Atlantic Records has announced the signing of their new artist Donnis who has released the details of his first-ever US tour. The rising rapper will be among the multi-artist hip-hop bill entitled the “Crowd Control Tour,” also featuring Kidz In The Hall, 88-Keys and Izza Kizza. The 16-city trek kicked off on Sunday, February 28th at New York City’s Highline Ballroom, with dates then continuing through early April.
Donnis is quickly making a name as one of the most talented new stars on the Southern hip-hop scene. The Georgia-based MC first attracted attention last year with 10.Deep’s breakout mixtape, “DIARY OF AN ATL BRAVE,” and has since scored major appeal amongst listeners with his smoothed out rap anthem, “Gone” (released on revered DJ/Producer A-trak’s Brooklyn based Fool’s Gold Records). “Donnis is a truly original, compelling new voice on the hip-hop landscape, and we pulled out all the stops to bring him into the Atlantic family. His creativity and lyrical flow are hugely impressive, and the Diary of an ATL Brave mixtape was a captivating introduction to this major talent. Now that we’ve sealed the deal, we’re looking forward to watching Donnis take it to the next level” proclaimed Atlantic Records Chairman and CEO Craig Kallman.
