This past Saturday, California representative Dom Kennedy made his next stop in Atlanta for his, “Get Home Safely Tour”. The energy in this place was ridiculous as people poured in, packing out the Masquerade’s “Heaven” floor. Hosted by Fort Knox, anxious fans got to see opening headlining performances from artists such as Inglewood’s own Skeme, Atlanta’s own Two9, Will Brennan who also featured Miloh Smith and Scotty ATL.
Afterwards Dom Kennedy prepared to hit the stage in front of a wild up audience and once announced, the crowd literally went crazy as the lyrical west coast native came on to the stage and began performing songs from his Yellow Album mixtape and recently released album Get Home Safely such as, “We Ball” which features TDE’s own Kendrick Lamar, “Girls On Stage”, “The 5 Year Theory” and many many more! I will definitely say, the crowd got their money’s worth especially with guest appearance with Big K.R.I.T. and DJ Drama in the building.
People keep saying Hip-Hop is dead and when it comes to Atlanta many feel like the only thing that gets attention here is hype club bangers, but when you have an artist such Dom Kennedy capably of selling out his show and fans knowing every rap song word for word, if Hip-Hop is dead is definitely being revived as more artists as himself comes into the limelight.
