Dom Kennedy’s Yellow Album was the talk of the ‘Net leading up to, and after ,it’s release Thursday (June 21), and the rapper couldn’t be happier. “It feels great,” Kennedy tells Hip-Hop Wired of putting the album out. “I worked on it for like a year consistently, and I kinda knew in my head how I’d put it together, how I [thought] people would percieve it, but to just put it out and get people’s opinions is crazy.”

Given the lukewarm commercial response to his From the West Side With Love II release, some saw the “My Type of Party” rapper as having a lot to prove with this new project, pressure which didn’t faze him. “If anything, [I put] pressure on myself. That’s always really the pressure, the pressure to just perform my best and give my all, and I feel like I did that with the Yellow Album. My thing was I wasn’t going to stop until I felt like it, and that’s kind of what my goal was. It wasn’t no time table with nobody else because I went and did stuff different on the Yellow Album. It was just on myself to perform up to my expectations.”

Next on the agenda, Kennedy plans to shoot a few videos, before touring overseas, later in the summer.
