Dessa Speaks

The hip-hop star reads her essay on dads and shares a tune from her new album, <em>Parts of Speech</em>

When we asked Dessa to write an essay for Minnesota Monthly, possibly related to Father’s Day, she didn’t hesitate. She’s been thinking a lot about her father—always has, actually. As she relates in Tinnitus, he’s been an outsized influence on her from the beginning.

This month, in a sold-out show at the Fitzgerald Theater, Dessa will celebrate the release of her new album, Parts of Speech.
