Dave East has entered the next level of rap stardom, acting. The Harlem MC makes an appearance on BET’s Being Mary Jane.

Fresh off the success of his well-received mixtape Kairi Chanel, an XXL Freshman spot and a new deal with Def Jam Records, Dave East is ready for another close-up.

In a clip promoting the new season of BET’s Being Mary Jane, East is seen playing himself, a new rapper on the rise who isn’t quite used to being interviewed on a national television show. He appears in the scene rapping a verse from his 2015 song “KD” and then doing an interview with the Mary Jane character played by Gabrielle Union, who also happens to be a fan of East in real life.
