Artist: Dom Kennedy
Release Date: 2009
Most know the Leimert Park rep for his 2010 release From the Westside with Love, however, the streets of L.A. mark Dom's arrival with the release of Future Street/Drug Sounds, his buzz-worthy second project. From hard-hitting releases like the Chuck Inglish-produced "Hard Work" and the street anthem "Menace Beach" to the BJ the Chicago Kid-assisted "Of All Time," Dom set out to exhibit his versatility with the follow-up to his debut 25th Hour, and succeeded. The project also laid the foundation for more experimental projects to come, like the L.A. Leakers-hosted Best After Bobby and, later, The Original Dom Kennedy.
