We’re just a few short months into 2010, but it’s already shaping up to be a very, very good year for rising rap star (and exclusive freestyle series contributor) Donnis. With the ink just beginning to dry on his brand new contract with Atlantic, the Atlanta Brave has ample reason to celebrate – and that’s exactly what he does on OD, a track originally released as part of a South by Southwest mixtape sampler. A generous helping of brass fanfare courtesy of heavyweight producer Needlz sets a triumphant mood as the newly-signed emcee revels in his recent rise from online buzzmaker to hip-hop megastar-in-the-making: “I went from seein’ sh*t that I couldn’t afford, from drivin’ a Ford to bein’ chauffeured…” Donnis enthusiastic flows and Needlz’ bombastic production stylings make for a track that’s damned hard to resist – but why would you want to? For more new tunes from the latest Booth favorite to make it to the major leagues, check out his Fashionably Late street album when it hits the ‘net sometime this spring.
