“The lyrical slugger comes out swingin’ for the fences on the triumphant “Underdog,”... He racks up a few RBIs (raps batted in) on the Bun B-guested “Country Cool,” before knocking one out of the park with the aggressive “Over Do It.””

“Donnis: my dude DFOCIS who did “Over Do It”?. He was doing his thing and his career and I was like, Well, there’s nothing else to do, lets just go ahead and make these records. So I spent everyday making records ”

“Over Do It finds Donnis getting busy over an epic bassline by D. Focis, touching on his experiences with industry politics as well as spitting one of the illest defecation-related punchlines I’ve heard in some time. ”

“D.Focis is mostly known for his production work with major artists in Japan as well as artists in America like Nappy Roots, Bobby Creekwater, Donnis and many others..this is his 3rd release as an artist, but the 1st in America...He is from Detroit but now slits his time between Japan and Atlanta..”
