AUDIO: Rapsody – Ibtihaj Feat. D’Angelo & GZA MP3 + LYRICS

EveIn latest talks about females in rap, Rapsody was one name echoed throughout the conversations. The emcee from North Carolina is renowned for her lyrical skills and has continued to rise as an artist throughout her career. Rapsody provided fans on Friday from her upcoming album Eve with her recent single “Ibtihaj.” She enlisted the help of veteran R&B artists D’Angelo and GZA member of the Wu-Tang Clan to create a song that embraces the essence of hip hop itself.

Rapsody’s Eve is scheduled to be released this month, and Essence was earlier told by the rapper that this is a women empowerment project. “It’s my ode to the females in my life that made me who I am, but I understand it’s larger than me at the same moment,” she said. “It’s more about black women’s village. I feel like we all have comparable experiences and stories and inspirations that are very comparable. My last record, it’s been for me. That’s all private stuff you know you can listen to and perhaps connect, but for me it was a lot of it.

Quotable Lyrics

Hands buried the man and they raised the son to reign
That’s a play on words, they say herb ain’t all the same
Slaves in prison and they some unchained
While everybody in my gang a star DJ Preem
Screaming through the sun roof, “Money Still Ain’t a Thing”
While I’m spending small bank, asking “Where is my change?”
