Even without a new project of her own, Rapsody proved herself as one of the best MCs out in 2015. A feature on Kendrick Lamar’s continually lauded To Pimp A Butterfly may have pushed her into the stratosphere, but she’s dropped features all over the place since, most recently on the Murs & 9th Wonder song “Walk Like A God.”
Rap is starting 2016 off on the right foot with an intimate Tiny Desk concert, courtesy of the good folks at NPR. She, mentor/Jamla label head 9th Wonder, and a small backing band bring the heat with three tracks off of 2014’s Beauty And The Beast EP and plenty of shout outs to Howard U. Check out the show above.
