Stepping on the stage, often in heels, with her petite frame and a big bright smile that can light up the room, she charms them. Then, a banging beat drops and she totally transforms…. 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. D.Y. has lit up stages opening for Erykah Badu, The Wu-Tang Clan, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and more. She amazes and captivates crowds. Her performance on records and on the stage truly sets her apart. Never caught up in writing “formula rap” as she calls it, Dynasty writes from the heart and at the same time, remains a beast on the mic. She has surely made a name for herself, turning heads all over the world. In fact, the legendary DJ Premier gave her the ultimate cosign by producing a song for her. “Epic Dynasty” was placed on his compilation album, Get Used to Us. He even appears alongside D.Y. in the video for the song. Dynasty set off 2013 with a career high, releasing a song and video with one of her favorite artists, world renowned Talib Kweli, Stay Shinin’. All of these things considered, one of her most favorite things is performing for and working with youth. She frequently visits juvenile detention centers and other programs to speak with teens about following their dreams. One can certainly see that in 2013, the DREAMPUSHER that we know as Ya Girl D.Y. is reaching the heights that she envisioned as a kid. With a seven-city Dreampusher Tour in Germany, followed by an album release, an East Coast tour (US) and another European tour at the end of the year…there is absolutely no denying this star. Dynasty’s passion transcends the stage. There is no “set demographic” for D.Y., no gimmick, no crafted agenda aside from making beautiful music. Her mass appeal transcends all boundaries. Rightfully so, soul music touches the world “Inside there’s a flame that is untamed/ I stand strong in the rain, I am unchanged/ til the earth takes me in & I’m reclaimed/ when the sound stops still make the ground hot.. and I don’t do it for the fame/ I got nothin’ to lose but have everything to gain/ and when its all said and done..I will remain, pushin’ my dream forever your girl, D.Y. remember the name..” – Dynasty.
