Female emcees often go under appreciated in a male dominated industry. They can spit it just as hard as your favorite mc’s and open fire on a track with lyrics that match and outperform any artist. Lately the top female slot has become a more coveted title, and their coming out rhymes blazing.
Out of North Carolina comes RAPSODY, 9th Wonder’s first lady of the new It’s a Wonder World Music Group. This release is one of the most refreshing sounds in hip hop much in need in the age of boob’s n gimmicks. She fires off whole magazines of rhymes with some of the dopest production. It’s hard to pinpoint standouts on this one with such a high quality of sound. Each track is closely crafted to its concept, bringing you closer to her artistry. Two of the tracks that stand out to me are Cipha Kid feat. Big Remo and Blankin Out in which she beams pure hip-hop over one of 9th’s brilliance. Joining Rapsody on are such collaborators as Rah Digga, Big Daddy Kane, Phil Adé, Thee Tom Hardy, Mac Miller, King Mez, Laws, and Skyzoo. Production comes courtesy of 9th Wonder, E. Jones, AMP, Ka$h, Khrysis, and Eric. G. If you love real hip hop download it here!
