I don’t think I will ever get the beat from Donte Fameus’ latest track out of my mind, it’s almost certainly sticking with me for life. If you could imagine an acid trip at a Spanish fairground, you’d get close to imagining the experimental beat that Donte’ Fameus has created for his debut Hip Hop Rap track. What U Need was released in April 2017 as one of the standout tracks from Donte’s latest album Blak Gold. I have to bow down to Donte’s ingenuity in creating his beat which I can fully assure you you’ve heard nothing remotely similar to ever before. Whilst I’m glad that Donte’ was able to create something as fresh as it comes, I couldn’t help but feel the beat detracted from his Rap delivery. His smooth lyrical delivery ran with such charisma yet the slightly mind warping Mariachi band beat stole the show.
Check out What U Need on SoundCloud along with the rest of the tracks from Donte’ Fameus’ debut album Blak Gold, on which each track is slightly more absurd than the last, and it’s glorious.
