Donnis, ‘All I Need’ – Song Review
Despite being part of 'XXL' magazine's 2010 Freshman Class, alongside rappers like Big Sean, Wiz Khalifia, and J. Cole, Donnis has not reached his hip-pop threshold, as of yet. Hopefully, his new track, 'All I Need,' will generate enough buzz for him.
Produced by the Japanese production team Nippon Sounds, the Atlanta rapper by way of Japan dreams of living the lifestyle of the rich and famous. He rhymes, "I've been dreaming about this since Phat Farm, Fabu / You too woulda say that I have a loose screw / Hater / I tamed the two-man Taylor."
Donnis loses his lyrical flow in the middle of the song, which nearly slows the track down to a halt. Thankfully, the punchy club beat, soaring trumpets and vocal sample helped him regain his hashtag rap flow.
'All I Need' is a good introduction for those who may not be familiar with this promising emcee. With little more visibility and some radio airplay, people might pay attention to what he has to say, and that's all he needs.
