Although born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Donnis Crump didn’t start officially rapping until he was stationed in Japan while on duty with the Army. Donnis, 25, spent four years in the U.S Air Force, where his military colleagues saw promise in his skill and urged him to perform at local clubs. Soon after he decided to finally pursue a career in the rap industry.
He performed at the “Bay to the A” concert in Anaheim, CA in early 2007 featuring rap’s heavy hitters Lil’ Jon, T-Pain and Rick Ross. A globetrotter whose been rapping and writing verses for years, Donnis has traveled to Thailand and South America and lived in Colorado, before making rap his full-time livelihood. Crump actually began his career in Atlanta. The young artist started creating rhymes when he was only 9 years old.
Networking with DJ Masterkey who Donnis describes as Tokyo’s Funkmaster Flex, he landed a gig opening for Chingy. Shows with T.I. and 112 soon followed.
After releasing a few lesser known mixtapes, Donnis linked up with producers J.U.S.T.I.C.E. and Needlz to record his breakout mixtape Diary Of An ATL Brave, which contained his breakthrough track ‘Gone’ that gave him radio play and hype. The rapper's success went beyond instant blogosphere love, which he also achieved, because in early 2010 he realized the dream of many young MCs when he inked a deal with a major label, Atlantic Records. According to an interview with the Source, Donnis instantly got to work on an EP, his debut, and several mixtapes, one of which is Fashionably Late. And it's not necessarily a typical prequel/prelude mixtape. Instead, it's a holdover project to keep listeners interested until his debut drops.
