Dessa - Interview (last.fm sessions)

CLIP 3:54 | May 30, 2013

Dessa discusses her new material with last.fm

Recently, we caught a glimpse of Minnesota’s own underground hip-hop artist, Dessa, touring to promote her upcoming album Parts of Speech on Doomtree Records. Dessa is a longtime veteran of the Twin Cities label, as well as its only female MC.

This time out, Dessa isn’t holding back artistically and is giving her fans something unexpected, dipping into jazz and hard-rock while still keeping her hip-hop foundation.  “There’s a lot of ground musically covered.  So there’ll be some tender moments, and there’ll be some whiskey-chuggin not so tender moments.”

“The Lamb”

Dessa sat down with us before her show at Brooklyn’s Union Hall, to discuss the new album, finding the right musicians for her band, and her qualms with misogyny  in the Hip-hop world.

Dessa is continuing to tour this Summer in support of Parts of Speech
