Dom 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. Never heard of him yet? thats because he’s GOOD. They don’t play GOOD hip hop on the radio.
Back in 1995 I was just a little nerdy asian kid living in Lemoore. I spent most of my days inside playing a game called Chrono Trigger on the SNES. Chrono is a fantasy role-playing game based around time travel. The main character, Crono, has a series of misadventures that throw him and his two lady friends into a grim, dark future. There, they learn about a parasitic alien life form named “Lavos”…Do I really have to describe the game to you? If your on this blog, chances are your just as big a geek then I am about the game.
I’ve probably played and beat the game hundreds of times so you can imagine me going ape shit when I heard Dom Kennedy’s track for the first time. Click the jumps below to hear what im talking about.
