Talking points consisted of homophobia, sexism and violence in hip-hop lyrics reported City Pages.

Coming from a musician who refuses to use or work with anyone who uses three slurs against women, gays or blacks said WCCO.

Dessa proclaimed that rappers do not have a different moral code than any other citizen and their ability as performers should not interfere with their morals said City Pages.
