Dom Kennedy reps the west coast with his simple yet narrative style of lyrics and delivery. The rapper originally born Dominc Hunn has released 5 independent mixed tapes, and his first commercial studio album From the Westside With Love II dropped in 2011. Along with Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q, Dom Kennedy is helping redefine the West Coast hip-hop scene.
Kennedy’s most recent works, Get Home Safely, was released in October of last year. The album includes tracks featuring Skeme, Nipsey Hussle, Teeflii and Krondon. The top single from the album is probably “Still Callin,” but we also recommend checking out “All Girl Crazy” and “A Intermission for Watts.” “Most underrated rapper ever,” “great storyteller” and “California’s best kept secret” are all phrases being used to describe Dom Kennedy. XXL Magazine said this about Kennedy’s most recent work:
“What makes Dom a master of words is his ability to take you through the common man struggle and not have it wear you down…The Left Coast natives ability to transition from light hearted stuff to serious content with ease gives this album great replay value and surprising depth.”
Dome Kennedy will be performing in the northwest March 2 at The Showbox in Seattle and the WOW Hall in Eugene. Tune-in today (2./) for a chance to win tickets to the Seattle show!
