Rapsody Delivers Exactly What Hip Hop Needs Right Now

Rapsody Delivers Exactly What Hip Hop Needs Right Now
Will iam

Future, Drake, Meek Mill – the list goes on and on… These artists define hip hop today, and they’re talented in their own right, but they’re not true rap artists. They don’t stem from the lyrically soulful and talented golden ages of Nas and Rakim, SP-1200’s, and rich contexts and entendres. These days, those types of artists are few and far between (Kendrick, Lupe, we’re looking at you), and Rapsody is absolutely tearing it up as one of those artists. As arguably the first big female rapper to come onto the scene since Lil Kim (no, Nicki Minaj and Iggy don’t count as rappers), she is making a huge smash with her touching music that aims to cross boundaries and break barriers for women, black women, and black women in hip hop.

Take a listen below where Rapsody explains her philosophy around the 8:20 mark.
