Mikey: When Info first sent over Dominic Lord’s video to me, I didn’t even bother to watch it. I just hit play on the Youtube and went about answering my morning emails. It was about 30 seconds in when my ear-buds made me stop what I was doing and go straight to the tab with “Pierce” playing. He’s not a super duper lyrical-miracle, or gimmicky, “let me ride off my swag,” type of “rapper.” In fact, I’m not even sure if it’s right to call him just a “rapper.” Let’s roll with incredibly talented music creator for now (he writes and produces, too). It’s hard to say exactly what it is about Dominic that makes him a star but he has something special. The two-minute teaser video wasn’t enough, so his team blessed us with the world premiere of “Pierce” in its entirety. The second verse needs to be analyzed, people.
