Donn P – Datz My Bih

 

Donn P continues tradition of great Brooklyn rappers with bumpin new summer hit ‘Datz My Bih’ 

BROOKLYN, NY – A new street anthem from Brooklyn-based rapper Donn P is hitting the airwaves and drawing in an ever-widening pool of fans. “Datz My Bih” is an upbeat, energetic club-ready hit that’s just in time for the summer. Told from the perspective of a guy picking up his lady, it’s a song with a catchy hook and clever bars that will surely have listeners singing along no matter where they’re at.  

Hailing from the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn, Donn P is an artist and co-founder of the independent label Str8DropEmpire. He’s the youngest of seven children raised by a single mother, though four of his brothers have died over the years. He was closest to his older brother, who had assumed the role of father figure and was instrumental in teaching him how to hustle and to take nothing for granted in life. When Donn P lost his older brother to street violence, he knew he had to be intentional about choosing a different path. Music was the way to go. 

“My mother had been through a lot with her sons and she worried about me hustling to survive,” he said. “I wanted to make her happy and not worry about me, so I knew I had to do something different. The hip-hop scene in New York is a little faded, but a few rappers are bringing it back to life. So I’m working for my time and I’m happy things are coming back around. What you get with my music is all me – my ups, my downs, my wins, my losses, my pain … my music is my therapy. I’m focused on making good music that I hope people can appreciate and find relatable. I want people to listen to my music because it comes from the heart.” 

Donn P said his style can be considered witty street-centered vibes, with lyrics that are gritty yet unorthodox. He credits his influences and inspirations to artists like The Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, Future, Young Thug, Bobby Schmurda, and Pierre “Pee” Thomas, who is the CEO of the label. 

Over the past five years, Donn P has seen his notoriety in the industry steadily grow as he’s had success after success with his music. In 2016, the driven rapper took part in Lil Durk’s 2Xs tour. He then released his first mixtape, “Plug and a Plan” shortly after the tour, which earned many positive reviews. Standout tracks like “Trap House Bumping,” “Catch Me Out” and “Drippin’ Aura” have been featured in various ways, including on sites such as MTV.com, Thisis50, Itsbizkit, Youheardthatnew, and more. 

“My music is a reflection of who I am, what I’ve been through,, and my growth from hustler to business entrepreneur,” he said. “I hope people can see my story and know that it can motivate them to help them through anything. You can come from nothing and make something for yourself. That’s the type of message I’m bringing through my music. When you feel like you need to be pumped up, my music can motivate you in your day.”

I kept seeing the kids on my block needing direction, so I’m just trying to creative platform to put the kids on my block in a position where they can be doing something constructive and be successful,” Hollyhood Bugz explained. “I’ve taken a lot of trips around the world and the kids see that. I feel like its something that the world should hear though too. After I went to jail and stuff like that, the fact that I became a success out here despite the troubled beginnings shows the youth they can do the same thing too. So this is way deeper than rap.” Inspired by the philanthropic nature of Jay-Z, Hollyhood Bugz draws inspiration from his fellow Brooklyn native that made it out and found ways to transform his community. “I’m inspired by Jay-Z’s music because he’s from Brooklyn in the projects and for him to be where he is now, that inspires me overall with my circumstances.

We put them on a fire beat and we just showing our lyrical progression.

Bobby Shmurda Pleads Not Guilty

Up-and-coming rapper Bobby Shmurda appeared in a New York City court on Thursday (Dec. 18) to face charges he moonlighted as a gun-toting member of a street gang that was behind several shootings, one fatal, during turf wars over drug trafficking.

Shmurda (real name: Ackquille Pollard) pleaded not guilty and was ordered held on $2 million bail at a hearing in state Supreme Court in Manhattan.

Bobby Shmurda Arrested After Long-Term NYPD Investigation

The Brooklyn-born Pollard is best known for the hit song “Hot Boy.” He also put out a music video that popularized a dance craze called the “Shmoney dance,” and reportedly signed a lucrative record deal.

His attorney, Howard Greenberg, said his client had been falsely accused.

“Does it make sense that he would resort to committing crimes when he has the world in the palm of his hand?” the lawyer said outside court. “It’s ridiculous.”

Police arrested Pollard on conspiracy, reckless endangerment and gun possession on Wednesday after he left a recording studio near Radio City Music Hall in midtown Manhattan. Police found two handguns and a small amount of crack cocaine in a car in which he was riding, authorities said.

Anatomy of a Hit: How Bobby Shmurda’s ‘Hot Boy’ Came to Life

An indictment naming Pollard charges more than 15 defendants with a variety of crimes including murder, attempted murder, assault and drug dealing. Police seized 21 guns during the investigation, 10 of them while making arrests on Wednesday.

The court papers allege that Pollard fired a gun toward a crowd of people outside a barber shop in Brooklyn earlier this year. They also say he was present last year during a confrontation between rival drug gangs outside a Brooklyn courthouse where shots were fired.

The evidence includes several recorded phone conversations, including some between Pollard and gang members serving time on Rikers Island, the indictment says. The gang used code words, referring to firearms as “tone” and “socks,” narcotics as “crills,” and shootings as “sun tan,” it says.

During a conversation on April 28, Pollard bragged, “I am two socks Bobby right now,” the indictment says.

A “Hot Boy” video posted on YouTube in August has been viewed tens of millions of times, and Pollard performed the song for a national television audience this month on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“My music is straight facts,” Pollard recently told New York magazine. “There are a lot of gangsters in my ‘hood.”

Pollard’s criminal history included two arrests for gun and drug possession, authorities said.

Wrongfully Imprisoned Man

A Brooklyn man who was freed from jail in April after spending 25 years in prison for a crime he did not commit plans to sue New York City for $162 million. Jonathan Fleming, 51, was sentenced to 25 years to life for the 1989 murder of Darryl Rush. Fleming, who insisted that he was in Orlando, Fla., at the time, was released after Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson‘s Conviction Review Unit learned that police coerced false testimony out of a crack addict in exchange for a deal.

By filing what’s called a notice of claim, Jonathan Fleming has made a first move toward suing the city over case that put him in prison for nearly 25 years. He was freed and his conviction dismissed in April after the Brooklyn district attorney’s office said it now agrees he had a valid alibi. According to the Associated Press, the city comptroller’s office offered no comment on the matter as of yesterday.

Gang Leader Sentenced To 20 Years


Devon “D-Bloc” Rodney, a former leader of the violent Brooklyn street gang “Six Tre Outlaw Gangsta Disciples Folk Nation,” was sentenced to 20 years in prison at the federal courthouse in Brooklyn, New York. It’s the FBI’s latest success in its campaign against America’s violent street gangs. A campaign with no end in sight.

As leader of the Six Tre set of the Folk Nation, a nationwide gang originating from Chicago that is now active in several U.S. cities and prisons, Rodney was eager to make his presence felt and establish dominance over the area’s criminal activity. Like most young gang leaders, though, he wasn’t exactly running a professional operation. It was violent and in your face.

They also targeted individual robbery victims, whom they lured to secluded areas in Brooklyn, via Internet advertisements on Craigslist, and then robbed at gunpoint. Empowered by the successful robberies, Rodney began ordering his underlings to attack rivals and enemies. The gang was eventually charged with four murders, three attempted murders, and two assaults. But as with most street gang violence, it often ended up hurting innocents more than the intended targets.

Spike Lee Rants Off

+Spike Lee has been heard on audio ranting off in Brooklyn. Speaking Tuesday night in Brooklyn, blocks away from his company headquarters and his father’s apartment, Spike Lee went off on how the neighborhood has changed.

The filmmaker, wearing a Knicks beanie, orange socks, blue Nikes, and “Defend Brooklyn” hoodie, was at Pratt Institute for a lecture in honor of African American History Month, surrounded by locals, when he was nearly asked a question about “the other side” of the gentrification debate.

“Let me just kill you right now,” Lee interrupted, “because there was some bullshit article in the New York Times saying ‘the good of gentrification.’” “I don’t believe that,” said Lee. And for the next seven minutes he explained, with passion, humor, and a fair amount of f-words.

Irv Gotti Talks Beef Between Jay-Z and 2Pac

 

2Pac was attempting to ignite total warfare against The Notorious B.I.G. This means anyone that stood next to Biggie was liable to be hit with a direct shot. Per Irv Gotti, that was the case when it came to 2Pac's issue with Jay-Z

Irv made a recent appearance on Fat Joe's Instagram Live show, The Fat Joe Show, during which he touched on Jigga's tension with 2Pac. Gotti told Joey Crack that Hov got on 2Pac's bad side by having Biggie featured on "Brooklyn's Finest" from his debut album, Reasonable Doubt. On the track, Big makes a rare allusion to 2Pac by using his name in witty wordplay.

"Gotta go, Coolio mean it's gettin' Too Hot," Biggie raps after making a reference to "Who Shot Ya" earlier in the song. "If Fay' had twins, she'd probably have two Pacs/Get it? Tu... Pac's?" Per Gotti, allowing Biggie to get this off on his record put Hov in 2Pac's crosshairs.

Feds Say They Found $1.2M Of R. Kelly's Money


Federal prosecutors say a bank account controlled by R&B singer R. Kelly received at least $1.2 million last year and was created shortly after the singer was charged with sex crimes in Cook County Circuit Court.

They also say Kelly opened the bank account in the name of a nominee, and, in recorded jail calls, the singer appears to have directed people to contact that person “to receive payments indirectly from Kelly.”

That, in part, is what prosecutors say investigators were looking into when they unexpectedly wound up with bank records belonging to an attorney representing R. Kelly in federal court in Brooklyn. Kelly’s defense team accused the feds last month of an “unreasonable, intimidating, and harassing fishing expedition into the records of Mr. Kelly’s current counsel.”
