With the recent release of the Yellow Album, Dom Kennedy has secured his position as one of the best “new” artists. New is an unfair title considering he’s been putting in work since 08. I put together some of his best tracks along with features to get you up to speed. Download below.
Dom finally frees the first single from the highly anticipated Yellow Album. Now can we get a release date?
Before I start, yes I know it’s not march.
In my opinion, Hip-Hop is on its 3rd Generation. 1st Generation greats include: Rakim, Kool G. Rap, Big Daddy Kane. 2nd Generation Greats: Jay-Z, Biggie, Tupac, Nas, Eminem. Now who will be this generation’s best rapper?
Top 4 Seeds:
1. Lupe Fiasco (let’s forget about Lasers ok?)
4. J. Cole
Those trying to get in the tournament:
7. Big K.R.I.T.
9. Schoolboy Q
11. Killa Kyleon
12. Alley Boy
13. Danny Brown
15. King Mez
18. Iggy Azalea
19. Azealia Banks
20. Smoke DZA
21. Dom Kennedy
22. Nipsey Hu$$le
26. The Kid Daytona
27. Gilbere Forte
28. Vic Mensa
30. Casey Veggies
32. Earl Sweatshirt
33. Childish Gambino
34. Cyhi the Prince
36. A$AP Rocky
37. Action Bronson
Out of these 38, will come 32. Feel free to comment or add any names you feel that should be included (trust me, most of these names are suggestions, I don’t agree but added them for the sake of debate). Final bracket is coming in the last week of the month.
This album is shaping up to be reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally nice. #HnC at midnight
My favorite track from From West$ide, With Love II
Just like I did last year, I’m making a list of artists who will probably have breakout years in 2012. Also the most likely to make that XXL list that I never agree with.
1. Dom Kennedy
He was here last year. He was here year before last. And he’ll be here every year until he blows up. Sans Drake, he probably makes the best music in the game right now.
I get asked 1000x a day “what new are you listening to?’. As an advocate of spreading good music, it’s my duty to point people in the direction of good music. Just in case you haven’t noticed, I really don’t listen to commercial hip hop, so I’ll show you some new artist flying under the radar worth checking out.
