Stream Dom Kennedy's Album 'Los Angeles Is Not for Sale, Vol. 1'
Dom Kennedy reps the City of Angels on his latest album, Los Angeles Is Not For Sale Vol. 1.
With 15 laid-back Left Coast anthems, DK provides a soundtrack for his hometown and his home state. “California is for gangsters,” raps Kennedy on “California.” “Y’all out of town ni**as just don’t understand / We don’t got the same mindset or the same plans.”
Featuring appearances by Troy Nōka, Niko G4, Ricky Hill, and P-Lo, the project drops just weeks after Dom’s Half-a-Mil EP, which he released in conjunction with Hit-Boy.
This ode to the City of L.A. makes sense for Dom, who’s often shared his love for the city. “I was just a regular kid in L.A.,” he told Hot 97 last year. “I loved rap because I grew up in the times of–I’m a black kid in America. Wasn’t nothing special. Everybody could rap a little bit. So, at that time, if you would’ve came around and you said you was a rapper, I would’ve had something better than you. But that wouldn’t mean I was a rapper. I never considered myself a rapper…I started making music cause I didn’t like no music that was out. I didn’t hear no L.A. music. So, I put L.A. in the music industry.”
