Dom Kennedy (birth name – Dominic Ross Hunn) is an American rapper who got his start in the underground hip-hop scenes of Los Angeles, California.
With his first album released in 2008, he has come a long way.

The Origin Story
The California native was born on August 22, 1984, and had a relatively normal life.
His parents divorced when he was young, and he and his mom moved to Leimert Park, Los Angeles.
As a kid and teen, Dom mostly played basketball and baseball in his free time.
After high school, Dom continued his education at Santa Monica College. He always knew he’d make something of himself as an entrepreneur, so he studied Business Management.
Dom credits growing up in LA as a key factor in why his rap career has been so successful.
He told No Jumper, “You know, growing up in the city, you meet a lot of people… That’s kind of my story with LA. When I go places, sometimes I know people because I do music, but sometimes I know people because I just know them.”
In 2008, Dom entered the Westside LA rap scene with the release of his first mixtape titled “25th Hour.”
Radio stations around his area started playing the song “Watermelon Sunday,” and Kennedy started gaining confidence as an artist.
In 2009, he released two additional mixtapes titled “Future Street/Drug Sounds” and “Best after Bobby.”
Dom’s new albums had thousands of downloads upon release, spreading his name in the Westside underground hip hop world.
2010 was perhaps the most transformative year in Dom Kennedy’s career. He released his third mixtape titled “From the Westside with Love,” which led to a feature in The Source (an infamous hip hop magazine) as well as his first international show (Djibouti, Africa).
After the release of “From the Westside with Love,” Dom started performing more, even headlining some major venues (The Key Club, House of Blues, and more).
In 2011, Dom released another independent album titled ‘The Original Dom Kennedy.” He also recorded and released another studio album, “From the Westside with Love, II.”
In 2012, Kennedy released two more independent albums titled “Yellow Album” and “Young Nation.” He also toured from London back to LA, making appearances and performing in dozens of cities across Europe and the U.S. on his Yellow Album World Tour.
2013 brought Dom a signing offer from Interscope Records – Kennedy chose to decline the offer and remain unsigned. He released his second studio album, “Get Home Safely,” with features from some big-name rappers and sold over 10,000 copies in the first seven days.
In 2015, the studio album “By Dom Kennedy” earned a spot on the Billboard 200. He also released another independent album titled “Best After Bobby 2.”
In 2016, he released “Los Angeles is Not For Sale, Vol. 1” – this was his fourth studio-recorded album.
