Mixtape Mondays are back! My name is Greg from GregsHipHop.com and I’ll be runnin’ this wonderful corner of Jetcomx from now on. If you ever wanna get at me I’m Greg@jetcomx.com. I’ll be back here every Monday so enjoy.
Diary of an ATL Brave is the first mixtape project by Atlanta native Donnis and dropped back on August 20. I didn’t get the chance to give a listen until almost a week later on a plane back to the east coast and I gotta say I listened to it three times through on that flight.
So lets get right into it. Donnis has a southern swagga and drawl but his flow has substance and is as hard as any NY lyricist. He’s got some good one liners but his strength is really how his thoughts develop through a verse and even between verses. There’s a real hunger in his songs and the result is a really high quality project. If you just listen to beats you can get by on this but you’ll be missing the stories in the songs that Donnis tells so well.
