Tampa hasn't seen an emcee (pardon me, femcee) like Dynasty before. It's a rare thing when an artist combines heartfelt storytelling, commanding stage presence, and a deep and palpable audience connection. The skills of Rah Digga, the soul of Lauren Hill, and the ruff neck swagger of MC Lyte. All appropriate descriptions for D.Y. It's easy to make comparisons when you start talking about female emcees. There are so few truly skilled women in hip hop. It's a boys club and as often as not, despite their talent, the girls have to tart themselves up and pander to an overactive and juvenile male fantasy just to get some attention (ahem...Lil Kim...cough cough Foxy Brown).
Not this lady.
Dynasty has been slowly making a name for herself, turning heads locally and all over the world thanks to a co-sign from DJ Premier who put her last single "Femcee" on his "On the Road" mixtape. Her second single "Magnificent" released through Recordpushers Entertainment, may accelerate her journey into the spotlight. A little more soulful and a little less rough than "Femcee," "Magnificent" tells a story of transcendence, hope, and is universal in its themes. Stay tuned in for more from Dynasty and lookout for her debut album "Dream Pusher." The lady is very much an original, and she is "Magnificent!"
