So there was a great rap concert last night in Omaha, Nebraska and hopefully you were there. It was at The Waiting Room (@waiting_room) and included P.O.S, Sims, Transit, and Cecil Otter, among others. All of these rappers and artists call themselves as a collective, Doomtree. And they have been around for more than a decade. They were once signed to the well known record label Rhymesayers, which started in the 1990’s in Minneapolis, Minnesota with Sean “Slug” Daley and friends. But now, they run their own label.
There was one female rapper that stole the show last night though. Her name is Dessa, and aesthetically she is gorgeous. But more importantly, she is an artist with a sound and lyrics that are astounding. She performed a song that many recognized, “Seamstress” and it was epic. It was about herself poking holes, stitching, and trying to fix broken things that are sometimes beyond repair. This included a broken angel in a box beneath her bed when she was a child, a bird in a cage, and men.
When all was said and done, it was another great rap concert for a room full of hip-hop heads. If you ever get the chance to see Doomtree live do yourself a favor and get to their next concert. They are on tour right now. Visit doomtree.net for more information.
