AUDIO: “Black Jesus” – Donte Peace (prod. by Basquiat)

Donte Peace - Black Jesus

Donte Peace has carved out a nice lane for himself in the Seattle rap scene: a little offbeat and streetwise, his self-admitted “conscious” track “Black Jesus” is for nighttime riding and reflecting. Produced by Basquiat.

VIDEO: “God Body” – Donte Peace (dir. by Kenneth Wynn)

Seattle-based rapper Donte Peace built with Los Angeles-based director Kenneth Wynn for “God Body,” a joint from Peace’s recent Locals Only EP. Donte remains a refreshing and unpredictable MC, able to hold your attention with his lyrical movements that feel like stream-of-consciousness but also contain hidden complexities.

NEW MUSIC: Locals Only – Donte Peace

Donte Peace - Locals Only

Seattle rap upstart Donte Peace dropped this new EP, Locals Only, last month. According to the artist, there are two sides to this album’s story: Side A is “relaxed” and “chill,” and Side B is full of “bangers.” You be the judge.

VIDEO: “After Hours” – Donte Peace (dir. by Brian Tolliver)

Gratuitous and blood splattered, Donte Peace’s newest video, “After Hours”, channels the rapper’s dark side. It’s not for everybody and it’s certainly NSFW. Adot The God produced it and Brian Tolliver probably spilled fake blood all over his camera directing it.


NEW MUSIC: “Our Girlfriend” – Donte Peace (prod. by Adot The God)

Donte Peace - Our Girlfriend

Donte Peace takes a sinister victory lap after scooping some other dude’s lady on “Our Girlfriend”. It’s more of that possession-is-nine-tenths-of-the-law bullshit men indiscriminately apply to relationships with members of the opposite sex. When done with an even-handed dramatic flourish it can be interesting — subversive even. This doesn’t get there, though.

VIDEO: “Ill Hill” – Donte Peace (prod. by MaxTrax; dir. by Brian Tolliver)

Donte Peace traversed the back alleys, rooftops and even basement laundry rooms for the sharp black and white contrast for this clip, “Ill Hill”. Frequent collaborator MaxTrax on the beat and Brian Tolliver with the HD eye.


NEW MUSIC: “Cxptain Mxrgan” – Donte Peace (feat. Nacho Picasso; prod. by Maxtrax)

Captain Morgan - Donte Peace & Nacho Picasso

This song is not about Morgan Freeman. It’s not even really about Captain Morgan Rum. It’s mostly about those idle times that wrought devil’s playground hands, told to you by Donte Peace and Nacho Picasso. It’s hella grimy in the best possible way. With someone called Maxtrax on the beat.
