SURVIVAL follows up ‘Survival Pacc,’ Dave East’s two-song summer EP, which comprised “Wanna be a G” featuring Max B, and “Everyday” featuring Gunna. The menacing video for “Everyday,” directed by Andrew Sandler, features Dave East at a high stakes poker game, intercut with Gunna trading bars with East in a dimly lit room – watch it HERE.
