Years are divided into seasons, and each one is three months. The latest, fall, just started!
As far as L.A. music, it's shaping up to be a winner. Big things are expected from veterans and rookies alike. Here are our picks for five you should look out for.
5. Dom Kennedy
Get Home Safely
Due Date: October 1
You may be forgiven for sleeping on Dom Kennedy; he's an independent dude who sometimes lacks visibility. But has there ever been a better time for talented rappers to establish themselves outside the major system? That's what this L.A. beat bully has been doing with his batch of (mostly) celebrated mixtapes for a minute. The journey continues on Get Home Safely, and our expectations are high.
