Even if you had Dom Kennedy‘s whips, his clothes, his buzz and his paper, something would still be missing from the equation. On Nothin Like Me, a freshly-released standout off DJ Mustard‘s latest compilation, the West Coast stalwart celebrates that special je ne sais quoi that distinguishes him from the pack—and makes him irresistible to the women in his life. Mustard crafts a summery beat to complement Kennedy’s self-assured verses, layering triumphant brass harmonies and breezy guitar riffs over a bassline which, if my ears don’t deceive me, was borrowed from Kendrick Lamar‘s Swimming Pools (Drank). For Nothin Like Me and more fresh material, check out the producer’s Ketchup tape, released yesterday evening for free download. Additionally, keep it locked for further details on Kennedy’s Get Home Safely LP, scheduled to drop before the summer’s out.
