    Get Home Safely, Dom Kennedy’s second studio album and follow up to last year's Yellow Album, demonstrates Dom Kennedy’s unique ability to weave highly accessible stories into his lyrics without compromising intelligibility. Actually, it’s not a trait unique to him. Artists like Slick Rick, Snoop and Nas are known for this same technique.

    We're seeing a few new rap entries grace the Billboard 200 this week, with new albums out from Lil Durk and Dom Kennedy. Durk's debut, Remember My Name, has been a long time coming, so long in fact, that it appears fans may have lost hope. Even with its release, it's received sub-par reviews. It may not have been a complete flop, but it didn't crack the top 10 for its debut.

    This week saw a range of debuts from a range of artists. The top entry within rap and R&B went to Jason Derulo who slid in at number four, just under Rocky who managed to have another strong week. A little farther down Chicago drill hero Lil Durk put his debut album in at number 14, and Dom Kennedy quietly slipped in at 23. While me may see the latter two LPs fall in the coming weeks, Derulo has been known to stick around, especially considering he's got a few potential hits lined up.

    In recent history, there’s been a few kinds of rap albums: the long ones and the short ones, those with lots of features and those kept rather personal. A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, and The Social Experiment went with longer listens peppered with tons of flavor from their friends and collaborators. Drake put out a lengthy album but the features were scarce, while Earl Sweatshirt decided a 30-minute album was the way to go.

    Dom Kennedy has been working hard since his rise to prominence in 2008. Releasing 7 mixtapes, 2 albums and a bunch of features, Dom may just be the most prolific West Coast rapper in recent history. From The West Coast With Love is not only the name of Dom's 2010, highly-enjoyed mixtape, but also serves as an introduction to his entire steeze. If someone asked you who Dom Kennedy is, you could easily reply, "that boy is From The West Coast With Love." It's both his best-known work and artistic statement.

    Dom Kennedy has taken a back seat when it comes to music, after releasing Get Home Safely just over a year ago. He's been keeping himself busy by touring in support of the album, but still, fans are fiending for some new music from the chilled out L.A. rapper. We caught up with Dom after a recent show, and the rapper promised us that he's been steady working even if we don't see the output ourselves.

Nonetheless, fans were definitely asking for Dom to put the album up on Spotify like he did with his last release, Get Home Safely, and Dom has since obliged.

    Y'all remember "Nothin' But a G Thang"? Silly question. Of course you do; even if you weren't born when it dropped. Snoop and Dre helped birth a West Coast sound that was effortlessly funky and hasn't been matched since. Even if you've never been to Cali, we got a taste of what the lifestyle was all about. In the middle of rough streets, these guys knew how to have a good time and gave us one helluva soundtrack to match.

    After a big first quarter, May has been kind of a slump month for releases, as there's tons of noteworthy projects planned for this summer, but the last few weeks have mostly been dominated by singles, videos and news. However, we did get great new tapes from Gucci Mane, Fredo Santana, King Louie and Remy Banks this week, some crazy visuals from A$AP Rocky and some big singles from 50 Cent and Gunplay.

    Jay 305's buzz is beginning to transcend the internet and his native West Coast, with the release of his lead single "Thuggin," produced by DJ Mustard. The OPM-affiliated rapper may already have a major label deal under his belt (Interscope), however he's still pretty new to this rap thing, and was thus a perfect match for our On The Come Up series.

    Nothing too big transpired on the charts this week when it comes to hip-hop. That's not to say there weren't hip-hop releases-- there most definitely were, however, none could top Drake's Nothing Was The Same at #4 on the Billboard 200. And if DJ Khaled's low sales projections are correct, Khaled probably won't top Drizzy either next week.
