Donny Goines: The Breakfast Club

05/19/2009

 

To say this moment hasn’t been a “long time coming” for Bronx MC, Donny Goines, would be short changing the adversity and hardships he experienced, just throughout the past decade. After a stint in the military, Goines life began to spiral out of control with several encounters with law enforcement, until an appearance on Jay-Z’s “Fade To Black” DVD encouraged him to pursue rapping full-time. Fast forward to May 19, Goines finds himself releasing his sophomore album, The Breakfast Club, on the same day as hip-hop legends Eminem, Method Man and Redman and Busta Rhymes. Naming the album after after one of his favorite movies from the 1980’s, the theme looks to be the polar opposite of his first LP, the deep and dark A Minute After Midnight, with Goines showcasing a more relaxed and fun side of himself.

Goines’ buzz has been increasing by the day with his feature in XXL and appearances on radio shows, most recently with Peter Rosenberg. Even with the added attention, one of the major beliefs Goines has remained steadfast with has been his independent spirit.  Unlike the other big name albums scheduled to drop, as a sign of appreciation for not only the music, but his fans as well, The Breakfast Club has been released as a free download with features from Mistah FAB, Termanology, Tanya Morgan, Skyzoo and Planet Asia and production from Dame Grease and Statik Selektah.

“We in a recession, so it’s free. You don’t have to cop anything, just go to a blog or website and download it,” said Goines.

With that in mind, follow his lead and click the link below. The above video is an intro he shot at the Red Studio in Harlem exclusively for KarenCivil.com.
