Rapsody – “Betty Shabazz” [Prod. by 9th Wonder]


It’s been a trend over the last year or two to make songs (with annoying chants) using the name of random celebrities. Nothing Rapsody does is random, and she adds a serious tone to this piece by invoking the name of the late activist and wife of Malcolm X, Betty Shabazz. With some strong drums and a melodic, dreamy vocal sample, Rapsody lays out what type of emcee she’s in the vein of. You’ll find this gem on the forthcoming Jamla Records compilation Jamla Is the Squad (January 28, Hosted by Statik Selektah).
