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?

VISUALS: ASAP Rocky ft. SchoolBoy Q – Brand New Guy (HATERZ REVIEW)

YES! Our favorite track off LiveLongASAP gets the video treatment! … .. Unfortunately, we expected more. Directed by ASAP and ICU, it felt rushed and wasn’t creative at all. Liked the idea of them filming on both coasts in each rapper’s ‘hood’, but it fell short. After the videos for previous A$AP tracks, we thought this would be filmed like the street anthem it was … instead it was boring, simple scenes cut together. Oh well, you can’t hit a home run every time you come to the plate (or can you?)

If anymore tracks from the mixtape get visuals, we would like to see “Keep It G” or “Get Lit.” What about you guys?
