Boston, MA – Dave East was evidently forced to cancel an after party event in Boston on Friday night (November 29) after allegedly receiving death threats.
According to East’s Instagram Stories, the owner of Icon Nightclub on Warrenton Street claimed he fielded two anonymous phone calls from someone threatening to shoot the Harlem-bred rapper.
East appeared skeptical of the entire situation and made it clear he was disappointed in the club owner’s actions.
“The club owner to Icon in Boston said he got 2 anonymous phone calls that they was gone shoot me tonight lol so they ain’t let me in the club,” he wrote. “I know one thing, if a nigga gone do that he ain’t calling the club telling them. Sorry to whoever came out to see me and to the owner of Icon you a bozo.”
East added in another since-deleted Instagram post, “They Said I Was A Risk To The Club And I Had Death Threats So They Wouldn’t Allow Me In. With 500 Cops I Guess They Was Still Gone Shoot The Club Up. God Bless.”
The 31-year-old is currently performing shows in support of his new album Survival, which arrived earlier this month. The 20-track effort featured guest appearances from Nas, Rick Ross, Fabolous, Gunna, Lil Baby, Ty Dolla $ign and DJ Premier, among others.
