Who The Hell Is…Rapsody?

Kendrick Lamar’s explosive sophomore opus To Pimp A Butterfly doesn’t boast a hefty amount of guest appearances. Outside of Snoop Dogg, the album features only one other rapper not named Kendrick. That other rapper? North Carolina’s Rapsody, Kendrick’s co-pilot on the introspective “Complexion (A Zulu Love).” There’s a reason why this indie fav got the green light on the most anticipated album of 2015 – let us count the ways.

WHO is Rapsody?

Coming straight out of Snow Hill, North Carolina, Rapsody embodies the meaning of blue collar. The 27-year-old has released eight projects in just a span of four years. She’s logged studio time with new schoolers such as Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, and BIG K.R.I.T – beloved songstresses like Eryka Badu and Marsha Ambrosius — and legendary names like DJ Premier and Big Daddy Kane. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that she’s backed by Grammy award winning producer, 9th Wonder, who signed the North Carolina State University grad to his Jamla imprint in 2008.
