Donwill Don Cusack in High Fidelity
The 2000 classic hipster film High Fidelity wasn't exactly hip-hop, but Donwill (of Tanya Morgan) channels his inner Rob Gordon to deal with his quarter-life crisis, addressing his relationship woes through a clever concept album. Using the film's timeline, the MC creates a thoughtful and comical 16-track odyssey with Don Cusack in High Fidelity. He finds love on the soulful dedication "Laura's Song," runs down his "Top 5 Breakups" over a funky groove, and rebounds with the bouncy, synthesized electro-pop jam "Love Junkie." With equal doses of true-school hip-hop and R&B, Donwill fills out the cast with crisp production from Von Pea, Keelay & Zaire, and A-Plus, and vocal contributions from Opio, Peter Hadar, and Ragen Fykes, among others.
