Donny Goines – No Apologies (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 13th, 2010 by Hyphen

Donny goes the hell off on this one and the M-Phazes beat is crazy (reminds me of Freeway’s “Line ‘Em Up“).  Looking forward to seeing him perform this at SXSW in a few days.

Charles Hamilton, Donny Goines, Mistah F.A.B., & Shad x SXSW

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on March 28th, 2009 by Hyphen

I told y’all these cyphers were breaking out everywhere down in Austin.  This pretty much sums up the kind of vibe that SXSW carries…everyone was just down there having a good time and people were all about their music.  Fabby Davis Jr. murdered this by the way.

Donny Goines – I Am Moving (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 18th, 2008 by Hyphen

Since my other job deals with music videos, I think TAOD is going to end up showcasing even more dope clips than I would have previously.  Here’s the new one for Donny Goines’ “I Am Moving,” a track that premiered on MTVu earlier today.  Fans of DMX’s It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot will remember the producer, Dame Grease, from “Get At Me Dog,” “Damien,” “Stop Being Greedy,” the criminally underrated classic, “The Convo,” and more.

You can help get the homey Donny into rotation on MTVu by voting for him right here.  Support hip-hop and cast a vote against generic emo pop rock at the same time.  Seems like a win/win to me.

Donny Goines & Skyzoo – Bars, Pt. 9

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on July 31st, 2008 by Hyphen

Ha, ironic that I mention I don’t really like a capella verses like this and I end up posting 2 back to back.  Had to do it though.  The homies Skyzoo and Donny Goines spit a little something for y’all in Manhattan for part 9 of Donny’s “Bars” series.  I can’t wait to peep those projects Sky’s working on…
