One of my favourite rappers (I refuse to add female infront) in the Hip-Hop game and it’s only down the her dope flow and content yet it’s for what she stands for; “Culture Over Everything” – the Jamle motto. It’s rare to find a grounded artist in this era looking to educate the youth and Hip-Hop community on life struggles without glorifying a negative solution. Definitely need in this day and age.
This hot sh*t right here serves as the first video from Rapsody’s forthcoming debut album The Idea Of Beautiful which will be out in our stores 25th August under 9th Wonder’s label, Jamla Records. If you haven’t heard her recently released track with Ab-Soul and Raheem DeVaughn; “Non-Fiction” you need to hear that A$AP.
Rapsody also took some time out to explain her album’s artwork:
“Ndibulele Nqeni and Lowethu Zembe are the two little girls on the cover who live in Soweto, South Africa. 9th Wonder met them while he was touring in Johannesburg and took that picture. I look forward to meeting them when I tour there this month. I will be donating cash and other gifts to them, as well as other children in South Africa for representing my Idea Of Beautiful. This is like the beginning of my community work; I’ve been wanting to do with the youth for a long time. I work hard to be a great emcee, but I also want to be an even better role model to young girls like Ndibulele and Lowethu.”
