Video: Donzelly – “Cheetah”Music — By Logoism on June 11, 2012 at 1:58 am
You gotta respect the youngsters that are out here keepin’ it original for their coast. Today I want to introduce you to Donzelly, a sixteen year old rapper out of California who is striving to get by through his music. What stands out about Donzelly is his laid back/ cool West Coast rhyming style, its nostalgic and modern at the same time. He has just put out his debut mixtape “NINE FIVE”, by the beat selection and his rhyming style you would think that the tape is an ode to that era, nope. It’s all about him getting by and the numbers are kind of symbolic in his story.
” I was born in 95, so I named it after nine five. But it’s more to it than that. Only reason I rap is so I won’t have to work a regular boring ass nine to five. Oh and shit, I had to record my whole tape in 1 night because the files fucked up. So I started at 12, finished around 3, went home got 2hrs of sleep and woke up for school at 5.”- Donzelly
Below is his second single “Cheetah” off of the NINE FIVE mixtape, you can download it below after the video, enjoy.
