Here’s your Minnesota Musician of the Day!
This is probably my favorite Dessa song of all time. Who else can make regret and ambiguity sound so good?
If you live in the Twin Cities, you probably already know who Dessa is. If you don’t, she’s one of the founding members of Doomtree (a super-talented, very popular local hip hop collective) and one of the premier hip hop artists in Minnesota. She was a poet before she was a musician, and you can tell it in her lyrics. She uses words like a ballerina uses her body.
Find her next performance dates (both locally and nationally, with Doomtree or on her own) on her Facebook page.
