Dom Kennedy is looking to further cement his legacy as one of the Wes Coast’s beloved acts.
The self-proclaimed “Leimert Park Legend” took to social media on Friday (March 26) with an announcement more than 10 years in the making, the third installment of his From The Westside With Love series was on its way.
“When I decided to release the first From the Westside with Love in March 2010 I wanted to prove to myself that I could make a body of work that would reach way beyond just my neighborhood in Los Angeles,” he wrote on Instagram. “It was a gut check for me to show my love for the genre of rap and what I could possibly bring to it.”
He continued, “A year later we dropped From the Westside with Love 2 which many believe to be one of my best efforts. At this point in my career I’m still in love with making great rap music. I decided to cement my true legacy with another gift, From the Westside with Love Three.”
The original From The Westside With Love mixtape featured breakthrough singles from Dom including “1997,” “Still Me,” and “Choose Up.”. Kennedy continued the momentum on 2011’s From The Westside With Love II with the popular singles “Grind’n,” and “Platinum Chanel”. Between the two, only From The Westside With Love II is available on digital streaming platforms. Dom’s numerous features and collaborations have kept a fixture on the music scene, and he continues to grow his loyal fanbase.
