Be Proud of Your Cloud

Meet Donnie.  I literally stumbled across  this artist with an “old” neo-soul.  His sound reminds me of Kindred the Family Soul, Lalah Hathway and other underrated artists in the neo-soul movement.  Donnie was born up the road in Lexington, KY so you gotta love that Bluegrass connection.

From his 2003 album The Colored Section, listen to Cloud 9 which I am calling the Ode to the Afro.

Happy to be nappy, I’m black and I’m proud
That I have been chosen to wear the conscious cloud
And I’m fine under cloud 9
