With the success of his standout NBA 2K17 track "Bands" (at 83K plays and climbing on SoundCloud), Bay Area native White Dave, born Noah Coogler, now drops the official video for the song. The clip features a stunning L.A. backdrop, a mariachi band, and Dave's friend Michael B. Jordan -- an oft-times star of films directed by Dave's older brother Ryan Coogler (including the upcoming Black Panther film).
Dave also premieres The Season of the Rich, his current mixtape offering chill head nods like "Hella" and danceable tracks like "Bout the Money" (featuring fellow Golden Coast rappers NEF the Pharoah and Rexx Life Raj).
And when it comes to the best producers to help ensure musical success, Ludwig Goransson -- longtime collaborator to Childish Gambino -- is certainly on the list.
Lucky for Dave, Goransson is also a fan:
"I’ve been watching Dave develop since 2011, listening to him grow into a full-fledged artist. When I had the chance to help produce his new mixtape, I didn’t hesitate."
With regard to Dave's talent, Goransson continues: "He combines making it feel funky, young and fresh with this weird wisdom of someone maybe twice his age. I think that’s what makes his music special. I feel really honored to have been a part of this step in his career."
The Season of the Rich is now available for free download and streaming.
