Rapsody drops new album, Eve. Stream it here.
North Carolina rapper, Rapsody is the lady on everyone’s lips. Her promised album, Eve has finally landed and it’s everything empowering and insightful as we all expected. One very impressive thing about the album is, Rapsody isn’t rapping for clout or fame, she found all that when her previous album, Laila’s Wisdom was nominated for Best Rap Album at the Grammy Awards. Rather, Rapsody is simply rapping to glorify black women who deserve praise all over the world. How selfless is that.
The female emcee’s new album simply blows the trumpet for some of the most inspiring black women who no one seems to celebrate enough. Each track on the 16-track album is named after the women they are written for. About the album she said “this is my love letter to all black women”. In an interview with Billboard, she said the idea of the album came to her in the summer of 2018, and she thought of not just celebrating female emcees but also the people she’s inspired by. She said;
“It made me think of who I’m influenced by, I talk about female rappers, but I also talk about Cicely Tyson and Phylicia Rashad and Nikki Giovanni. Throughout my career, I’ve always talked about black women — not just female rappers — and how much they’ve inspired me and made me who I am. This is my love letter to not only myself, but all black women.”
The 16 track album celebrates 15 notable black women and features many artists from D’Angelo to Queen Latifa to J. Cole.
