Video: Dom Kennedy - Locals Only

I got a chance to see Dom Kennedy at SXSW this year and was thoroughly impressed. He reminds me of Slim Thug but a more polished west coast version. It's good to see such a promising artist that can bridge the gap between hardcore west coast rap and relevant hip hop.

The video for "Locals Only" is the second clip from the album "From The Westside, With Love". Both the song and video are dope. The intro to the video kicks off with some good ole Les Nubians playing in a beautiful train station which immediately pulled me in. Then, Dom laces into the laid back piano driven beat with fresh rhymes and a very calm cool that blends perfectly with the track. The video was shot by Brandon Dimmit and directed by Bryant Robinson. Definitely digging this one.
