"HipHop DX"

Donny Bravo hitting hard with a soft pitch.

We have a lot of rap songs on the subject of police brutality now days, and rightfully so. But with a lot of the same, it makes it harder for some to stand out. Not for Donny Bravo though. Donny Bravo does a good job at differentiation his song on police brutality with the rest because he delivers it extremely well with a softer sound, paired with high impact visuals. - Hiphopdx.com


"WorldStarHipHop"

The premiere single off of Bravo’s upcoming mixtape, “The Composition,” discusses police brutality, racial profiling, and other timely subject matters. Producer @mistercrowe who collaborated with Bravo on 3 of the records for his project, provided the ambient sound for “Police Man”. It is a departure from his earlier work, which focused more on parties and turning up. “I just wanted to give people something they could love musically, but also something they relate to. This is the music that really touches people.” Check out this and more of Bravo’s upcoming music on his SoundCloud! or his website. - WorldStarHipHop.com


"HipHopWIred"

With his debut album Hy!£UN35 just a little over a month away, Young Thug opts to drop “Thug” from his moniker to act “Young” for a second and have fun with his latest visuals off a cut from his his mixtape, The Barter 6. On “With That” the ATLien incorporates the use of the old school NBA JAM big head look and places it on his and his peoples persons while they ball on the streets of the A.
MURS meanwhile borrows a melody from the legendary Biz Markie to craft his latest offering, “The Worst.” The LA emcee uses rhyme pattersns from Biz’s “Just A Friend” to pay homage to the Clown Prince of Hip-Hop while kicking a cautionary tale of having a side piece getting out of pocket while being in a committed relationship. Expect Tyga on a homemade remix in the near future.
Check out the rest of today’s releases which include work from Consequence, Donny Bravo, and more. - HipHopWired.com

Bio

"It never gets old" - a phrase that creeps out of a hung over but seemingly focused voice,looking out of a Las Vegas hotel suite at the Bellagio. The voice is none other than that ofHip-Hop Artist, writer and Producer Donovan "Donny Bravo" Brown.

"It's always a dilemma for me because I identify as a socially conscious person, how could I not? Look at all the injustices in the world and all the shit going on. But at the same tokenI'm here in Vegas about to watch the Mayweather fight. I'm blessed man, for real"

As with anything in life, Bravo says, "it's about balance". That balance is reflected in his latest project "The Composition" which he feels is a comprehensive musical collection of everything that he has experienced since his earlier effort, "Bravos World".“I've been influenced by a lot and grown a lot over the last few years", he utters. But I've never had what you would consider a "regular" life experience.” 

He's right.

Born in Los Angeles, Donny was literally one of the last 80's babies to make he cut.(11/24/89). His father has an accomplished background in medicine and politics and his mother is a practicing attorney. The family moved to Bermuda and shortly thereafter battled the struggle of divorce. Donny remained in Bermuda until the age of 12 when he moved to the metro Detroit area, and then took his talents to Howard University in DC. He now resides in Los Angeles, once again.

"I guess it's all full circle for me" Bravo says. Wherever he went there was one constant; the music. "It definitely made me a more well rounded and understanding person living in all of those places growing up, and it also gave me a variety of musical experiences.

“I grew up listening to everything from Bounty Killa to Michael Jackson and Tupac. I loved every kind of music but it always seemed like hip-hop spoke to me the most"

Some would wonder why a college educated entrepreneur and child of such "good stock"would choose a career in rap music, but for Donny it's simple. "It's just what I love to do. I want to change the way my generation thinks and I believe that's needed right now. But it doesn't mean we can't have fun"

When asked to describe his most current sound, He explains it as "An easy listen, complete with catchy melodies, great production, and yes, lyricism"Be on the lookout for his first single "Police Man" and subsequent song releases shortly thereafter.
