Donnie Trumpet has been heavily involved in the thriving Chicago hip-hop scene over the past few years. He was a part of a group called Kids These Days alongside Vic Mensa, is a frequent collaborator with Chance The Rapper and tours with Chance’s Social Experiment band.
One year ago to the day Donnie Trumpet released his breakout album Surf, which has a star studded cast of guest features including Big Sean, J. Cole, Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, Jeremih, Janelle Monae, B.o.B., Raury, and many many more including a heavy involvement from Chance The Rapper throughout the project. Now Donnie has decided to bless us with an 11 minute long track “The First Time,” which according to Donnie is “a collection of unused Surf pieces, an ode to the era. Thank you to everyone who's still listening and growing with the music.” This new release is sounding great and features Chance, Ady Suleiman, J.P. Floyd, Dustin Green, and Cam Ob.
