After killing a slew of features and one-offs for a couple years since 2014’s Beauty And The Beast EP, North Carolina MC Rapsody is back with a surprise EP called Crown. At 10 tracks it plays more like a mixtape or full-length, and it certainly boasts album-worthy features with the brilliant Raphael Saadiq, steadily rising Anderson .Paak, and a rejuvenated Ab-Soul making guest appearances. Rapdiddy serves up some lyrically sound black pride, personal introspection, and hopeful healing over boom-bap from 9th Wonder, Khrysis, and Nottz among others. New Rapsody is never a bad thing, and she’s always been nice since her days in Kooley High, but she’s in her prime right now. Check it out below along with the video for the title track.
