Dave East and A$AP Ferg Chasing C.R.E.A.M. on ‘Paper Chasin” [LISTEN]
Two of Harlem’s top spitters Dave East and A$AP Ferg have money on their minds on the C.R.E.A.M. anthem, “Paper Chasin’.” The song is from the 2nd installment of Def Jam’s Direct Deposit series, which features new songs from artists on their all-star label.
As the title suggests, Dave and Ferg are on the paper chase and collect all of the greenbacks they can get. The chorus says it all: “Chasing, chasing , chasing all this paper chasing / I’m like a bad doctor, I ain’t got no patience (Yeah) / I’m gon’ work for months, I won’t take vacations (That’s Right).”
Over producer Cardiak’s booming, piano-tickling track, Dave delivers his luxury rhymes, rapping, “Ferg and your boy on and paper chasing / All of these diamonds, they look like a lake and I mix the Margiella with Bathing Ape,” while Ferg adds, “Live in Harlem like I’m Frank Lucas / Dentist put a diamond where the tooth is / White and black bitch like clueless / Motel view, how we do this?”
The Direct Deposit Vol. 2 features tracks by Iggy Azalea and Lil Uzi Vert (“Can’t Lose”), YG & 21 Savage (“I Be On”), Vince Staples (“BagBak”), Big Sean and Chance the Rapper (“Living Single”) and many more. You can cop songs from the collection right now on iTunes.
