Donnis - All I Need Freestyle (Baby’s Star Jam Remix)

Posted 5 years ago
Tags: LaDonnis
Producer:
DE DE MOUSE & Luke Walker
Album:
Nippon Sounds EP

I know regular visitors to the Booth think they’ve seen every project idea under the sun brought out into the light, but I guarantee I have something new for even the most grizzled Booth vets. Donnis may be an ATL native but he began his musical journey in Japan, so it was only right that Onitsuka Tiger grabbed him to helm their U.S. to Japan collaborative EP Nippon Sounds. Lead single All I Need (Baby’s Star Jam Remix) finds the Southern Lights creator going in over a beat by DE DE MOUSE and Luke Walker that’s by turns triumphant horns, club ready and hazily ambient. It’s a combination that would overwhelm most emcees but Donnis rises above the sonic tide nicely, laying out his love for the finer things in life, pausing only to throw in the occasional Home Improvement reference along the way. Like chicken teriyaki and french fries, All I Need is obviously two great thing that go great together and is more than enough impetus for me to check out the Nippon Sounds EP when it drops soon. (Seriously, chicken teriyaki and fries are delicious.)
