[EP REVIEW] Dante Lennon – Party At A Funeral


[BROOKLYN, NEW YORK] Making her debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we got femcee Dante Lennon with her latest EP entitled Party At A Funeral. Dante Lennon definitely presents a tough/fierce female role, with so much power in her flow. Party At A Funeral also features PremeDaPrez, D.R.U.G, and Deacon. The eight track project really provides you a sight of love and loss throughout it all.

Dante Lennon presents us with a retrospective dialogue aimed towards to celebrating the complexities that make life appealing. Taking a few listens in on the EP, Dante Lennon brings us some really detailed situations that only makes you wonder. My favorite tracks off Party At A Funeral are EVEL, PARTY AT A FUNERAL, WAITING, THAT LIFE, AND FIN. Here’s what I thought about those tracks:

EVEL – Dante Lennon brings us a revealing pass. Talks about what’s happened at her performances, what’s she willing to do for a relationship, and having to deal with people betraying her. Dante Lennon makes sure to deal with these situations the most positive way even though it caused some pain. She’s moving forward without looking back. The vocals singing “I’m Evel Canvel, watch me blast off” really gives you that whatever you want to do, you’re going to do it.

PARTY AT A FUNERAL – Opening up about hustling in the streets and up to no good, now she’s on a better path. The vibe of the track gives me a late 90’s street cypher style/production. I’m personally in love with Dante Lennon’s second verse on this track. I felt she deliver that with perfection. She murdered it with that one.

WAITING – Gives the listener a perspective of someone who’s dealing with heartache. About a love that didn’t last and doesn’t want another chance at it. But you still want to try. You expect them to wait for you and not being with someone else. Because you know that love was real. You made mistakes, but improving yourself and hoping they want to be with you again, someday. But unfortunately, in this tale it’s not a happily ever after.

“Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and desire to hide.” -Dante Lennon

THAT LIFE – Off rip, this track gives you a trance like vibe, in a way it reminds me of Missy Elliot. But I don’t mind that at all, I like how Dante Lennon can adjust her flow speed depending on the pace of the beat. She sounds hella dope on this track, I can definitely hear this on the radio. Definitely that pop/hip-hop sound to it.

FIN – What a way to end Party At A Funeral with straight up BARS! Dante Lennon brings it to the table with what she has to say. She even brings up the topics of police brutality, gentrification occurring in her neighborhood, and what she got to do to survive.

Opening up the pages to her diary, Dante Lennon reveals much truth with her lyrics. And with that she wants you to get to know her story. If you’re feeling her project as much as I am, you should definitely take a look for updates by following her social media outlets. Check out her latest music video for One Thing:
