Dom Kennedy, the Leimert Park Legend, had two big pieces of news for his fans over the last 24 hours. First came the news that Dom would be releasing the follow up to his 2011 release II: From the Westside with love with a new album Yellow Album. The announcement of the new album was incospicious and was actually made on twitter by @OPM1997.
That was then followed by the release of a new song “Why the Hell Not” which features Dom rhyming over a dope track produced by his frequent producer THC and recorded at The L.A.B.B.
Dom Kennedy graced the streets of Los Angeles in 2008 with the release of his debut project, titled 25th Hour. The Leimert Park native, born August 22, 1984, made a name for himself by promoting, distributing and, along with Jason Madison, co-producing the 25th Hour mix-tape. After receiving local and nationwide praise, Dom followed up in the spring of 2009 with the independent release of Future Street/Drug Sounds, an all-original collection that seized the attention of major labels, blogs and Hip Hop fans worldwide. In the fall of 2009, Dom teamed up with DJ Sour Milk of Power 106 and the Los Angeles Leakers to produce his third and most recent project, titled Best After Bobby. On March 25th, 2010 Dom released From The Westside, With Love a free download, that plays like a true studio album. This release would legitimize his fan base nation-wide, receiving over 65 thousand downloads.
