Dessa & her Doomtree friends at Grand Old Day

I'm very impressed with local hiphop artists in the Twin Cities. Like some kind of musical Voltron, Minneapolis and St. Paul combine to form a scene with so much talent, it's silly. Actually, that's exactly what happened with the family of DJs, MCs and producers who became Doomtree.

On Sunday (Grand Old Day) I watched Doomtreer Dessa perform with members of live hiphop unit Heiruspecs. There was a parade of special unannounced guests throughout the set, including Jessy Greene on violin, fellow Doomtree MC SIMS, and Heiruspecs lead MC Felix. It was freaking incredible. When I got home, I warned my wife, "I'm going to be listening to a lot more hiphop for a while."

Listen with me, won't you?

Yeah, our hip-hop scene is surprisingly good - Rhymesayers is really putting is on the map with Brother Ali, Atmosphere, P.O.S., etc.

Of course I meant "putting us on the map," not is.

I think that this kind of music is really good, I know many people like sing in an amateur way, so I really like the hip hop music and rap music!
