If you haven’t heard Donny Doomsday’s music, we suggest you take a listen. The hip hop artist is filled with wordplay and charisma in his rhyme. His music is “unique twist of conscious old school hip hop with a christian based influence combined with a new school take on an old school groove.” With that description alone, will peak an interest to what the budding artist have to say. And he has a story to tell. We caught up with Donny to talk about his music and more. Check it out below.
Tell us about yourself and your music.
My music is a huge melting pot. I’m from Seattle originally. So a lot of my music has west coast themes and vibes. But my favorite rapper is Big L. So I’ve got everything that comes with a 90s east coast artist. But I also think as far as hip hop. Houston has the most unique, inclusive and diverse culture that exists. My name comes from my production preferences.
How would you describe your sound?
I would describe my sound as dark but positive. The production choices I’ll use are grimy type sounds. The beats are tinged with trap drums on the low end. With eerie synths and creative samples and loops. The lyrics are always positive though so I think it makes for a dope contrast. I self produce. So most of what a person would hear from me is going to be Donny Doomsday through and through. I’ve really worked to have distinct sound.
Talk about the experience making your song/mixtape.
Reality Raps was crazy because I’ve dropped projects before. I just really feel like this particular project, the talent and the quality finally came together. I feel like records started sounding the way they do in my head. I feel like this project really showcases the things I can do with a microphone. Reality Raps was an album completely based in Reality and the lyrics are based off stories of myself. That’s what I want to try to do with all of my music. Convey people’s reality. Possibly start a new genre of rap. Reality Rap.
What are you currently working on? Any new projects? Shows?
Currently I’ve got some large shows coming up including opening up for Lil Wayne when he comes to Houston. Derek Minor, also a lot of local shows. I’m working production wise with alot of the up and coming talent within Houston and also around the country. I want to throw a huge shout-out to my management team Allen Management and Colombian Queen ENT for all of the plugs they’ve been helping me out with. Also tentatively working on my next project. And am also working on a small mixtape with up and coming Houston producer BP On The Track. So I’ve got a few things kinda moving over the next couple months.
What has been your biggest highlight in your music career this far?
The biggest highlight so far has been being able to perform during all of the Superbowl festivities here in Houston a couple years ago. It was the 1st check I had gotten for music. It was a great chance to get in front of people and make fans. I am so greatful at having been selected for that opportunity.
