As Rapsody pulled from Nas’ famous entrance phrase on “Halftime,” 9th Wonder channeled Large Professor’s echoey reverb and thumbing percussion for “Mass Hysteria”—which we are proud to premiere at AFH. Rap gives some of her finest wordplay on this cut which is mostly about being dope, but veers into some current-day issues by virtue of some super-tight similes. The essence of this song has that throwback appeal, with a particularly inventive mix at the chorus.

Coming off of an album in The Idea Of Beautiful that hit many best-of lists in the 2-0-1-2, you would be hard-pressed to find a more versatile MC who combines the essence of Rap with the present-day than this Kooley High graduate.
