During the early to mid-20th Century, millions of Black people migrated north with the promise of jobs and the chance to see a new world of opportunity. In the 21st century, with urban overcrowding, dwindling opportunity and just the hustle and bustle, that trend has reversed and people from those northern population centers are moving back to the south.Planet Ill has been riding with Harlem emcee Donny Goines since almost the very beginning. After his Minute After Midnight album, we reviewed his Breakfast Club album almost 3 years to the week ago. It was one of the first records we reviewed here on Planet Ill, and it was aiiight, but not the raw. He took our advice to heart and came back with 20X, in another weight class.
We support the independent artist here at the Planet and our honest but real relationship with Donny is real evidence of that. I made my move south and when I learned he did, I decided to take the trip to the ATL to see what was going on with our brother. Gone is the concrete; in its place is a whole lot of trees, a hell of a view, the promise of business, the sting of betrayal, and the fresh start that migration can bring. He’s got a new company, Ink Different, a new outlook on life and a new diet. We bring you Donny Goines: Top of the World.
