Donnie Trumpet Remixes D.R.A.M.'s "$" And It's Beautiful

Six months (hell, six weeks) ago you might have wondered who Virginia rapper D.R.A.M. was. 

But, almost five months after he released his debut EP #1Epic, Drake slid onto D.R.A.M.'s "Cha Cha" last week and twisted it into one of his huge surprise tracks, "Hotline Bling." Last month, D.R.A.M. also got some solo spotlight on Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment's stupidly excellent album Surf, spearheaded by the great Chance The Rapper. And yesterday, Donnie Trumpet jumped on D.R.A.M.'s own single, "$," to add those big, lush horns that make any song go from good to very, very good and potentially tearjerking.

Already a downtempo, piano-led jam, Donnie Trumpet's huge horn section moves "$" into an epic space I don't think it would have reached otherwise. Once again, Donnie saves the summer.
