Rapsody has launched her first official video from her forthcoming album The Idea of Beautiful, due out on August 28. Don’t sleep; this is sounding like it’ll be one of better releases to drop this year. There’s a deeper meaning behind the cover as Rapsody herself explains below.
Ndibulele Nqeni and Lowethu Zembe are the two little girls on the cover who live in Soweto, South Africa. 9th Wonder met them while he was touring in Johannesburg and took that picture. I look forward to meeting them when I tour there this month. I will be donating cash and other gifts to them, as well as other children in South Africa for representing my Idea Of Beautiful. This is like the beginning of my community work; I’ve been wanting to do with the youth for a long time. I work hard to be a great emcee, but I also want to be an even better role model to young girls like Ndibulele and Lowethu.
