On May 25th 1997 Donnie was born in Brooklyn. In a neighborhood most people know as East Williamsburg. WE like to call it Bushwick. Although Brooklyn has played a huge part in Donnie's life Ridgewood is truly his home. Certainly it's well known everyone has their own demons and personal problems. Donnie R found his outlet of writing his way through his adversities since the age of 8 years old. Only writing what he had knew to be real and personal. If no genuine emotions were to be conveyed through his words than what value did it hold... none that he would speak.
