Dom Kennedy Releases a True Hip-Hop Love Song (Audio)

When’s the last time you heard a Hip-Hop love song? Not a song about a conquest, but one with courtship and true complimentary words about the object of the artist’s affection? Some come to mind, like The Roots’ “Silent Treatment,” dead.prez’s “Mind Sex” and Common’s “The Light.” And, of course, there’s the all-time classic, Method Man and Mary J. Blige’s “I’ll Be There for You/You’re All I Need to Get By,” but they are few and far between.

Dom Kennedy adds to the catalog with his latest release, “2 Bad.” As the title suggests, Dom has penned a song about a woman who is so beautiful he was at a loss for words when he first encountered her, so he expresses his desire in verse. Accompanied by the multi-talented Tish Hyman (who recently became the first woman to ever freestyle as part of Sway’s Five Fingers of Death challenge) on the hook, Dom lays down all the things he would do for the woman, if given the chance.

The song is the latest release from Dom’s new album, By Dom Kennedy, which hits stores on June 2.
