Jay Electronica and Dave East connect on a new track.
Mass Appeal Records has released a new collaboration with Jay Electronica, Dave East, and 070 Phi. The song is called “No Hoodie (Nothin’ to Lose)” and it features Dave East and Jay Electronica rapping stories of struggle while 070 Phi provides the hook.
On the song Jay raps:
I mastered the dark nights, Christian Bale/ Tryna find home-like Dorothy Gale/ In the land of the free and the home of the brave, well that’s just cap, we lost in Hell/ Walk the streets with no face and name/ Nothin’ left to do but embrace the pain/ Wanderin’ through this wilderness, while my only companion is hate and shame
The song comes in support of a nonprofit called Hoodies for the Homeless, an organization trying to bring awareness to the issues of homelessness,

Music can be more than notes and words. If it’s sharpened and delivered with heart and true aim. It can effect the landscape. @budadafuture @grandzmuzik @mike_kuz @whatsgoodkev we’re the scope that @daveeast @jayelectronica @070phi aimed through and hit dead center. Thanks to @massappeal for having an open mind @nygiants for giving this legs and @diplomacyworldwide for always being down with our bad ideas. This time….we were right
