Dae Dae’s 2016 has been pretty exceptional. If you haven’t heard his song "Wat U Mean (Aye Aye Aye)" every time you’ve turned on the radio since April, you may have heard it in this far-reaching, and hilarious, viral video.
After signing with 300 early in the year, the Atlanta rapper quietly dropped his tape 4 Reasons, featuring sleeper slappers like “Spend It.” He followed it up a few weeks ago with the banger that is ""Woke Up", as well as a few other new tracks that have two very awesome things in common: they’re produced by London On Da Track, and they prove that we have a lot to look forward to from Dae Dae.
Premiering today on The FADER is The DefAnition, Dae Dae and London On Da Track’s collaborative tape. Dae Dae’s soulful rap-singing combined with the magic-making and milly-rock-inducing production of London makes for a non-stop, coursing, true-to-Atlanta project. Songs range from wake-up-and-grind anthems; a track that calls out “Bullshit," featuring 21 Savage; and a reflective and personal take on the Black Lives Matter movement. In an email to The FADER, Dae Dae explained: “Me and London thought it would be a good idea to link up and put our talents together and see how it would turn out.” It’s fair to say it turned out pretty well.
