Rapsody (2)

Real Name:
Marlanna Evans
Profile:
Rapsody is known for her intricate rhyme patterns, metaphors, and wordplay. She cites Jay-Z, 9th Wonder, Mos Def, Lauryn Hill, and MC Lyte as the biggest influences on her music. Her production is primarily handled by The Soul Council, which is the team of in-house producers on Jamla/It's A Wonderful World Music Group. The producers that comprise The Soul Council are Khrysis, E. Jones (3), Fatin "10" Horton, Ka$h Don't Make Beats, AMP, Eric G. and 9th Wonder (himself).

Rapsody's philosophy is "Culture Over Everything," referring to the culture of hip-hop music. She describes this phrase in an interview with Vibe Magazine where she says, "To me, it’s about culture more so then money or anything. I make music for the people of the culture we’re in; that comes first. If you touch the people first, the rest just falls into place. That’s what it means to me, just preserving and respecting the culture."

Her biggest placement prior to her career as an artist is her guest appearance on Kendrick Lamar's "Complexion" (A Zulu Love), which appears on his third studio album, To Pimp a Butterfly, that was released in March 2015. Since early 2016, Rapsody's first major feud as a female hip hop artist is with fellow female rapper Nicki Minaj.
