I had been waiting for this release for a long time, and I’m so glad Rapsody released her mixape following her successful features on Kendrick Lamar and Anderson. Paak’s highly sucessful records. Her verse on “Complexion” last year was one of the best verses of 2015. Kicking off with a Beyoncé sampled track produced by the legendary 9th Wonder, Rapsody shows prowess but not domination. Nonetheless, it’s great hip-hop with an even greater message, stressing the subjects of female-empowerment and inclusion/togetherness that dominated the best albums of 2016.
