ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Done Wright Talks HardWork and Single, 'Pigeon Toe' Feat. Gudda Gudda


When hip hip first started, besides it being a form of music expression that told the story of the untold, it was a form of rebellion, an opportunity for young black free speech. In the 1980s, early rap groups like Public Enemy said "Fight the Power, N.W.A., said "F*ck tha Police" and A Tribe Called Quest sang "We the People". Rap was political as it shed light on the black experience. Over time, anything positive got labeled as conscious rap, and the money shifted to "gangsta rap".  Fast forward 35 years, and hip hop music has become diverse genre, but its always refreshing to hear a rapper who has that essence of the core of classic rap. 

Done Wright is a rapper who grew up listening to lyrical greats like Rakim, Kool G. Rap, Nas, B.I.G., Jay-Z.  These lyrical figures influenced him to become a rap artist. His witty style and thought provoking bars, can be heard on his new single, Pigeon Toe Feat. Gudda Gudda. While Wright's lyrics are far from conscious, (on the track, he raps, "just tryna find a redbone that's pigeon toed. Tell me what its hittin fo', we gon' hit the liquor store") his East Coast vibe and frank, matter of fact approach to his lyrical content tell a story just as important. Pretty is what you make it, and everything in life ain't perfect. But that message unifies and resonates with many listeners. 

Wright, who also produces, has a laid back delivery that makes his flow all the more dope. He gives you just enough to keep the vibe going. There's plenty of energy in the message. Pigeon Toe is available on Spotify and other major streaming platforms. 

"Haters mean muggin', but I ain't even trippin tho...

Done Wright was born 
David Wright Jr. in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. In 1985, his parents moved to the South Jamaica section of Queens where he was raised. Growing up in “South Side” Jamaica, Queens he lost many of his friends to the street life and the prison system. In 2009 he began pursuing a musical career and founded his own record label, HardWork Entertainment. The first official release was his debut EP "Penny 2 A Million" which was produced exclusively by Sha Skillz. After minimal success of his first release, the two parted ways to focus on their own musical endeavors.

With consistency being one of his strengths, Done Wright continued his path to success in 2012 with his “Supply Work, Demand Respect” series. The series has featured collaborations from Tony Yayo, Tek (Of Smif-N-Wessun), GLC to name a few. Today, his production is featured on his songs with Bookkeeper141 as Green Regime.

Look out for Done Wright's future collaborations with 38 Spesh, Max B, and Benny The Butcher.
