Although it was released over a day ago, I finally just got a chance to listen to Donnis’ first official EP. Available only on Datpiff.com and through iTunes, the EP, which has the length of an LP is much different than what I expected. After listening to his first mixtape “Diary of an ATL Brave”, I gave Donnis a lot of credit for his production and his rhymes. However, after listening to “Fashionably Late” over the past day, I realized that Donnis is not that great of a rapper.
While his production of this EP is dope, his rhymes just aren’t up to par. Yet, there are a few songs that are worth checking out because of their samples. Notice the Rihanna sample on “Yup” and the Ludacris sample on “Folk Tales“. These are probably the best songs on what seems to be an irritating and annoying EP to listen to. I had high hopes for Donnis. Quite frankly, I thought he’d be the next big thing to come out of Atlanta. Looks like “Fashionably Late” was just a set back.
