One name that you will definitely hear this summer is that of Atlanta rapper Donnis. After being named as a member of XXL's Freshmen 10 for '10, a major label bidding war and a single on Fools Gold, the MC is set to release Fashionably Late on June 22. The up-and-coming rapper made his name with last year's Diary of an ATL Brave mixtape and has found his way onto various hip hop blogs. From there, Donnis continues to build his following with each video, single and mixtape he releases. Furthermore, he references things like Carl Winslow from Family Matters to Star Trek's USS Enterprise over some of the slickest, layered beats. He's a rapper that you will definitely hear about this year and is worth checking out. Check out a couple of his videos and a recent interview with DJ Reflex after the jump.
