Rapsody Shows Once Again That Few MCs Can Hang With Her Whether Male Of Female (Audio)
For fans of Rapsody, the last couple of weeks have been golden. The North Carolina MC is celebrating her two musical families, Jamla and Roc Nation, with #JamRocFridays, releasing new music for what are now two consecutive weeks. As fans continue to anticipate the impending release of her first full length solo LP since 2012’s The Idea of Beautiful, her November 2016 The Crown EP whetted appetites. The clearly defined, scheduled rollout of #JamRockFridays will likely lead many to surmise that her first LP in five years will arrive soon, but she has yet to make any formal announcement regarding a release date. Nevertheless, there is more new Rapsody music to report, in the form of the 9th Wonder-produced “The Point.”
Featuring Australian Neo-Soul band Hiatus Kaiyote, Rapsody’s latest banger grooves and knocks as Naomi “Nai Palm” Saalfield’s vocals offer up a soulful landing pad for Rap’s piercing delivery. On it, she waxes inspirational, sharing advice on move making and survival of self: “Gotta leave home sometimes, to see from a different view/Give up control sometimes and watch the way others move/Everything is a chess game, I learned how to play well/Let go of them lame dudes, peace out to wack females/Come get you a real one, so you know what real love is.”
If all goes according to plan, Rapsody will release a third jewel on July 21 to follow up “The Pain” and “The Point.” Could she be prepping for a new album with “The Promise”?
