David Brewster Jr. popularly known as Dave East was born on June 3, 1988, in Harlem, Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA. He was raised in East Harlem which was his mother’s residence and later in Queensbridge: where he lived with his aunt in his adolescent years. Dave is of Dominican and Bajan descent. During his school days, he played football and basketball at Springbrook High School. At the same time, he also played at the Amateur Athletic Union with Greivis Vasquez, and Ty Lawson. Moreover, he also developed a close relationship with Kevin Durant. After graduating from high school, he attended the University of Richmond and then transferred to Towson University.

That brought his basketball dream to a sudden halt and he decided to shift gears to music. He made the right decision because when you look at Dave’s net worth, he is flourishing.
