Female Emcee’s are hard to come by in an industry filled with the opposite sex. But in this case, it’s not hard to deny the talent behind the beauty.
Rapsody pops back up with a track produced by 9th Wonder.
As the First Lady of Jamla Records, Rapsody has found herself in the midst of issue’s that have become all too familiar with females who want to be a part of this industry – situations in which the men don’t have to, ya dig?
In this track titled “Hard To Choose”, she spits:
When you rap this well/A lot of rappers catch feelings/ We all want the best/Don’t let a female kill ’em/Hard to choose culture over fame/You just want to be set and take care of all your fame/It don’t make you/But it’d be cool to have money like Wayne.
Rapsody’s flow has been compared and influenced by the likes of Ms. Lauryn Hill & MC Lyte. In turn she has found herself paying homage to them in this track:
Being super lyrical/Or slowing it down/Will they understand the metaphors?/ And how they compound?…The joints y’all trippin’ on is so easy and average/And the ones I respect/All got that gift mastered/I don’t want to compromise my set-self for a Master/But it’s so, so hard to choose.
With verses like these, there’s no doubt that no matter what challenges Rapsody faces, this North Carolina native will continue to dominate the game and stay on top of the female-emcee food chain.
