Harlem rapper Dave East with billboard chart toppers "True Story: Paranoia" & "Survival" is also a baseball cap fan. In fact Dave East love New Era hats so much that he has partnered with New Era Co. to make his own branded version of his favorite 59Fifty fitted hats and 9Fifty snapbacks. The hats do not have an entirely new design, except for maybe one which is still simple in style, much like rapper Meek Mill's New Era hat. Many of the hats just contain small modifications, but you know what they say, "Sometimes you have to change things that are perfectly normal, just to make them your own." In this "Celebrity Edition" we focus on the small modifications that makes a Dave East fitted hat.
This fitted hat is pretty self explanatory. It is a red 59Fifty low pro style hat with the words "got gas?". We say "59Fifty low pro style" because this fitted doesn't seem to be a New Era fitted hat but its still simplistic and unique. The word 'gas" in this context doesn't mean gas in the literal sense, for those who are not familiar with slang. "Gas" used in this way means to give compliments, to give someone confident, to inflate someone's ego.
The Dave East "DE" 59Fifty fitted hat is created in a very classic fitted hat style without any of the pizzazz but still unique enough that fans have gone crazy to get their hands on this hat. The fitted hat is full black with the only white visible is the New Era flagship logo located on the left of the fitted and the front D East logo located on the front.
