Since signing to Roc Nation in July, Jamla artist Rapsody has continued to make a case as one of rap’s strongest lyricists out. Holding her own with the likes of Talib Kweli and Kendrick Lamar, Rapsody has shown that she is definitely one of the strongest lyricists out today.
Following last week’s release, “Fire,” Rhapsody is back, but this week she’s letting haters and challengers alike know that she’s going to have them all in their feelings with her new single,“Mad.” Produced by the Soul Council’s Eric G., the fiery track addresses the folks that aren’t so thrilled about the explosive and long overdue rise of Rapsody, taking for granted that the rise didn’t come easy. After almost a decade of hard work and grinding, Rapsody notices that people are beginning to treat her differently and lets them know she’s on to the game of deceit.
Rapsody lets loose as she spits venom to her peers mad at her moves, saying:
“Jamla is the squad and Roc Nation’s still the family, man / You mad you just a family guy, watchin’ real families, mad / The First Family love me, the President say he a fan / They mad that a Black President is the best President we ever had / Tell ’em why you mad, son.”
Although Rapsody came with the heat, she’s definitely not done yet after less than 9 hours, she’s returned with the Ab-Soul-featured track, “2AM”, produced by Khrysis and 9th Wonder. Over a soulful selection, the two trade verses for nearly five minutes of the beat switching instrumental.
As if dropping two amazing singles weren’t enough, Rapsody’s website is showcasing a countdown indicating we are in for something big in less than 24 hours.
