Dom Kennedy Approached By Maybach Music Group & Interscope

Dom Kennedy says he's been courted by Maybach Music Group and Interscope with offers.

Los Angeles upstart Dom Kennedy recently caught up with Q104.7's Rico and Mambo Morning Show to discuss his recent critically acclaimed project The Yellow Album. During the interview, the O.P.M. Recording emcee talked about going the independent route with his music and named a few offers he's received along the way.

Dom said that he never really put much effort into seeking out a record deal as opposed to making the kind of music he loved. Still, that doesn't mean that people in the industry haven't come knocking; Dom revealed he's been courted by Maybach Music Group and Interscope with offers, but he has a specific number in mind that needs to be met before he says yes to anyone.

"I'm having fun to be honest with you, and it's funny that when you just have fun and you do it 'cus you love it, that's when everything comes [with label offers]," he said. "I didn't make 'My Type of Party' for anybody to really pay attention to or for radio stations to really play; I made [my music] because I really enjoyed it…I don't want to be miserable and try to follow everybody; that'll drive you crazy. [Hearing my music on the radio], it's letting me know it's working."

He continued, "It's all true [that I've been courted by MMG and Interscope] - at this point, any company that you can think of has hit us up or has an offer on the table. Obviously, it's not the right one…we definitely talking numbers. That's the whole conversation. [I'm thinking] $2 million. And they don't even got that, but you can ask for it, all they can say is no. [But] if you call with $2 million, we could probably shake hands."

    Not to hate on dude, but aint no way in hell he gettin 2 mill. Not him and not this day in age with how flemsy the game is right now. When 50 came out he only got 1 mill and he was in high demand. I mean, i hope he gets what hes lookin for, but realistically, i dont see it. not 2 mill.

      Dom Kennedy is asking for 2 Million because he liiking at his homies situation and trying to win at the same time. Dom is really cool with Curren$y, Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T., Stalley Asher Roth, and Pac Div. Most of his homies are now at Majors. He looking at his value in the game and asking for a large amount because he knows he is worth 2 mil but probably knows he isn't getting what Curren$y got from Warner Brothers or Kendrick from Interscope but he know he is bigger then the other guys so wants more than he assumed they got for signing. Like homie said before he is getting money now and only wants a big deal so he can work with big artist now. Indie he is doing whatever the fuck he wants and getting paid

      unclesam's right. no label politics, no drama, just artistry + full control over everthing... fans should thank dom for this smart decision.

      My dude, you gotta think about this. Dom K is probably making a million a year underground, why would he want to sign to a label, give them a cut of HIS money, give them his masters, basically give up his freedom, for just one million? Two, okay, most people would probably be hella happy with 2 million. You can get a lot of artists, a lot of studio time, a lot of producers with 2 million. But less than that just ain't worth it for him.
