Dom Kennedy * Yellow Album Review

Click to visit the original post
One of my favorite projects of the year so far.
This mixtape is so smooth. So player … excuse me “playa” … (before y’all fools think I’m not hip). It simply sounds like Summer and, well … shit … it is Summer (good timing Dom). My Type Of Party is the anthem for a lot of folks life right now, and I don’t blame ‘em. When I first heard it I hit the mean slow bounce …

Something should be said for the dope production on this tape. The names might not catch your eye initially, but the production is something special.  DrewByrd (“1:25″ “Gold Alpinas” feat. Rick Ross , what up OPM) and DJ Dahi (My Type Of Party, P + H) did some damage, while Chase N Cashe (salute Surf Club) produced the banger “We Ball” featuring Kendrick Lamar. Dom got shown some love. He also knew what he was doing by making a good portion of his subject matter about the ladies … touche’.

Dom got this one right. He even threw in two double songs (please check PG Click and listen to the whole song, the first part is pretty meh though, you’ve been warned). If I get a chance, I want to ask him two questions. One. Why is this sh*t so player .. … playa? …  and two .. What’s next?
