I found this next artist thanks to gamefly…yes gamefly, let me explain. I went to gamefly to see what game I had coming next, and I noticed they had free mp3 downloads. I was bored, so checked it out. Saw a group by the name of “Little Brother”. Looked like Hip-Hop, so downloaded it…not bad. It also had a link to their myspace, so checked it out as well. Again, not bad. Checked out their friends and noticed another artist.

This one going by the name of Donnie. He looked like he did R&B, so again, I checked it out…and was very pleasantly surprised. He’s got a very unique sound in this day and age, and just a consciousness about him. He’s not crying or bitching about his ex-lady friend, he’s not trying to be hard. He’s just singing about life, the things that affects him, and the world.

I’m not gonna lie. I immediately went to my favorite download spots to see what I can find…nothing. So like any good citizen I broke down and bought both of his CD’s. They were worth the money. Especially his debut CD “The Colored Section”. I don’t really have a favorite song yet, so I’m just gonna post the first one that “spoke” to me. That song. Beautiful Me off his debut CD, The Colored Section.

Lyrics to Beautiful Me

Head shoulders knees and toes
Lips, my eyes, my mouth, my nose
They all go against what society calls beautiful
I’m left handed in my right mind
I’m pleasantly plump a phat dime
Black as night and a bright night
As you can see I am beautiful me

I was born by the river the day after the tenth
And its hard to deliver, Scorpio energy’s so intense
Makes me wanna holler, now I know what Marvin meant
The industry’s so cold, give me the things to my ancestors you owe, so

Head shoulders knees and toes
Lips, my eyes, my mouth, my nose
They all go against what society calls beautiful
I’m left handed in my right mind
I’m pleasantly plump a phat dime
Black as night and a bright night
As you can see I am beautiful me

Said American music was built upon my back
R&B, soul, your rock and roll, your blues, your ragtime and your jazz
Yes I herald the gospel, funk, hip-hop techno
And I’ll sing forever in the name of the American Negro

I’m not a nigger I’m a negro,
when I become a nigger I’ll let you know

Head shoulders knees and toes
Lips, my eyes, my mouth, my nose
They all go against what society calls beautiful

Repeat 2x

I’m left handed in my right mind
I’m pleasantly plump a phat dime
Black as night and a bright night
As you can see I am beautiful me

I’m not a nigger I’m a negro,
when I become a nigger I’ll let you know

Repeat
