Dom Kennedy’s mood music has Los Angeles pumping through its veins. His records have become a staple in my quest to live life in a perpetual state of turning down.
Dom Kennedy is made for riding slow. From “Daddy”, the neck snapping opener, to “2 Bad” the record simply simmers. There’s moments of introspection and run of the mill brag raps, but Dom keeps himself centered by allowing his surroundings to channel through his art. To live and die in LA.
The new crop of west coast giants have the legends of twenty-five years ago in their souls. Kendrick, The Game, Nipsey, Schoolboy…N.W.A for the internet era. Dom seems right at home as our very own Warren 2K-G.
