“Let the music find you.” – Dom Kennedy
After giving this mixtape a couple listens, and reading Dom's interviews and insights into the direction for his music this time around, I'm not impressed. The push to find his own sound within the spectrum of West Coast rap didn't grab my attention.
When one makes music for a specific demographic, they are limiting their audience. They are setting a (Maximum Compacity) for the amount of listeners/fans/
customers they will be allotted.
As a business person, why would you do that?.
As an ARTIST... why would you do that?. Art/Music is a binding force for the world... And at the end of the day, no one cares about “West coast shit!” or where you're from. We just wanna hear good music. I don't want to hear someone trying to sound different.
