Dom Kennedy recently connected with the good folks at Mass Appeal to discuss bevy of topics. Of course, they touched on his new album, Get Home Safely, in a conversation that also revealed why he started rhyming, who he’d like to collaborate with, his favorite film and more.

Kennedy, known for painting a vivid picture of his personal life and Los Angeles’ Leimert Park neighborhood, is no stranger to crafting a listenable tune. “Ron Isley, George Clinton — just because his music made my mom so happy,” said the West Coast native about a few legend’s he’d like to work with.

He continued, “I would love to work with Pharrell, just [with] Pharrell being the best producer of the decade.” Surprisingly, Kennedy also named Bobby Womack, who he says he studied when making Get Home Safely.

Coincidentally, Rick Ross, an artist who attempted to sign Kennedy to MMG, has a song with Womack on his upcoming Mastermind LP.
