After Karen Civil TV’s mini documentary brought us an in depth view of two of the West Coast’s most gifted independent artists, the union of Dom Kennedy and Nipsey Hussle returns over release “Don’t Forget Us”, a track forged in the sweats of their independent entrepreneurial struggles.
Yesterday, after Nipsey hit the net announcing that his project Crenshaw will be a free release, with physical copies selling for $100 a wop (numbered & signed), hundreds argued the topic of the worth of music. Regardless, he’s done something right. He’s on their minds, tweets, and their hearts with the latest collaboration with his Lemeirt Park brethren.
Dom’s voice radiates over the hook while Hussle relates his struggle over an impressive brass performance from horn player, Fela. Hussle spits, “ When my hope was low, I found light within.” Moments later he ponders, “..And if we livin’ in hell, is it alright to sin?”
All in all, it simply boils down to a truly anthemic record. Produced in by The Futuristiks and DJ Khalil, this is a song to remember. Crenshaw is out today, October 8th. Follow his movement on iamproud2pay.com and watch out for Dom Kennedy’s upcoming album, Get Home Safely, in stores Oct. 15.
