“Off Tha’ Wall” Dom Kennedy

In our latest edition of Off Tha’ Wall, we kick it with West Coast player and artist Dom Kennedy . The Leimert Park lyricist has been killing the indie rap scene since 2008 and caught listeners’ attention in 2010 with his critically acclaimed mixtape From the Westside With Love. Known for his simple and laid back style, Dom’s swagger exudes West Coast vibes, with songs like “My Type of Party,” “Grindin,” and a personal favorite “Platinum Chanel” (Shout Jersey Jinx for putting me on!)

In this episode, Dom talks about “Boardwalk Empire” and “The Godfather,” and how he’s structuring his life and career to parallel Michael Corleone. He also explains Biggie and Tupac’s influence and the story behind his latest project Get Home Safely, which is about a boy who grew up watching the rise and fall of hip hop. He also speaks on wanting to work with Pharrell Williams, whom he praises as the “producer of the decade” and his love for Bobby Womack. Make sure you cop Get Home Safely, which is out now!
