“The power of the spirit makes the old heads holler.” Rapsody and Lance Skiiwalker muse on the many levels of strength in these new visuals for “Power.” Unfortunately, Kendrick couldn’t make the video so his part was cut. However, you should still be satisfied as the video jump for beautiful images of power (children growing, women celebrating each other, man working out/sparring) to some that are more destructive (guns, alcohol self-medication etc.). Rapsody’s excellent Laila’s Wisdom album is available now.



A standout track from last year’s Indie 500 album gets the video treatment with “Life Ahead of Me.” The animation visuals are courtesy of Cam Be and Claudia Rangel.


The sistahs got next in the latest visuals off Diamond D’s The Diam Piece. The trio of Rapsody, Boog Brown and Stacy Epps all float effortlessly over D’s smooth production. The clip is directed by Varras Tower and Nick Burnz.

New music from Rapsody, off her Beauty and the Beast EP (October 7). Khrysis gives Rapsody an unorthodox bounce to rhyme to, but the Jamla queen has no issue navigating it. If you’re feeling, you can download it HERE.


Newly drafted Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker keeps it Hip-Hop with his appearance in Rapsody and 9th Wonder’s “Illuminaughty” video. This short but dope track appeared on the recent compilation Jamla Is the Squad.



Pusha T’s “Numbers on the Board” beat didn’t get the love it should have last year, so it’s only right that an emcee like Rapsody try her hand at it. No word yet if this is a prelude to another project to follow-up her well-received 2013 tape She Got Game.


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).
