Imagine growing up as the son of an international rap icon. Life would essentially play out like the lyrics of Drake’s “Fake Love” - people transparently trying to big you up and ride with you for the fame. Imagine then having to not only deal with that fakery on the daily, but also carve out your own identity distinct from what people expect from you? That’s exactly what 16-year-old Domani has conjured up on his new project The Constellation.
The baby-faced prodigy is the son of none other than Atlanta kingpin T.I - yet his lyricism, beat-selection and flow are in a totally different mould than his father’s. The Constellation is laced with imagery, understanding and bars that sound like the product of someone way beyond his tender age. There are tracks like “Royalty” that punctually ring out as an empowering anthem for women, when many of his peers will be listening to rappers whose lyrics speak disparagingly towards women. Then there's silky songs like “Paris,” which offer life advice with vivid flowing, imagery via the newcomer’s slick, Southern drawls. It's an ambitious debut from Domani, and that's what makes it such compelling listening.
Featuring appearances from London Jae of Bankroll Mafia and Zonnique, we are excited to premiere The Constellation, which establishes Domani as both an individual and a rapper well and truly on an astronomical ascension phase. Speaking on the project, Domani said "I’m getting all the stars aligned so people can see that I’m a true artist" - with the being said check out Domani's celestial debut mixtape below.
