Donnis Sets Out on ‘Fashionably Late’ Tour
After Donnis earned accolades as one of XXL’s Freshmen Top 10, the rap upstart planted himself in hip-hop circles and earned the respect of critics and fans alike. Now, the Atlanta native is setting out on a 15-city national tour.
The rapper, known for his well-kept attire, is fresh off the creation of his ‘Fashionably Late Mixtape’ — a collection of 16 tracks supported by production from the likes of Needlz and Calvo Da Gr8, among others, and collaborations from Colin Munroe and Tony Williams. The effort will serve as the basis of the tour, which has since landed in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Columbus, Ohio; and Detroit. Donnis joins newcomers Chiddy Bang-comprised of rapper Chiddy and his producer, Xaphoon Jones-on each stop.
Each date sets as a countdown to the release of the ‘Gone’ creator’s debut album, ‘Fashionably Late,’ which will be distributed by Atlantic Records in September. Audiences unfamiliar with Donnis’ tracks, such as ‘Tonight’ and ‘Lightning,’ should download the rapper’s DJ Ill Will, Clinton Sparks and DJ Rockstar-assisted mixtape here.
