Though there are some who would try and pin hip-hop’s “death” on the rise of Southern rap, few could deny the region’s important contributions to the genre. From famed ATLien duo OutKast to the morose Geto Boys, the South has produced artists that have been well received both critically and commercially. Following in the footsteps of freshman emcee B.o.B, fellow ATL native Donnis is getting ready to raise his profile with the release of Diary Of An Atlanta Brave, a collaborative mixtape with 10 Deep. Over Do It finds Donnis getting busy over an epic bassline by D. Focis, touching on his experiences with industry politics as well as spitting one of the illest defecation-related punchlines I’ve heard in some time. Boasting production from J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Tha Bizness, and many more, Donnis’ latest street album is scheduled to hit the ‘net August 20th.
