Reign(a): DonMonique

In this episode of Reign(a), rapper DonMonique teaches us how to roll a backwood.

Hailing from Brooklyn and the Bronx, Don began making a name for herself in New York City’s rap game with her “Kendall, Kylie, and Miley” single “Pilates.” Her debut EP, Thirst Trap, which dropped last year and features Danny Brown, is undeniably Brooklyn, paying homage to the Brooklynites who came before her and is reminiscent of an early version of a slightly-less vulgar Lil’ Kim. New York to the bone, she constantly reminds all those watching “not to talk shit” about her blunt rolling. Sit back and learn from the Don.
