donSMITH Premieres New Album "Don't Ask Me Where I'm From"

donSMITH dropped a fresh new single- "Table" (featuring Radamiz) from his new album and it's streaming everywhere now. This Harlem born rapper is on the rise with some of the funkiest beats and rhymes from inside the reality of black and brown culture today. New York hip hop hasn't been this dope since RZA put a foot print in the New York City rap game. donSMITH continues that legacy in a whole new and invigorating way. The full length album ("Don't Ask Me Where I'm From") has that dark, raw and tripped out NYC tone, filled with ambient sound effects and movie soundtrack backdrop-beats in the style of the underground poetry of the city that never sleeps.

donSMITH compiled and masterminded the perfect soundtrack to these Manhattan streets and hypnotic times with vividly agile narratives and razor-sharp lyrics and grooves.  

"Don't Ask Me Where I'm From" is now available on Spotify, YouTube, Amazon, Apple Music and all the major services.

With limited features from east coast artists like PayDay signee Radamiz, and D.C. 's quickly rising emcee Ankhlejohn, donSMITH proclaims his cultural pride and geographical commitment, especially at the hands of gentrification.

On additional tracks like “Piragua” & “NYCHA”, donSMITH is boldly emphasizing a central theme: for us, by us, while records like “donDADA” & “All I Got” give praise to the family and women birthed in the culture of uptown, New York City. 

This album acts as the centerpiece to donSMITH's soulful and politically charged duel EP’s “Dear Culture” & “Postscript", circling back to a central theme: “for us, by us”.
