Dessa - The First Lady of Doomtree Moves The Crowd
Tuesday, May 14, 2013

When Dessa performed in Fairfield, CT, last week, it was at a venue that had seating, which, as anyone who’s been in a sweaty club getting drinks spilled on them all night so they can see their favorite emcee, isn’t typical for hip-hop shows. While a little space is nice, and it’s doubly nice to not wear someone’s beer, seating isn’t necessarily optimal for a genre that involves movement. The Doomtree emcee/singer had a challenge on her hands - motivate the audience to get up and move. By the end of the night that mission was accomplished, as the seats were empty, and the venue was filled with energy.

Dessa’s set list included a mix of favorites from her previous albums, as well as a few songs from her upcoming release, Parts of Speech, which will be available on June 25th. Before the show, I caught up with Dessa to find out more about Parts of Speech, as well as her special relationship with her fans. Dessa also revealed what she feels she still struggles with, and her surprising initial reaction when she first heard Nicki Minaj.
