Domingo Enlists Legends Like Big Daddy Kane To Showcase Tomorrow’s Brightest MCs (Audio)
If you’re a fan of hard-hitting street anthems, you may be familiar with veteran Brooklyn, New York producer Domingo’s work. His impressive list of collaborators includes Hip-Hop royalty like Kool G Rap, Big Daddy Kane and Sean Price. He has also worked with a plethora of other accomplished lyricists like Ras Kass, Masta Ace, Joell Ortiz and Action Bronson, to name just a few.
In 1998, Domingo produced “The Dream Shatterer” for Big Pun, one of the most celebrated tracks off the late MC’s debut classic, Capital Punishment. Today, he works extensively with Pun’s son, rapper Chris Rivers, as well as several other talented newcomers. On Generation Next, his latest release, Domingo showcases some of these promising artists, including Alyssa Marie, Oswin Benjamin and Token.
Domingo also enlists the help of some longtime associates like Kane and Ortiz, who join Rivers and Token on the uptempo lyrical bombardment “Kill At Will,” one of the project’s illest offerings—and the final mix of a song with multiple interations. The album even features guest production by D.I.T.C.’s own Buckwild, who provides rappers Zooka Joe and Nutso with the guitar-driven banger “Bullshit.” Furthermore, a lot of the beats are, in fact, collaborations—like the 20th Letter assisted “Bang It Out The Trunk,” which features Rivers and Whispers over a smooth horn lick and heavy drums, as well as several songs that were co-produced by Tonyroc. Domingo stands just as strong alone, however, on tracks like “Kill At Will” and the LP’s soulful closer “Coming Home.”
Generation Next follows Domingo’s last studio album, Same Game New Rules, released in 2014.
