It’s rare to hear a somber hip-hop record end happily, but DJBooth Freestyle Series alum Donny Goines is throwing the book out the…wait for it…window with his latest track, My Window. Here Goines focuses on his storytelling skills and invites listeners inside his eyes for a look at the daily drama he sees in his neighborhood. Backed by yet another impressive Statik Skeletah beat (does the man ever fail?), whose boarwork’s smooth feel contrasts the harsh theme of the track nicely, the cut follows the lives of two long suffering young people struggling with problems beyond their control. (Spoiler alert!) However, when the two meet each other, they realize that happiness can be found even when hope is bleak within. Yeah, that’s some deep ish. Fans can find more similarly high quality hip-hop on My Window’s home, DJ Quiz Presents: Quiz Knows a Mixtape, which dropped yesterday. And as always, keep it locked to the Booth for more.
