Rapsody was on the BET cypher and Team BackPack freestyling displaying her rhyming Skills.
Rapsody said “I put my energy into the people that really love this culture…and that’s how you fight.”If Rapsody could do a repeat on any 2 songs she would do Lauryn Hill “Tell Him” and Her song “Hard to Choose”.
A Question was asked “What Project are you most Proud of? Rapsody said “Beauty in the Beast,”
I think Rapsody inspires little black girls because she want them to feel special and inspired. She want to be who people could look up too.
