Joey Bada$$ vs. Dom Kennedy – Underground Kings, Round 1

It’s Beast meets West in this Round 1 face off.

As front man of Pro Era, young hip-hop prodigy Joey Bada$$ has carved out a niche for himself as a progressive 21st Century MC with a style that harkens back to hip-hop’s Golden Era of the ‘90s. Without a radio hit or any trend chasing this member of the Beast Coast collective, he’s amassed a legion of loyal fans the world over.

Personifying L.A.’s cool kid vibe, Dom Kennedy has made a lane for himself with music that’s street enough to ride to with the homies yet female-friendly enough to bump for the ladies. He just dropped his highly-anticipated new album, ‘Get Home Safely,’ independently and even had CDs available for purchase at Best Buy stores across the country. Not bad for a kid from Leimert Park.

Voting for this round closes on Thursday Oct. 31 at 3:59PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour, so keep coming back to make sure that your favorite indie rap act wins!
