Rolling down the city streets, banging some fresh tunes and perhaps enjoying a little quality kush on a sunny day is never not a good time, but to complete the picture one needs an appropriately fly whip. Booth favorite Donnis, for one, is a fan of the classics – on his latest mixtape leak, the freestyle series alum hops into his Ford Mustang to ride in style. Backed by the appropriately street-ready, piano loop/percussion boardwork of Syience, the artist trades the emotionally-fraught meditations of his last feature for rhymes about the perennial topics of weed, whips, women and cash – but does so with plenty of laid-back wit, lacing the beat with punchlines that range from the allusive (“My Hustle Grand, you ain’t seen me out with T.I.P.?”) to the risqué (“N*ggas feel my 16s like a child molester.”). Think you’ll be banging this one till the wheels fall off? More quality tunes await on Donnis’ Karmaloop-presented Southern Lights LP, scheduled to hit the ‘net for free download April 12.
