Rapsody Partners With Busta Rhymes on Stirring Track ‘You Should Know’ [LISTEN]
Rapsody has been dropping gem after gem this summer. Her latest song, “You Should Know," was produced by 9th Wonder and features a guest verse from Busta Rhymes.
On the song, which chops up Goodie Mob's "Cell Therapy," Rapsody spits braggadocious bars like, “Flow so much I need lifeguards / Not like Rikers, them some whole new bars / Influenced by many but I'm a whole new star, yeah / There's levels to this but I'm a whole new floor / They talking keys to success but I'm a whole new door.”
Midway through, the song changes tempo and production, and we hear the gruff voice of Bussa-Buss where he salutes the North Carolina wordsmith on her lyrical acumen.
The song is setting up Rapsody's release of her new project called Laila’s Pain, which arrives on Sept. 22. This is her first full-length LP since joining Roc Nation in 2016. Musically, this will be her follow-up to her 2012 debut album, The Idea of Beautiful.
