Rapsody – ‘Jedi Code’ (Feat. Phonte & Jay Electronica) (Prod. 9th Wonder)
Rapsody recruits Phonte and Jay Electronica for a high-powered collaboration, ‘Jedi Code.’
The three emcees tackle a 9th Wonder beat anchored around a vocal sample, arguably one of 9th’s best beats of 2013. The song starts with Phonte’s verse, and the veteran North Carolina emcee drops serious bars. “I tried to tell ’em rap s–t is like ball/You either built for the game or you’re not: You can’t coach height.”
Rapsody takes the middle verse, and she opens her verse by paying homage to Jay Electronica’s verse on ‘Exhibit A.’ Her rhymes pack a punch as she rides the 9th instrumental. “Life a gamble hope you ni–as all is rolling right,” she advises.
Meanwhile, the third verse comes from Jay Elect, one week removed from his last guest appearance on the widely-discussed ‘Control.’ Out the gate, the New Orleans native comes correct, saying “The fans need an oxygen mask for every stanza.” One of the craziest lines in the entire song comes when he says “Vatican preaching Jesus then they creep up with the swine/Enslave the people of God and have them sweep up at the shrine.”
Rapsody has been steadily dropping heat for several months now, and now the release of her long-awaited mixtape, ‘She Got Game,’ is upon us. The mixtape, hosted by DJ Drama, has features from Wale, Ab-Soul, and Nipsey Hussle, among others. Check out the new song below.
