First of all happy new year to all of the readers out there! 2010 was rough on everyone, but now it's 2011 and new beginnings and big things will happen! At first I was about to do a Christmas season ending blog, but I figured I would bring in the new year with some hot things that are going on. People have been saying or complaining about the lack of female emcees, or hating on Nicki Minaj. Well, females have really been on their grind lately, and so much as hit the surface at full force. That I had to make a new years special edition blog pt. 2
Speaking of big things! Late around the holiday season of 2010, a good friend of mine UCME2, hit me up and said check out this mixtape and she was bumpin' it all day! So she sent me the link, and I checked it out. Now let me tell yall, Rapsody: Return of The B-Girl, should be considered one of the dopest albums of the year. I don't know how an album this good is available for free! Hell I felt like Paypalin' Rapsody some money, just to let her now that I would of bought the album regardless! LOL! Straight out of North Carolina, this female emcee comes at you with true lyrics, and you have to playback her verses and say damn did she say that? Or just trip out over how she flowed on the records. I mean a brotha couldn't stop noddin'! The album featured collabos with: Big Daddy Kane, Rah Digga, Skyzoo, Laws, Thee Tom Hardy, Mac Miller, King Mez, and Phi Ade. Also production from the infamous 9th Wonder, Krysis, Ka$h, E. Jones, Amp, and Eric G. Check out DJBooth.net for the Return of the B-Girl album, also her webiste and Twitter for more info! Much respect and success to you Rapsody!
