West coast native Dom Kennedy blessed us recently when he dropped his new project, The Yellow Album. Dom Kennedy’s laid back style really helps him create great summer time music. The Yellow Album is easy to listen to. The project is perfect to listen to in eighty degree weather while cruising down the street with your windows down.
The production on The Yellow Album was handled by THC, Fly Union, Chase N Cashe, Dj Dahi, Polyester, Drewbyrd, Noka, and J.Lbs. It also features guest verses by Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, Too Short, and Freddie Gibbs. Below are some of the stand-out tracks on the project:
3. We Ball (featuring Kendrick Lamar) – This Chase N Cashe produced track is slow head-nodding music where Dom addresses all the people who didn’t think he would make it. He takes this time to let them know how much he’s balling. Kendrick delivers a dope verse as usual.
4. My Type of Party – This is the lead single off of the project. It’s an ode to being young and partying with the opposite sex. DJ Dahi produced a smooth hypnotic beat for this laid back track. The hook is so damn catchy on this one!
6. Don’t Call Me (featuring Too Short) – This is the single man anthem off of the tape. In this track, Dom talks to a girl that fell in love with him when he was just looking for a good time – so the song is to tell her to stop calling him so much. Too Short fits perfectly on this song because avoiding women is his specialty.
8. Gold Alpinas (featuring Rick Ross) – Dom talks about the luxurious things that he could afford ever since he has become a successful rapper. He is saying that he can now afford things like expensive cars and expensive watches.
11. Hangin’ (featuring Freddie Gibbs) – This collaboration with Freddie Gibbs might be my favorite track off of the album. This song is so smooth. Dom talks about his friends that are going through different situations.
The Yellow Album is definitely worth a listen if you like cool and laid-back West Coast music. Tune in
