A few weeks after recently re-releasing their classic debut, Brooklynati, on vinyl for the first time ever, it’s only right that for Donwill’s HipNOTT Record’s debut, he teams up with his Tanya Morgan cohort Von Pea to tap into a bit of that group chemistry for himself. The duo locked in to create One Word No Space, which serves as the MC’s first full-length solo-outing since Don Cusack In High Fidelity (2010).
Von pea’s signature ‘bat crack’ sound provides an ample bed of hard drums and emotive loops for Don to bare his soul over and formally reintroduce himself. One Word No Space is a jarring jaunt with high replay value that also features collaborations with Lessondary spitters such as Paul Barman, IIyas, Rob Cave, Von Pea and Quelle Chris, who guest features on the projects first single “Screens,” which was exclusively premiered today by HipHopDx.
“I have been talking about doing an album solely produced by Von Pea since before Moonlighting. I don’t know why it took me this long. You know that meme of the dude walking with his girl and looking at another girl? That was me with Von’s beats” Donwill quipped.
“One Word No Space is great album. It’s one of the things that I’m most proud of to this day. It’s an album about identity and it deals with how I see myself. It’s a pretty personal body of work. Whereas Don Cusack focused on romantic relationships this one focuses on my relationship with myself. It’s like my twitter timeline set to music. It’s great. Trust me.”
