Donny Goines - What The People Want
Pick any five of today’s top hip-hop records at Billboard and run a search on them at DJBooth.net. Upon browsing through the feedback and overall rating of each record, you’ll notice that members often criticize artists for having little if any lyrical skill and near-zero motivation. For any of our listeners who have written such comments, have no fear; underground Manhattan rapper Donny Goines has heard your complaints. Knowing that What The People Want is true hip-hop, Goines offers up a fast-paced flow over a hypnotic beat by producer Ron Browz (who is widely known as the man who crafted Nas’s Ether record). Although Goines is currently unsigned, he shouldn’t stay that way for too long; after all, isn’t this what the people want?
