Dom Kennedy - Locals Only

Lately I have been listening to a lot of West coast Cali hip hop. This would include Dom Kennedy. Up to date, From the Westside With Love has been my favourite production piece by him. It came out in the Summer of 2010. It's a very mellow mixtape where you can easily listen from start to finish. Now whenever I listen to it, it has me reminiscing of the Summer. My favourite song on the tape was "Locals Only'. It samples Yasunori Mitsuda's "Secret of the Forest" from Chrono Trigger. I never played this game, but I do spend time listening to music from RPG's that led me to it. It's quite geeky, but I think it made me like the song so much more.

The video itself is well made too. Maybe more so because I have been fooling around with iMovie and have been struggling. I like the addition of the piano at the beginning and the interlude scene.  Give this a listening to, and if you enjoy this than I think you will entire the entire mixtape.

Love the North
