If you’re from Southern California, then you’re quite familiar with one Dom Kennedy. He’s both vintage and futuristic West Coast hip hop; a sonically throwback style that has thrived throughout today’s quickstrike trends for years. After his last LP, 2013’s Get Home Safely, boasted features from DopeHouse mainstays Skeme, Nipsey Hussle and TeeFLii, Dom has returned with his highly anticipated summer-starting third studio album.
Eschewing features for most of the project, save for former Philly’s Most Wanted member Bonic and rising start Tish Hyman (on “2 Bad“), By Dom Kennedy comes in at a compact 37 minutes and 11 tracks, with production from DJ Dahi, Jake1ne & Swiss Hunger, J. LBS, Mike & Keys, and more.
