We’re currently witnessing Veno Da Don’s growth in artistry. The rapper manages to maintain the charisma of current-day hype tracks while intertwining the honest storytelling of his personal life journey.
D.O.A.R.N. samples James Bay’s Let It Go and illustrates the artist’s change of pace. The flow of confident punchlines is familiar to those heard on Dontober and Sorry Not Sober, but executed on a totally unexpected production. The EP’s intro proves that his rhyme style is loosely more versatile than before.
The rest of the project is much of the same. MAYHEM’s single, Split It, was Veno’s opportunity to share what he’s learned from his longterm hiatus in Atlanta, Georgia. Despite the brief move out of state, Veno stays true to his Indiana roots by bringing the popular style of Georgia rap back to his home team.
I come from Indiana that’s like coming off the bench
Now it’s my time Imma shine just look at the wrist
What I love most about Veno is his fresh approach to Indy’s music community. Yes, he’s strapped with confidence, but he’s continuously honing his craft through exposure to new experiences and new opportunities as an artist.
Listen to Mayhem on all streaming platforms now.
