While the mystery around 18-year old Dominic Lord continues to have labels frantically courting the young Harlem kid, Dominic Lord is only focused on making sure his art is properly introduced to the world. His official debut song “Pierce” caught the ears and curiosity of critics from a number of musical genres. I love how complex his production is. It’s almost Rza-esque the way the beat is layered with a million different sounds. “Old English” is a bit more of a traditional hip-hop song than “Pierce” but still enthralling as hell. The birds at the end seal the deal for me, almost like Premo’s in the beginning of “Nas Is Like.”

Dominic’s Fashion Show EP will be released on Sept. 7.
