Last year Nas decided to add Dave East to his Mass Appeal Label and now East is flexing his rhymes with a new track titled, "No Coachella For Me."

"Harlem's Dave East continues to impress with consistent new heat, but he wants us to know he's not just another festival-hopping rapper," reports HotNewHipHop, who premiered the track first.

"F*** Coachella, Dave East is stuck in the trap. While much of the hip-hop world was out in Indio, California performing in front of thousands of festively-dressed hipsters, Dave East was staying put right here in NYC."

Coachella brought out acts such as Drake and Action Bronson just to name a few. However, East separates himself from these names by choosing to stick to his hardcore roots and stay in Harlem to move that weight in "No Coachella For Me." He spits lyrics of whipping and whipping similar to that of another "CoCo" lover by the name of O.T. Genasis. It's a song that goes against the masses in an unapologetic way and East doesn't seem to care about one of the most popular music festivals.

"Nas made a very brief mention of his new signee during a visit to Angie Martinez's Power 105.1 show on Wednesday, only saying, "that's a real new one, I can't really talk about that one yet." Fair enough," reported MTV late last year.

"We know it's real though, since East's Twitter timeline is flooded with congratulations on his new deal."
