Rapsody Crushes NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert [VIDEO]
The She Got Game creator started things off with "Godzilla" as 9th Wonder manned the DJ controller with his live band that included a saxophonist, keyboardist and guitar player.
"These days only God is iller / You couldn't shine with Dilla / Even if Shyne was with ya," she rapped. "Thought you was a bad boy 'til you met Godzilla"
Afterwards Rapsody moved into "The Man," her 2014 hit off of Beauty and the Beast.
According to the Jamla signee, the song is "dedicated to men and little boys that grew up without a father figure in their life...and have to grow up really fast and lose their innocence."
"I don't hear this story told enough," she said. "That's not to say there aren't a lot of good black fathers, cause there are a lot of good black fathers," she added.
The 27-year-old rhymer finished her performance with "Hard to Choose," a song crafted to be different than the status quo. "I grew up on Lauryn HIll, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, Jean Grae. All of them are different. All had different styles. It showed you all sides of what's sexy and beautiful in a woman."
"I'm still that rapper that your favorite rapper scared to rap after," she rapped over melodic performance by her backing band.
