Turns out that XXL Freshman, Atlantic Records signee and drunk fan puncher Donnis was only getting warmed up when he dropped off his last, DJBooth-approved track Yup. In fact, you could even call him en fuego. Appropriately, Donnis’ new leak More Fire features a boiling beat from producer Ced Young with definite trap music roots, and for his part Donnis manages to drop both the first Clue (”Kill it with a dagger in the dining room, tell Professor Plum…”) and To Wong Foo (”watchin my boys turn bi**h to wong foo”) references in hip-hop history. Never say the man doesn’t rhyme outside the box. On the other hand, didn’t Drake already drop an almost identical “Mr. Ripley” line? Or am I thinking of something else? Someone set me straight in the comments below. More Fire can be found on the Fashionably Late EP, which is set to drop the same day as his identically named Fashionably Late mixtape on June 22. Circle your calendars Donnis-lovers, it’s gonna be a hot summer.
