At a time where great female rappers in the game are lacking, Rapsody provides a breath of fresh air. Also a part of the group, Kooley High, I’ve been a fan of hers for a while now and she continues to deliver on mostly everything I’ve heard. Her style is unique, I see her as a wordsmith. Her music has that 90’s feel with a lil distinct flavor. I don’t think I’ve seen this much style and skill from a female MC since I’ve been a fan of music. She’s actually talking about something like they used to back in the day.
“I want to be the female Jay Z and I tell them I want to be the role model for little black girls. Like you have Lauryn she came in two albums and she’s out, MC Lyte, she’s not making music as much as she was in the day, so it’s like I want to be the female Jay Z. I want to be Lauryn Hill and MC Lyte if they had stayed in the game and made album after album and classic album, I want longevity, I want to be a powerhouse, I was looking at the Ebony magazine, I want to be the Ebony Power 150. I want to be a role model to little black girls.” -Rapsody
Being linked to 9th Wonder is not a bad look either. Like Skyzoo, I think she sounds best on a 9th production. I have been bumping her mixtapes “Replay” and “Return of the B-Girl” hard lately and I’m convinced that Rapsody has the potential to be something great. She has the ability to flip it with clever metaphors, stories, and speak on relatable subjects to say the least. A versatile MC for sure. I’m curious to see how she develops as her career progresses. I recommend you check her out.
