Rapsody is a Grammy nominated emcee. With several projects, a critically acclaimed debut album and the lone guest rap feature on Kendrick Lamar’s "To Pimp A Butterfly", she is quickly establishing herself as one of the best emcees of this generation. Her debut album, "The Idea of Beautiful", received rave reviews with XXL Magazine stating “it might just be one of the best Hip-Hop debuts of late.” In just a short time, Rapsody has worked with some of the biggest artists in the business, including Chance The Rapper, Erykah Badu, Raekwon, Anderson .Paak, Estelle, Kendrick Lamar, Busta Rhymes and Mac Miller, among others.
In 2016, she put out her second EP, "Crown", while also inking a deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation. Rapsody's first release for the label was her sophomore effort, 2017's Laila's Wisdom. It received a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album, and highlight "Sassy" was nominated in the category of Best Rap Song. The next year, in addition to a role in the Mass Appeal documentary series "Rapture", Rapsody contributed several tracks to the 9th Wonder-produced compilation "Jamla Is the Squad II". Among other songs on the comp, she traded bars with J. Cole on the bouncy throwback beat of "Sojourner" and the horn-driven "REDBLUE," which also featured JID.
"Eve", Rapsody's third proper studio album, arrived in 2019 with Queen Latifah, GZA, JID and J. Cole among the guests. It entered the Billboard 200 at number 76, almost 50 slots higher than her previous LP. Into 2020, Rapsody added to her high-profile guest appearances on tracks by Robert Glasper, John Legend and TeaMarr, among others and issued a remix of the Eve cut "Afeni" featuring D Smoke. "Afeni [Remix]" and assorted Eve tracks also formed the basis of five themed EPs with titles such as "Wisdom" and "Soul Sistah".
