donSMITH releases his brand new album!
Dont Ask Me Where Im From is the NEW soulful and culturally articulate full length from donSMITH.
Concise in length, the 30 minute album is entirely produced by Zoomo, a soul sampler buzzing amongst the underground and Peter Rosenbergs weekly real late night Hot 97 radio show.
The album is now available on Spotify, YouTube, Amazon, Apple Music and all the major services.
A track that exudes a heartfelt yearning for the truth to be forthright and prone within life, the synth-Americana track, imbued with a Goth-lite backbeat is a fresh reminder of James ongoing, and immense musical pedigree within the business.
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 and NYCHA, donSMITH is boldly emphasizing a central theme: for us, by us, while records like donDADA and 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 donSMITHs soulful and politically charged duel EPs Dear Culture and Postscript, circling back to a central theme: for us, by us.
donSMITH is a 27 year old Harlem-bred artist and storyteller, illustrating the harsh realities and triumphs of his black and brown culture. Initially a producer and musician, donSMITH began to focus on the lyrical aspect of music.
Eventually releasing his first EP, the Harlem emcee performed all over New York City, including The Knitting Factory, Bowery Electric, National Sawdust and more.
donSMITH strives to create art that reflects the beauty birthed by struggle, trials with finding god, and cultural evaporation.
Raw vulnerability and soulful storytelling are the backbone of donSMITHs message, aiming to breed hope and fellowship among listeners, no matter where they are from.
