Video: Donnis on Good*Fella Radio’s Hip Hop Series

A few weeks ago we caught up with hip-hop artist Donnis. Donnis talks to us about how he first got into music during his duties in the Air Force in Japan. He spoke about why he didn’t get signed in 03′, how he’s revolutionizing the sound of the south and much more. He also gives us a dope freestyle at the end.

Props to GFR

    Look at the internet as the new “underground”..

    ^^
    That’s exactly what it is. I was flipping thru the new XXL during my lunch break, and they made a comparison between the current crop in “net-stars”, and the Rawkus led underground movement of the late 90s.

  2. b-ease Says:

    ^ all of them didnt need to be on every song, they coulda mixed it up a lil…

    ^^
    Word. For all my SH shots, I did give the LP an honest listen, and it just wasnt that dope. No two ways around it.

    Mickey Factz, Charles ham, donnnie Goines etc are our modern day members of the chitlin circuit.. I bet a lot of clubs are downsizing so they can make money of these low budgeted, one hit wonders.

    ^ the thing all these niggas having in common, is that they are boring as fuck. I give the lil nigga charles ham some credit, I have managed to listen to entire songs of his… the others not so much… shits painful at the 10 second mark.

  6. Beezy Says:

    damn bernard you already rsvp’d yes and put a little statement on the e-vite website

    These niggas aint even underground, they the fuckin mantle. Who the fuck is a Donnis?

    ^I think Crooked throws the group off the most. there’s no laid back style to him. even over the most chill beat it sounds like he’s trying to fight somebody. He’s the Canibus of the group.

    Hughes Brothers Talk Tupac Altercation+

    In the current issue of VIBE, Allen Hughes (on the left) breaks his silence regarding the 1993 altercation between he and Tupac. Their dispute stemmed from Pac losing the role of “Shariff” in their film, Menace II Society. Pac was later convicted of assault and battery.

    “The biggest misnomer is that me and Tupac got into any fight. It was me and 12 Crips that he got to jump me. He didn’t do shit,” Allen claims. “Tupac didn’t lay a hand on me. I had my hands on him. But there was not a physical fight between me and Tupac. It was a physical fight between me and 12 gangbangers. I believe they are called the Rolling 40s and they rolled me up pretty good.”

    Allen adds: “Tupac was an artist. Tupac was not a gangbanger. Tupac could not fight to save his motherfucking life. I know that for a fact. He was an immensely gifted person and he was far, far, from a thug.” He lets out a deep sigh. “I think that’s just years of frustration that just came out.“

    ^^^^

    Dies at 2pac cudnt fight to save his life…but this is well known, saw a dvd bout when pac was in oakland and got beat up and than hid under the car…tru story

  14. G7 Says:

    ^lmao

  15. cOLD Says:

    ^ lol, did you listen to that new cannibus song, not the diss song… the other one.

  16. b-ease Says:

    ^^
    He’s definetly the odd man out stylistically. He and Royce manage to meld pretty decently (ll), but he always sounds like he’s on a completely different song when juxtaposed with Joey and Joell.

  17. el feces loco Says:

    word B-ease..how much money you got on stash?

    I just pictured a club called Online Underground..Times Square. Only blog rappers performing.

    It should take about $750k to do..I need $740k?

    Every night a new act

    Donnis
    Charles Ham
    Donald Goines
    Mickey factz
    red Cafe
    outasight

    Me: Got that new P.O.R.N mixtape

    J from 139th: *Stops vehicle* Get out the fuckin car.

    ^wow if this is true

  20. Beezy Says:

    im opening a club named Valentime’s in Harlem

    Jimmy will be performing every night

  21. cOLD Says:

    once a rapper gets signed can you really call him underground anymore?

  22. b-ease Says:

    ^^
    I can definetly throw you like $300. Can’t promise any more than that.

  23. el feces loco Says:

    nah… Hamilton has aready done more than the other two will ever do in their careers combined …

    ^^Seriously if I had a club now I’d hire most of these cats..If you have more than 5000 followers on twitter and have been posted on NR at least 3x you would get a club date…that’s like 300 rappers..i could do a show a day.

  24. landlord Says:

    word… Royce and Crooked go well together no homo…to me its the fat puerto rican that throws everything off… his voice just dont go well with the other 3… in fact, Joell’s voice can be annoying at times… kinda nasal and whiney… like a morbidly overweight 13 year old ..

    Sure, if said label isnt really makin him visible on a nationwide level and he’s not producing (or even trying to) hit singles. Gangstarr was underground, so was Group Home, but they were both signed to majors. MOP, the list goes on and on…

  39. landlord Says:

    SMH @ Joell Ortiz using the Aesop Rock flow on “Soldier”… or is that Aesop?

  40. cOLD Says:

    I prefered nah when they used to let post live and refer all suspect rappers to the lite section, or even better stray shots… nowadays niggas is getting too much shine.

  41. Mr. Iceberg slim Says:

    The best example of what S.H meanst to people is when someone asked Jadakiss, “What do you think of S.H?” and he said “who is that?…..that said it all

    ^^

    Joe Buddens antics were only visable to those who are internet rap fans. Those same internet rap fans had most likely already decided if they were for\against Joe, therefor I dont think it had too much of an effect

  52. Beezy Says:

    Nah Right posted Peter Rosenberg’s christmas album

    this website is an embarrassment

    ^^
    I can’t call it. He did alot of corny shit, no doubt, but then I think, that may have actually increased awareness of the group. Id tend think the cliche, no publicity is bad publicity (or something like that) still holds true for the most part.

  54. Harlem World Says:

    *Approaches the local Nigerian hustling mixtapes on the corner*
