Dynasty Vol State\\\'s rap star
Issue date: 10/6/08 Section: Entertainment
PrintEmail Article Tools Page 1 of 1 Last week in Entertainment the Good Way, I talked about how rap had to have an urban revival.
There had to be artist talking about what was really happening in the real world, not just the world where someone cuts an album and gets rich.
This week I got a chance to review a Nashville based underground artist who works right here at Volunteer State Community College.
Dynasty\\\'s new album \\\"No Way Out\\\" found its way into my hands and my CD player. You may see him working around the T. Wesley Pickel Field House, but on the weekend he spits \\\"the truth.\\\"
As soon as you pop this album in, you feel an instant energy. It\\\'s not an overproduced, Wal-Mart edited, typical marketed hip-hop. It is soaked in emotion, pain, reality, struggle, and love for what he does.
These qualities all come out in the music. In the fi rst track, \\\"Rap for the Moment,\\\" you are introduced to his reality. It\\\'s not a pretty one, it\\\'s not an easy one, but the listener can tell Dynasty takes pride in what his life is.
The best tracks on this CD are the ones that are close to home. The topics that come close to his heart shine, like a diamond in the rough. In a \\\"When No One Loves You,\\\" and \\\"Letter to My Family pt 2,\\\" the reality hits you in the face.
There is triumph in his voice, even when the subject is defeat. Every part of his life seems to have grown his rap and character.
One of my favorite tracks on this CD had to be \\\"Do You Wanna Roll.\\\"
This track would be perfect for radio play. Featuring fellow underground urban poet Pistol, this track brings movement and a groove. This is the perfect track to \\\"bump\\\" out of your system while cruising.
Other great tracks on this CD include \\\"Work Ethic,\\\" \\\"Let\\\'s Talk it Over,\\\" and the B.I.G. infl uenced \\\"Momma.\\\"
