Donnis – Tonight (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 23rd, 2010 by Hyphen

I’m pretty much a sucker for anything shot in Tokyo or Hong Kong that showcases cityscapes or flashing lights.  I’m a simple man.

Donnis – Gone (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 15th, 2010 by Hyphen

Damn, my man who doesn’t like when I post Drake stuff on the site is gonna want to skip over this one too hahah.  Not to compare the two unfairly, but Donnis does share Drake’s abilities to appeal to a nice cross-section of the hip-hop crowd.  He can rap.  He can make catchy hooks (this one is a monster).  He picks good beats.  As he references in the song…it’s a nice mixture of Kanye, T.I., ‘Kast, Jay-Z influences, combined with his own talent that shapes his sound.  I’m a fan.
