The makings of a DYNASTY...

Dynasty: The word dynasty, pronounced "DIE-nas-tee," comes from the Greek word dynasteia, meaning "power, lordship, sovereignty."

Royal. Purposeful. Powerful.

Queen of her domain, undeniably reigning in her own lane...DY is NASTY on the mic.
 

Queens-bred hip-hop/soul artist, Dynasty, has the soul of a dreamer and the fearless determination to follow that dream wherever it might lead. DY has lit up stages alongside some of your favorite artists including Erykah Badu, The Wu-Tang Clan, Talib Kweli and KRS One who proclaimed “THIS is a real emcee!” after catching her set. 

Her performance on records and on the stage truly sets her apart. Dynasty writes from the heart yet at the same time, remains a beast on the mic. She has collaborated with legendary, world renowned artists such as Talib Kweli and DJ Premier who labeled her a “spit queen” based on her lyrical prowess. Influenced by gritty northern sounds and life’s adventures, she brings us a perfectly balanced raw and real experience through her music. She has toured internationally from Germany to Romania and beyond, performing and connecting with people of all ages and backgrounds. 

After spending a little more than a year working on other artistic endeavors (she is an actress and also runs an arts-based empowerment program, The PUSH Project) she is back to her first love, her music, which she refers to as hip hop/ soul. There is no “set demographic” for D.Y., no gimmick, no crafted agenda aside from making beautifully raw music. Her authentic mass appeal transcends all boundaries. 

Rightfully so, soul music touches the world.

 

Stay in touch with DY!
