When the going gets tough, it’s sometimes best to take a moment to look on the bright side.  If you find yourself out of a job, for example, don’t let it bum you out—simply appreciate the fact that you have so much time to sit around the house and get HighDonnis, for one, is clearly aware of the benefits of optimism; though this newly-released track off his self-titled debut (which has yet to receive a release date) finds him flat broke and so hungry he could “eat the couch,” he can still enjoy the simple pleasures of recreational drug use.  Donnis’ characteristically bouncy verses are backed by a lush, sampled instrumental courtesy of Detroit’s D. Focis, who readers may remember from the similarly mellow boardwork he contributed to Bobby Creekwater‘s Rainman.  If this hypnotically catchy cut brightened up your day, keep it locked to the Booth for Donnis’ contribution to our exclusive freestyle series, coming later this month.
