  • Artist: Donny Goines
  • Track: Ghetto U.S.A. ft. Tess
  • Producer: K-Salaam & Beatnick
  • Album: Minute After Midnight

Some view emcee Donny Goines as a hip-hop purist, but if you ask him, he'll tell you he's simply a product of his hometown. As is the case with any big city, NYC contains many lower-class neighborhoods. On a new record, Goines describes Ghetto U.S.A. making the point that, though our country is a large one, poverty is the same no matter where you go. Though he speaks on the negatives (which some listeners might deride him for) Goines stresses the most positive aspect of his upbringing in the streets: the opportunity to witness the birth and ongoing growth of hip-hop. Featuring Tess on background vocals and frequently-featured production duo K-Salaam & Beatnick on the beat, Ghetto U.S.A. is the latest single off the forthcoming Minute After Midnight, which is set to drop next week.
