Dynasty — The Love EP It’s easy to love this original Tampa “femcee” (just read any of the coverage CL has devoted to Dynasty’s solo work and collabs with hip-hop luminaries like Talib Kweli and DJ Premiere). The Love EP, however, feels like a tryst or trust fall where Dy has to sit in the shadows so Diana (her real name) can kick it old-school while music by Common plays in the background as she offers prospective lovers and friends a bevy of promises that she demands you hold her accountable for. There’s a lot of painful talk about relationships, jealousy and the imperfections that seem to mar every fabric of our daily existence here, but our heroine gives us just enough light to make us brave enough to let her lead us through the thicket.
