Donte Peace – D.R.U.G.S. [Audio]


“D.R.U.G.S.” is the gripping, powerful new single from the Seattle-based artist Donte Peace, who brilliantly captures the desire to turn to substances as a means of escaping the harsh realities of life. For some, chemical dependency is the only way to reduce the anxiety and grief that comes with police brutality, poverty, and other issues facing his community. The track title actually stands for “Do Right Under God’s Sight,” a message that may seem preachy at first but is actually handled with down-to-earth, thoughtful commentary from Peace. He’s essentially looking to the sky throughout his verses as a means for finding, well, peace in a community ravaged by senseless death and crime. He also admits that, sometimes, drugs are the only out, the only way to free one’s mind of the pain. Driving that mindset of hazy escapism is the atmospheric instrumental on “D.R.U.G.S.”, which was produced by Donte’s frequent collaborator, Maxtrax. Together, they crafted an eerie, cinematic track that’ll leave a lasting impact.

“D.R.U.G.S.,” which is now available for stream, is not affiliated with any forthcoming projects from Peace. And if you happen to be in the Seattle area, be sure to catch Peace’s upcoming performance at the Nectar Lounge on June 14, where’ll be opening up for Snow Tha Product.
