Below, we’ve got the latest from donSMITH, “To Be Grateful.” In a word, it’s astonishing. It’s beautiful. It’s just, plain and simple, good-ass music from an incredible artist I just happened to stumble across before taking my vacay.
Sonically, it’s like a mix between Mach-Hommy and Kendrick Lamar. That means if you need some lyrically impressive, introspective AF hip-hop with visuals and bars that’ll make you think, nod your head and question the existence of everything around you on a “hmm, maybe I’ve been going about things wrong” tip, this one’s for you. I love the hook, which is done by Zacchae’us Paul, which adds a great deal of jazzy soul to the track. Then the verses? Each one tells a story about how we can go, where our lives can take us, and how to get there—without losing a part of ourselves. Like I said, it’s beautiful music throughout and it makes you feel and think.
Check out the incredibly intricate visuals above (I won’t give anything away) and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
