Last night LA’s very own Dom Kennedy touched down in the Queen City of Charlotte, NC to host a show on his #GetHomeSafelyTour. Along side him was Inglewood’s own Skeme. Not only that, but i got to link up with a couple of my boys – @Bushid0_Br0wn, @DapperJ, @chrissanderso16 & @JeffSander_SON. It didn’t matter that the performers were from the West Coast and we were on the East coast – it was our type of party.
Like most concerts, before the main event there were some opening acts. @SuperNikeNando, a #DMV native was the first to kick things off. Straight up, I had never even heard of this cat. He was an energetic performer though and I think the crowd respected that despite not knowing much about him. It does take a lot of courage to get up and perform in front of an audience when you aren’t well known and I have to give him props for doing that. He had a natural stage presence and was really comfortable up there. He is definitely worth looking into if you have some spare time.
Next up: The #AMCSBodega boys – specifically @Lotta910 and @ElevatorJay. I’ve seen Elevator perform before once when he opened up for Big KRIT and he’s only gotten better. (@Bushid0_Br0wn was with me at that show and can testify).This is one high energy group of guys that don’t disappoint. They held it down at the Neighborhood Theatre a couple weeks ago when Nipsey came to town and they didn’t miss a beat tonight. Lotta and Elevator make you proud to be from Charlotte. I suggest you check em out.
Next stop: Mollyworld.
Skeme came out and the crowd got hype! He ripped some bars off for everyone’s viewing pleasure and went through a number of songs, all of which I wasn’t able to get ahold of. He performed for about 20-30 mins but I do know before he got off the stage he performed “T.O.”. I’m a sucker for some DJ Mustard beats and judging from the crowd, they are too.
Finally. The time had come. DOM KENNEDY.
The crowd went APE!! “Dominic” was the first track that got sliced up and from there on out it only got better. Dom ran through a number of songs including:
“Let’s Be Friends”
“If It Don’t Make Money” – in which Skeme came back out and did his verse. DOPE.
“My Type of Party” – SET THE BITCH OFF when this came on
“We Ball” – the crowd rapped the entire Kendrick verse. also DOPE.
“South Central Love”
“Still Callin” – AINT NO PARTY LIKE AN OPM PARTY CAUSE AN OPM PARTY DONT STOPPP!!
“Erica Part 2”
I may have missed a track or two but this was the majority of them. Big ups to Dom too, he performed for almost an hour and a half. Fans really do appreciate that. Afterwards I caught up with @chrissanderso16 and @JeffSander_SON while the place was clearing out and Chris got the hookup. He’s a huge Dom fan and this was his first rap show. EVER. He had the hard copy of the Get Home Safely album with him and one of the DJ’s who was packing up actually took the album backstage to Dom and got the inside jacket signed! Chris was happier than a baby in a barrell of titties.
Another great show in the books. Check Dom’s site for tour info @ http://dopeitsdom.com/tour/#tickets
Real quick, @DapperJ you owe me a photo op at the next show!!
