Dave New York | Interview
Dave New York is a b-boy from Queens, NY. Growing up witnessing the birth of hip hop in the Bronx and later in Los Angeles, Dave danced in a b-boy crew called CIA (Children In Art). Later in life, he became involved in the car rental business in LA and was helping musicians find cars for transporation or music videos. He earned the respect of Black Thought and Questlove (The Roots) in 1994 after doing them a huge favor, and was introduced to many of his now-close friends such as Talib Kweli, Common, Eve, Bahamadia, the late J. Dilla, the late Guru (Gang Starr), Jean Grae, and countless others. As one of J. Dilla’s best friends, Dave appears at the end of the song “Baby” on the album The Shining. Dave is now finishing his compilation project to showcase the hip hop music that he loves from his favorite artists.
