Dom’s Still Callin.

Dom Kennedy serves up some visuals to accompany the release of “Get Home Safely”. “Still Callin″ to me was the stand out track from this particular tape, so it’s only proper that it gets the full video treatment. I’ve said it many times before in my writing and I will continue to make sure that it is said. Dom Kennedy has next where the West Coast is concerned. Kennedy has one of the most layed back, graceful voices to lace a rap track in years and whether or not he stuns you with his lyrics you will no doubt leave a listening session with at least four phrases to raise your ego in the face of any situation. Dom is the kind of rapper who effortlessly laces beats in a manner that makes listening to his tape an absolute pleasure. If these record label folks don’t see it, then they continue to prove again and again that they’re blind and out of touch with the industry. Never mind a rushed and oblivious XXL review, Kennedy spits raps that seem to come as natural as Cali kids wearing flip-flop’s and socks. Not to mention the fact that Kennedy seems determined to make sure the only thing that leaves his camp are quality, completed projects. You don’t see random leaks and throw away tracks on off days. If there’s a method to this industry madness, they have the recipe.

The video is a continuation of Kennedy’s laid back approach. Simple but dramatic, the video is an entrance to a larger national stage, a statement of purpose. Hard work be payin’ off but only if you can manage to just be cool along the way.

About Jacington Caught in between the pulls of sub-culture movements and real life’s demands, A SDSU graduate, based in the illustrious state of California spends what free time he has obsessing over comics, vintage clothing shoes, and running a small blog when he sees fit. Thoroughly dedicated to having a good time whenever possible, Jacington is just as likely to be found at the top of a mountain as on a downtown San Diego street corner. At this point in the bio, I stop writing in the third person and proceed to keep it funky. Somewhere along the line, I managed to convince Twitch to give me a spot on the SSB team. It could prove to be tragic, or by some slim margin it could work out to be entertaining. Hopefully you check back and decide for yourself.
