You might not guess it from the extent to which NYC is glorified in hip-hop and other media, but life in the Big Apple ain’t for everybody. In fact, if you’re not built for the big city, the sky-high rents, sardine can-cramped apartments and sometimes standoffish locals are liable to make you downright Miserable. On his latest single, Tanya Morgan member and Brooklyn resident Donwill illuminates the dark side of life in his home borough, bemoaning the lack of friendly faces (“How I go to the same store for five year but I ain’t greeted by a single cashier?”) and the exorbitant living expenses. seventyMHz handles production duties, flipping a sample from James Blake’s atmospheric Retrograde. This joint isn’t attached to a larger project, but we’ll keep you posted on Donwill’s plans in the weeks and months ahead.
