Mixtape: Dom Kennedy – The Original Dom Kennedy

Dom Kennedy 500x500 Mixtape: Dom Kennedy – The Original Dom Kennedy

I’ve always liked and supported Dom Kennedy‘s music, mostly because he is from L.A., like me. Then I saw him in concert with Big Sean and Chip Tha Ripper. Now I’m an all-out fan. When I heard that he released a mixtape (practically) unannounced, I ran to a computer to check a few tracks out. Just from the ten minutes of listening, I knew this was going to be a kind mixtape. Dom can take it to that old school L.A sound, like he did on “The Homies” and then switch it up over a psychedelic type beat on tracks like “Goodbye”. He rounds off the tape with my personal favorite, a track called “CDC” that features Casey Veggies and cARTer.

Name start with a D/but I sound like a G on it.

One thing that caught my eye about this tape is the fact it only has two features. This really gives Dom a chance to shine and showcase his own skills, and that’s exactly what he does. Hit the jump for the track list and download link.

    Unannounced? He announced it a few days before he released it.

    I added the word “practically”. The point I think Green was trying to make was that most mixtapes are hyped up for months leading up to their release and that wasn’t the case with this one.

    Dom Kennedy is definitely one of my favorite artists right now, along with some other west coast artists. The west is really creating a great spot for themselves right now. Hopefully more people start to get put on to Dom’s work.

    That’s basically what I meant. I saw him twitter say something about it, but didn’t it was dropping so quickly. Not many artists announce a mixtape and then release within a week.
