Rapsody is notorious for spittin’ fire verses and she continues to give us solid bars. She dropped her latest project, Crown, and it is a banger. The 10-track mixtape is music with substance. No fluff, the tracks come with socially conscious lyrics and messages. Crown features a variety of guest artists including Anderson .Paak, Ab-Soul, and Moonchild. Last night at Sennheiser Studios in NYC, Rapsody celebrated the project with a live listening event. Accompanying her on the stage was the Storm Troopers Band and the legendary 9th Wonder.
The intimate listening event included a 7-track set followed by a Q&A session with AllHipHop.com’s Chuck Creekmur. She started the set with “Crown” and moved through tracks like “Mad”, “Complexion”, and “Godzilla”. Her performance energy is dope and she kept the crowd rocking the entire time.
The North Carolina native delivers this project with perfect timing. From beginning to end, it motivates and encourages people to keep pushing forward regardless of whatever. In the wake of all that is happening, this is a much needed breath of fresh air for the ears.
