn’t.

    This is how unwanted speculations begin. I’m going to just hit up the gym and take out my frustrations there.

  • Evillene

    Which one is who? They all look like they just made bail.

  • Dainese

    This song is trash.
    Terrible for Dave East.
    I actually like him.
    Should've told them NO thanks.

    Same with Cardi collab with Nicki.
    Label forced whether they admit it or not.

  • Dainese

    Dave East is a looker IMO
    Sandra always picks the worst photos. Lol

  • Dainese

    Why speculate? Just ask. This is how unnecessary drama starts.

    Tell you how you feel when she doesn't call. Allow her to explain why she didn't. Go from there.

    The mind is a crazy place and it is designed to make us thing negative thoughts when things don't go as we want, would like, or expect.

    Keep calm & openly communicate without blaming & see how it turns out. But if you sit and think about all the things that could be happening - it's just gonna be bad.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Is this a new relationship? It's hard for some (me in particular) to transition into gf mode. Specifically when you are used to coming and going as you wish. I have to put three times as much effort into doing normal gf type stuff (like calling when I leave work) because I'm not used to doing it. But, I agree with the person below, communication is key. Simply asking her why she isn't calling like you asked.

  • MookieFly

    I'm not a fan of Lil Uzi Squirt but these kids today will go nuts for some shit on a stick. Dave East is handsome but would benefit from talking less. Seems a little whiny

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    You’re right. Good look sis

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    I understand. Thanks

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Cant take away the tats now so accept him as he is or let me have em ;-]

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    Yes, it’s new. Sometimes I feel like I’m just being stingy. But, that’s just who I am.

  • pure_rachet

    when I don't call it's because I don't want to.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol. Go to the corner.

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    That’s fair. At this point, my mindset is that I shouldn’t set expectations on someone who is not my wife nor should I request someone to change in certain areas.

    It is what it is

  • Marlika

    Both of these mofos look slow.?????

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Uzi looks zesty and Dave looks slow in the pics above.

  • PlayerP

    DE is a handsome cat

  • Panther Charleston

    Please don't ever never say anything about racism or oppression w a near life-size portrait tattoo of Ben Franklin on your chest.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Dave was cute until I saw the face tattoo

  • TMW

    That’s amazing! My exact thoughts and words! Zesty and slow respectively.

  • Vonn

    LOL

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    All this sound alike. Why copy somebody else's flow. Whatever happened to changing the game, being different?

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Yes, he is. He has the typically bad boy baby daddy with 3+ baby momma and ain’t with none of them look.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    ^This. Expectations is a setup for disappointment. Sorry hun, but I would do you and not invest the emotional distress. When she does call, either don’t answer or answer and don’t question her. She owes you nothing.

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    You’re absolutely right. I appreciate you

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Likewise!

  • hottlanta

    The reason I don't call someone when I get home from work I feel they are trying to clock me everytime I get home from work and you said 2nd day in a row. Then I don't want to talk to you when I get home into my entire evening for an hour or two to try to determine what I do when I get off work. Sometimes when you get home you want me time. We will be talking and 3 or 4 hours has
    passed then my whole evening is gone. Before I spend my whole
    evening talking to you on the telephone we going out to dinner. I
    don't talk to a man everyday when I am dating him because when we get together as a couple I don't want to feel obligated to keep it up. Then I get used to calling you everyday then you don't pick up I am mad. People think because we have cellphones we are accessible 24/7 and I don't pick up everytime it rings which has pissed a lot of men off.

  • ALLMINE?

    yall hoes love dusty looking dudes lol. ??? yall queens lol

  • NicoleZee

    They both look like they belong in the city zoo. Crying damn shame. Their mothers should be embarrassed if thy are still living. Men don't look or act like gentlemen anymore. Very sad.

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    I respect that. Our preferences makes us unique

  • NicoleZee

    When someone shows you who they are, please believe them the very first time. If you were important to them or if they are really interested in you, they would call. I'm horrible at calling people, I don't have the time nor interest or attitude for it most days. When I'm not really into a guy, I just don't care, honestly. But I'm honest enough to tell him that, but men hate rejection and can't take no for an answer for some reason! Do as you please, but do not allow others to waste your time. Life is way too short!

  • NicoleZee

    I must be on the slow bus today! Why do people need to call each other all day and tell each other where they are or when they get home??? We are talking about adults right, not teenagers or children, so why do adults need to let others know their every move??? I know I'm different and weird, but my mom understands these things and I don't. Why do I need to tell a guy where I am going every time I leave home??? My ex used to drive me nuts with that shit. Like nigga, it's MY life, I never asked him where he goes! The hell??? When did I get convicted of a crime and sentenced to prison??? I guess that's why I suck at relationships. I can't deal with that controlling shit, but my mom says it's not control, just normal courtesy. I still don't get it.

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    Thanks Nicole. I respect that statement and advice

  • hottlanta

    She probably don't want to get into a pattern like that. Some women might like that but some don't. I ain't trying to talk a man everyday for hours and when I get with him on the weekend we have nothing to talk about. I don't like for a man to rush or smother me into a relationship because he is lonely and who hasn't gotten the time to REALLY know me. Sometimes it sounds fatheress when one says call me when you get home everyday. Then when you do call when they determine you been home several hours they ask where were you. That is the kiss of death. She probably thinks you are trying to see does she has someone else to take up all her time because we know toooooo many women who met men and give them allllll of their time and he starts acting shitty and leaves and then she can't find him. You may not be like that but the pattern has started because you counting the days she hasn't called you when she got off work. Now you going to the gym. You should have been there whether she called or not.

  • http://www.mylifeinlame.com/?m=1 Kimberly

    He starting to get on my nerves with his complaining and crying bout something all of the time. ?

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    I respect that.

  • hotntot95

    ?Aw boo..you seem sensitive, but in a good way. A grown woman with a busy life will run clean off if she feels some new person is being "clingy"...if u want to be in her life try getting involved in something she likes., try not to count and remind her how many times she didn't call, don't go soo fast or too often and remember it's the little things that mean the most.

  • hottlanta

    Some people like clingy but some people like to breath. I am nosey. How old are you?

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    It’s mirrored sis. This is not a one-sided approach. It’d definitely reciprocated...well, until this week. I’m not sweating it too much. We good for the most part.

    I’m 30

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    Thanks luv. Yes, I’m different. The little things do mean the most. I hate that I care about the details a lot. It’s a weakness that I need to strengthen. I’ll be back in the gym at the top of the year. My focus will be balanced. :)

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yeah...see I disagree with this. I think it is important to set expectations from the beginning. That's where relationships turn left. A marriage certificate isn't going to transform someone into something/someone they weren't beforehand and it isn't fair to accept certain behaviors during the dating//relationship stage and then suddenly start requiring something different.

    Personally, asking someone to call you when they get off work isn't that big a deal. And this is coming from someone that wouldn't ordinarily do this.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol. I'm laughing because I would have said a lot of this a few years ago.

    I think discernment is important. Some men are controlling and in fact are only asking to make sure you don't run into them while they are out doing dirt. BUT, there are men that are genuinely interested in your well being. My ex would call me every single time I left his house to make sure I made it home safe. Most often he would call me while I was on the road home. Relationships are about compromise and if you really don't want to do it, don't. I'm not the sending 20 texts a day with smiley faces type of girl. I let that be known up front. That's one thing I don't have time for and I'm not even going to TRY to accommodate.

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    I’m glad you understand where I’m coming from. It’s not to keep tabs - honestly.

    I’m just different.

  • hottlanta

    Awwwwww poor baby. Come to mama and find comfort by laying in my bosom. A real woman likes to make love to her man not her father. It is a difference between being concerned and being clingy.

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    Lol. Exactly. Far from clingy. I just Love in a different. I’m old school. Folks don’t know too much of it.

  • hottlanta

    Where you finally talk to her "ask her how was her day today". That carries a lot of weight. Then when you talk about you say you went to the gym etc, etc instead of saying I was waiting on you to call me back. Ain't nothing worst than someone to call you to keep you from bitching. It ain't real.

  • NicoleZee

    You're welcome. Just be yourself, but don't waste time. If you realize that you are more into someone than they are into you, move on and cut your losses. I've learned that feelings should be mutual when getting to know someone and when in an actual relationship. I just hate to see people wasting time when we don't get to be here that long in the first place.

  • Coy little wink

    But he discovered electricity ??

  • Hugga Bunch

    Just WHY tf for is a name like lol Uzi okay?
    Looking like a lil s*** stain. Ugh.

  • NicoleZee

    Good point of view. I hate how technology gives people an excuse to stay behind the phone and computer where relationships are concerned. I think relationships are better when there is more IN PERSON communication. I'm not good at being on the phone these days. I don't really like to text either, but when you can't see someone, the phone is a better way to keep in touch I guess, I don't even like video chatting, it's dumb! I wish more people would make more of an effort to SEE each other, not just phone and text all the time. I've met men who only want to text and they never call and they don't want to date either, so what is the point??? It's called dating for a reason; you can't date through the phone or computer! LOL!

  • Dahl

    The under-eye bags and bloated stomach make Uzi look dar older than 23. Can Philly trade him for someone else...??

  • hottlanta

    Lord please give us some decent looking men for 2018. I am sick of these men that look like I need a can of Raid or Lysol sprayed on them before they approach me. This is a bit much.

  • Scromes1212

    You out here complaining, I hope you don't have any flaws cause you talking like you Halle Berry

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Beautiful as Halle is she has flaws too we all do.

    Yall do realize that Dave East is gay too? lol

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    I’ll take note. Thanks a bunch.

    I’m just tired of starting over, being bothered by little tangible and intangible things.

    I understand why folks hearts turn cold

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    I won’t sweat the small things anymore.

    It just causes me to be frustrated. It is what it is

  • Jussjess25

    Noooooooo hes so fine!! I dont believe it ?

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    To me all rapper that has "Lil" in it is ghey

    Starting with Lil Wayne... And they all seems to have encounter Baby at some point. Nicki Minaj didn't lie about that we would have ghey rapper coming out.

    2018 will be about who is the "ghey-est". Meanwhile I am stuck with who is the "dopest" between Tupac & Biggie ?

  • anjanette b

    ??

  • Gone Too Far

    You’re lying

  • NicoleZee

    I definitely understand how you feel. Dating has become depressing for many. I stopped looking, love comes when we least expect it. It seems like most people have ulterior motives and there are so many people that prey on others and their vulnerabilities. My focus is on me and my son and improving our lives. If God has someone for me, then he will find me when the time is right. It's even harder trying to meet people when you become a parent, you have to be even more careful not to jeopardize the safety of your children. But I encourage you to not give up on love, don't close your heart off. No one knows what the future holds. Learn to be by yourself and enjoy each day that you are given, even if you have to enjoy it alone. I hope the New Year brings many blessings your way :).

  • WhatDidIDoNow

    Thanks my dear. We’ll see how this weekend goes. I love her. But, now that the honeymoon phases aka dopamine has resided I’m catching uncalled for attitudes. I had to address her tonight. Too many emotions right now. I hate being alone. I hope it gets better.

    :( & :)

  • QueenMe

    LOL?????????

  • NicoleZee

    .......try getting involved in something she likes.........

    Yesssssss! How come men don't know how to do that??? It is very hard trying to connect with an adventurous and energetic guy these days, I've heard the same from other women. Men get mad if you go out without them, but they hardly want to do anything. People need to date more and spend more time together outside of the bedroom and away from the damn phone!!!

  • RealATLPeach36

    Halle is mentally Fuc*ed and there’s nothing to repair that, except a pill a day. She’ll only take it as she pleases.

    I agree these lil ninjas look crazy retarded bat ? shit nuts so yes Raid Gun holy water is required. Or only do they look nuts they act super duper weird just odd

  • RealATLPeach36

    Nope and they wear blouses ?

    So basically he doesnt fully control his sound.. I wouldnt have said this

    Kodak... salute!

  • MistaO

    Pac, between these two. Overall crown has to go to Ice Cube! To this day fools scared to go at him...

  • hotntot95

    Men can be so lazy and selfish. No sensitivity at all towards the lady they're with, ..I definitely understand...

  • Jack Blakk

    None of them do! The one with the money controls the puppet.

  • CookieMobster

    Lil Uzi Vert look like his breath smells like a Lil Oozing Fart. Yuck!! Also, I will be glad when dreads go back out again. Especially when people don't keep them up. Eeeew!!!

  • unknown user

    Embarrassing. He should of just let the song die down, and be forgotten. Doesnt take too long these days

  • Simone

    He is for sure not gay! South Central LA! I know him...so get that outta your mind...lol

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    PAC all day. But there is no comparison; two talented artists. PAC brought the heat and knowledge. And sexy AF.

  • VoiceOfReasonAndLogic

    No, she's talking like these rappers are effeminate and unappealing.

    Between the dresses and the horrible teeth and dumb face tattoos, many rappers these days are outright gross.

    I'm not looking for perfect physical specimens, but an actual MAN isn't too much to ask.

  • Kayke

    Uzi is not rap. Rap need catagories like Rock has ... i.e alternative, punk. His dress is alternative and his music is filled with Rock cadences. I'd put him under alternative rap/hip-hop. Tryjng to fit everyone who rhymes under hip-hop and rap is the problem.

  • Dystaney Kimble

    Never heard it explained like that and I must say I like your take on it . Moving forward that does seems like more of a wise thing to do

  • TheyDontHearMeTho

    He’s a child molester. Dnt salute tht nigga ?????

  • TheyDontHearMeTho

    Agree

  • TheyDontHearMeTho

    U dnt know the industry...

  • Mark mcharm

    Name one male he slept with ? if not shut up

  • Mark mcharm

    yeah and you do ?

  • Mark mcharm

    Every black man is not gay do not listen to this person

  • Kayke

    It's the only answer.... It will also help with the yt rappers who should be placed in an alternative hip-hop category as well. These guys are far from core of hip-hop and thats fine....instead of saying hip-hop is dead just recognize the new branch on the tree.

  • TheyDontHearMeTho

    Sure do.

  • SweetTEE

    That actually makes a lot of sense to me honey.

  • hottlanta

    I am a bad bytch.

  • Kayke

    Don't doubt it.... But referring to yourself as such especially if coupled with he expected attitude of a "bad Bytch" could be why roaches are the ones approaching you.

  • hottlanta

    Oh wow no one never broke up with you. She would have been mental had she stayed with her mentally deranged sex addict husband Eric Benet. But she is the one with the problem and all the men are clean.

  • hottlanta

    I stand by what I said I'm a bad azz bitch when men come to me they know they gotta up their game or get the hell on. I am not responsible for men that are not shyt. I am responsible for me. I am not their mother. If you wanna burp every man you met and wanna be responsible for their actions be my guest.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    The dreads look bad... the face tattos look worse, IMO.
    I've never been a fan of facial tattoos, never will be.

  • hottlanta

    Halle is mental while serial 3 time marrier Steve Harvey is stable. So that is how it is played. Comparing Halle to whether nor not she has a man in her life is so played. She has moved on while other people can't let her life go.

  • CookieMobster

    Face tattoos = Mental illness. IMO!!

  • Kayke

    I don't know what you're talking about... Roaches approach you, hun so they obviously believe you're playing the same game they are. I'm attractive and roaches don't approach me....they compliment me but it's obvious to them, it's a waste to even try. Check your magnet....that's all I'm saying.

  • Yoni7

    What does this Dave East person sing? Uzi looks as sweet as spoiled cane sugar after a bad harvest.

  • Yoni7

    LOL!

  • hottlanta

    Wow you made the Guinness Book of World Records by being the only woman in the world who has never had a man to break up with her or never broke up with a man.A man approaching you as nothing to do with you being attractive. They just stacking women until they get to who they want to be with. Sometimes the woman that makes it to the top and he wants to be with is the unattractive woman. So don't flatter yourself. That is all I am saying. You have been played my dear. So stop trying to play us like you so special and different. We are not one of those men tying to get you in bed. Game over.

  • Kayke

    You are so random.....whose talking about breaking up? Or getting dumped?!
    I guess the roaches in my area realize I'm not stackable.
    But, Okay bad bytch, you got it.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    All these entertainers are le ghey. That's how alot of them got famous. Alot of them are just puppets. Funny how all these rappers and singers are all linked to someone in the industry. Once they get to a certain level of fame then boom none of them no longer date just a normal regular person. All these IG hoes are linked to the same people. Chyna, Amber and chicks like them get tossed all thru out the industry. See theres methods to this. They always say stuff like regular people dont understand the lifestyle of a entertainer. Nah there is chit you gotta do to keep that fame and only people who live the same lifestyle as you understand that sacrifice your freedom for fame mentality.

  • hottlanta

    I don't fool with roaches. I deal with those big azz water bugs. They come loaded with cash. Stop trying to dry internet front on me I know better. You been stacked so much you fall over like a stack of dominoes.
