Hip Hop and R&B are two genres that have been blessed by many scintillating and stunning artists and ideas but none are as electrifying and unique as the notions and introspective conversations evoked by the enigmatic LaDonna. Her project “The Spiritual Gangsta Trapsoul” is an EP that marks the dawn of a new era of self-help that will echo through the ages. Inspired by the innuendos of the deep connection that music has with our state of mind and mental health, the EP allows us a window into finding the beauty and authenticity of affirmations and positive thought expressed in a very real and practical way!
The project is a one of a kind Hip Hop and R&B meditation experience that features some cold bars as well as soothing soft tones over some syncopated rhythms accentuated by melodic vocals. The songs are really a bridge to the gateway of self-discovery and putting mind over matter. The songs are a combination of affirmations and meditation and although the songs are filled with contrasting musical intonations they are all perfect anthems for a daily morning listen to prepare to be the best version of yourself or even to relax and recharge your batteries.
