Singles Throwback: “Getto Jam” by Domino

Westsiiiide!

This is my jam! Domino and Snoop were the early pioneers of a melodious style of rapping that sounds more like singing: Domino’s slippery-smooth flow is what makes this song really chill — “Here we go, here we go as the tune starts to bloom/with a phat phat phat choree-us.”

It’s too bad that he was only a two-hit wonder. Domino’s explosion onto the music scene was almost as extreme as his disappearance. The only good part of discovering “Getto Jam” late in life (yes, 10th grade was too late) is that there must be other songs like this, hidden in the depths of “YO! MTV Raps!”
