The 13-track mixtape gained traction behind Dave’s Def Jam debut single“Perfect” featuring Chris Brown, whose video boasts more than 40 million combined YouTube views of to date.
Paranoia: A True Story was followed up by the Paranoia 2 mixtape (January 2018), which was supported by a 10-minute short film, “The Hated.” The gritty drama centered on two childhood friends who get caught up in the street hustle that eventually lands one of them in the Rikers Island jail.

ABOUT DAVE EAST:
Praised for his lyricism and raw storytelling, and blessed with a loyal New York following, Dave East is one of the most promising rappers on the scene today. Born and raised in Harlem, he was inspired by older generation East Coast rappers ranging from Notorious B.I.G. to Styles P, Jadakiss, Cam’ron, and Big Pun. After a college basketball stint, Dave’s attention gravitated full time to music. Starting in 2010, he released an array of critically acclaimed mixtapes that earned him widespread recognition in the hip-hop community. His 7th mixtape, 2014’s Black Rose caught Nas by surprise, and resulted in Dave’s signing to Nas’ Mass Appeal imprint. Subsequent mixtapes Hate Me Now (2015) and Kairi Chanel (2016, named for Dave’s daughter), boasted a collective guest list topped by Nas, Styles P, Pusha T, Jadakiss, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Cam’ron, Beanie Sigel, Rico Love, and The Game, to name just a few. Kairi Chanel led off with the storytelling visual for “Keisha” followed by “Type Of Time”, with over 12 million combined YouTube views to date. After nabbing a spot on the notorious XXL Freshman Class in 2016, he jumped onto the Def Jam roster late that year. He was first heard on “Gold Digger” featuring A-Boogie, from Def Jam’s Direct Deposit Vol. 2 compilation (February 2017). Paranoia: A True Story marked Dave’s official Def Jam debut EP in August 2017 (with “Perfect” featuring Chris Brown; and “The Hated”). The Paranoia 2 mixtape followed in January 2018.

In the tradition of years past, JMBLYA will offer festival-goers a stacked lineup filled to the brim with a highly curated selection of today’s hottest and most sought-after hip-hop performers. Grammy Award-nominated multi-platinum rapper/producer and Texas-native Travis Scott will headline the 2019 festival.

Other notable performers on the lineup include three generations of outstanding emcees from Louisiana, including Grammy Award-winning and oft-labeled “Best Rapper Alive” Lil Wayne, who continues to perform in support of his recently released, long-awaited twelfth studio album, Tha Carter V; hustler-turned-rapper Kevin Gates, who continues to churn out new music following 2018’s Chained to the City and Luca Brasi 3 mixtapes; and one of today’s most exciting up-and-comers, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, who continues to perform in support of his debut studio album, Until Death Call My Name, released last spring.
Also set to grace the main stages at JMBLYA 2019 are rappers Gunna and Sheck Wes, both of whom are touring with Travis Scott as part of his nationwide “Astroworld—Wish You Were Here” tour; viral sensation-turned-emcee Bhad Bhabie, who is currently the youngest female rapper ever to appear on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and who continues to tease new music from her yet-to-be-named debut album; and Los Angeles hot act Blueface, whose most recent single, “Thotiana,” continues to gain popularity while making waves on radio stations across the country.
Additional performers include female hip-hop duo City Girls, who are currently signed to Quality Control, the music label home to other rap megastars like Migos, Cardi B, and Lil Yachty; Houston’s own Maxo Kream, who just released his long-awaited debut album, Punken, this past January; and rising Filipino-American artist P-Lo, who might be most known for founding the hip hop record production collective HBK Gang and who released his sophomore studio album, PRIME, this past July. Two aspiring Texas-based emcees, WhooKilledKenny from Austin and 10k.caash from Dallas, help to round out the 2019 lineup.

Those interested in any of the VIP packages, especially Drop Top VIP, are encouraged to act fast and purchase soon as each option is limited in quantity.
Each leg of the 2019 festival will again support a local charitable partner. On Day 1 in Dallas, JMBLYA will benefit Music Forward, a highly-regarded nonprofit organization which transforms young lives, inspires careers, and champions a more inclusive music industry. Music Forward has impacted over 1M lives and invested $25M towards providing transformational music opportunities to youth from under-represented communities during the last 25+ years. In Austin for Day 2, the festival will donate a portion of proceeds to Grounded in Music, an Austin-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which works with underprivileged children in grades 4 and up to provide music instruction that would be otherwise absent from their school’s curriculum and to connect children with nationally-recognized musicians, opportunities, and scholarships.
JMBLYA would also like to thank returning sponsors Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Red Bull who are helping to make the 2019 festival possible.

When the history books open up, “Drip” will forever be associated with the meteoric and platinum rise of Gunna. Dubbed “The King of Drip” and pegged “to take over the rap world” by Interview, he generated over one billion cumulative streams and achieved one platinum and two gold certifications within a year.

Born and raised in College Park, GA, he immediately gravitated towards innovative hip-hop from the likes of OutKast, Cam’Ron, and Future. Signed to YSL Records, he famously teamed up with label boss Young Thug and Travis Scott on “Floyd Mayweather” from 2016’s Jeffery. Shortly after, he dropped the seminal mixtape Drip Season. 2017 saw him serve up the sequel Drip Season 2 and Drip or Drown. He ascended to superstardom during 2018. Drip Season 3 put up unbelievable numbers, earned Drake’s fandom, and garnered looks from Rolling Stone, GQ, Vogue, Complex, and more. Not to mention, he joined forces with frequent collaborator Lil Baby for the collaborative Drip Harder, which bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200.
