Interview: Rising Stars #6 “Dom Kennedy”

Dom Kennedy Interview ‘Rising Stars’ #6

L.A. L.A. big city of dreams, the city of palm trees, barbecues, hot girls and bomb ass weed. Other than that, it’s the hometown of Leimart Park resident Dom Kennedy. Dom has been doing his thing for several years now on the mixtape scene, but has not really earned his accolades yet on the mainstream tip. Despite that, Dom has no intention of stopping his grind and is therefore gearing up a commercial album for all of his fans.

The album is called The Yellow Album, and is gonna be available for downloading June 21st. Some of you are probably already familiar with his first single “My Type Of Party” which is heavily on rotation right now. So if you love the classic Westcoast sound but with a new school twist, it’s inevitable for you to get the album. Being one of the front figures of the New West alongside people like Skeme, Nipsey Hussle, Casey Veggies, Pac Div, Fashawn, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolBoy Q and the rest of the TDE camp, Dom is definitely experiencing growth as an artist and it’s only a matter of time before the talented L.A. rapper is gonna break through.

We got the opportunity to interview Dom and we talked about various things concerning his new album, his sound, fashion, influences, his recent tour, his OpM company, his participation in one of the BET cyphers, XXL and many other things. If you love the Westcoast and the things that’s going on over there, it’s highly recommended that you check this interview out!

Special thanks to Max Robin

Interview: Rising Stars #5 “Stalley”

Der er gået lang tid siden i sidst har fået en Rising Star, men nu er vi kommet godt ind i det nye år og er derfor klar med en masse tiltag herunder vores efterhånden kendte skriftlige Rising Stars interviews. Denne gang bringer vi jer Rick Ross’ seneste signee til Maybach Music Group, nemlig Stalley. Stalley har haft et stort år med masser af gode udgivelser og velinstrueret videoer. Den ydmyg rapper fra Massillon, Ohio er en af de 12 rappere som vi på DDS spår til at have et gr8 år foran sig, og vi har dermed også udvalgt ham til vores Freshmen Class 2012.

Udover denne Freshmen listen har vi også udvalgt Stalley’s “Go On” video til den femte bedst instrueret video i 2012, da vi føler at han gang på gang laver nogle meget autentiske visualiseringer. Se den fulde liste her.

I interviewet snakker Stalley om alt fra hans deal med MMG til hans skæg, og vi vil have at i bruger dette interview som en appetizer til når Stalley en gang kommer til Danmark og vi får lov til at lave vores kendetegnsinterviews. Så guys, læs interviewet, bliv klogere omkring et interessant hip-hop navn og del det med jeres venner.

Interview: Rising Stars #4 “Jhené Aiko”

“Rising Stars” er stærkt tilbage med den kvinde i spillet som nok har den flotteste stemme. Ikke nok med det, er hun jo sygt smuk og heldigvis efter nogen par mails, fik jeg muligheden for at interviewe denne søde og gr8 griz.
