Kennedy's Get Home Safely Review
The South Central rapper
released his second studio album titled 'Get Home Safely' on October
15th, after the success of his last project, the street
classic 'Yellow Album', as well as touring and expanding his OPM
movement. Earlier this year, Dominic Hunn aka Dom Kennedy announced
that his next project would be his second studio album titled, Get
Home Safely, promising the best quality music you'd hear from him to
date. Kennedy also stated that if you've never been introduced to his
music prior to this album, it's a great way to become familiar with
his repertoire.

It's safe to say that Dom
Kennedy has had his schedule busy this year, performing at some of
the biggest Hip-Hop festivals such as Paid Dues and Rock the Bells
along with other west coast acts such as Nipsey Hussle and Black
Hippie to name a few. Not to mention that the album would be released
under his own label “Other People's Money” keeping his time
occupied, the scheduling might have contributed to do with the album
not being able to meet several release dates. Originally scheduled
for a summer release, in August, GHS was delayed as Kennedy announced
for an October 1st date which was later pushed back,
finally settling for an October 15th release.
Get Home Safely” is
a 16 track project not including the two tracks that accompany the
deluxe version of the album, from the get-go the album starts off
with the song “Let's Be Friends”, which he premiered at this
year's Paid Dues in Devore, CA, (which I was personally able to
witness having been in attendance). The following four tracks, “17”,
“All Girl Crazy”, “After School” and “If It Don't Make
Money” are instant classics to my ears, mainly because they're
derivative of his independent street albums. Along with paying homage
to his South Central stomping grounds as well as including the
playboy rap, Dom Kennedy had been quoted to say that this album would
be a blend of his old style along with a new sound.
Get Home Safely is a good
album for those who want to hear a new type of sound coming out of
Los Angeles that doesn't include gangsta rap, then this album is the
product to send you on your way to enlightenment. I give this album
my stamp of approval, enjoy.
Be Safe
Sincerely, Miguel
