Some artists leave an impression when you meet them from their talent that you will always remember and Dynasty is one of those rare ones for me. A few years back we crossed passed working on a compilation project and rocked some showcases in N.Y. together prior to her move to Tampa. I could never forget her seemingly effortless flow, clarity, and way with words. She was and continues to be witty, funny, and uplifting.
It’s been a little while since DY’s last release, A Star in Life’s Clothing, which featured Skyzoo and production from the legendary, DJ Premier. Fresh off of her Fall European tour, DY has dropped her new album, Forever, DY.
Featuring soulful production from the likes of Apollo Brown and OP Supa, DY presents another solid and authentic, well-rounded album, with dope beats and lyrics. In a time where female MC’s are known strictly for their bodies and provocative lyrics, it is so refreshing when a Femcee like DY cuts through with skill and quality.
Favorites on the album for me are “The Lord” a song where she gives a truly thought provoking and self-reflecting take on God. The track knocks with the head nod provided by OP Supa. Another joint that had me going was a little bit of a surprise as Dynasty teams up with crooner Kafoeno on “Loyalty.” This joint is a classic Neo-Soul / Hip-Hop combo. “One Day” provides that true soul and vibe perfect for a long drive that you put on repeat. Inspiring and a song of hope as DY raps “…I’m over here roaming where they free at…”
I truly believe there has not been a Female MC since Lauryn Hill with this skill level and love in her music. There is a reason why she is revered across the globe not just here in the states. Forever DY is classic Hip-Hop from start to finish with no fillers or finger snaps trying to fit into what’s seemingly popular. You won’t find any auto-tune or strip club records either, just yagirldy.
