Donnis Inks with Atlantic and Announces Debut US Tour
Donnis is quickly making a name as one of the most talented new stars on the Southern hip-hop scene. The Georgia-based MC first attracted attention last year with 10.Deep's breakout mixtape, "DIARY OF AN ATL BRAVE," and has since scored major appeal amongst listeners with his smoothed out rap anthem, "Gone" (released on revered DJ/Producer A-trak's Brooklyn based Fool's Gold Records). "Donnis is a truly original, compelling new voice on the hip-hop landscape, and we pulled out all the stops to bring him into the Atlantic family. His creativity and lyrical flow are hugely impressive, and the Diary of an ATL Brave mixtape was a captivating introduction to this major talent. Now that we've sealed the deal, we're looking forward to watching Donnis take it to the next level" proclaimed Atlantic Records Chairman and CEO Craig Kallman.
While hard at work completing his Atlantic debut album, Donnis will keep listeners entertained with his new mixtape "Fashionably Late" set to be released this month. Currently featured in the March issue of XXL's "Show and Prove", Donnis will also be included in the magazine's hugely influential "Freshmen 10" alongside West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle and J. Cole from North Carolina. The talented rapper who has already shared stages with such luminaries as T.I., Chingy, and 112 – will also be among the new stars performing at the upcoming South By Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas.
