When Drake gave Dave a shout out on Beats 1 he was only confirming what most people in London already knew - that the Streatham rapper meant business.
New EP 'Six Paths' is out now, and it's sheer fire from start to finish - a study in intensity of word play that ranks up there with any in 2k16.
Closing cut '71' has received the full visual treatment, shot in and around Venice Beach, Los Angeles, shot by long-time collaborator LX.
Tune in now.
As if that wasn't enough... Dave has decided to repay Drake's infamous 'Wanna Know' remix by re-working the Toronto rapper's own 'Two Birds One Stone'.
Re-tooled as 'Two Birds No Stones', you can check it out below.
