With several projects, a critically acclaimed debut album in 2012, and the lone guest rap feature on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly, she is quickly establishing herself as one of the best emcees of this generation. The Idea of Beautiful was her debut album and XXL quoted that, “it might just be one of the best Hip-Hop debuts of late.” In just a short time, she has worked with some of the biggest legends and newcomers in the business, ranging from the likes of Erykah Badu, Raekwon, Big Daddy Kane, and Marsha Ambrosius to Estelle, Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, and Big K.R.I.T., to name a few.
2017 was Rapsody’s biggest year yet, as she solidified her place in songwriting and music with the release of Laila’s Wisdom. The project went on to earn her a nomination for Best Rap Song, and made Rapsody the only female nominee for Best Rap Album at the 60th GRAMMY Awards– and only the 5th ever in the category’s 23-year history.
Sa-Roc has carved out her own lane through a combination of airtight wordplay and intelligent concepts. Over the course of her illustrious career, she’s released a series of independent releases, performed alongside the likes of Talib Kweli, Dead Prez and Atmosphere, and she’s one of the few MC’s to perform regularly as a feature artist with The Roots, all around the country. She landed an underground hit in 2014 with “The Who?” featuring David Banner, before signing to Rhymesayers Entertainment and touring with label-mate Brother Ali. Then she made waves in February 2018 with the release of her single, “Forever” (5.5M+ streams), before releasing the charged follow-up single, “Goddess Gang” (1.2M+ streams) in October. A voice Okayplayer.com proclaimed “one of the most formidable microphone mavens in the game,” Sa-Roc is preparing to release her Rhymesayers Entertainment full-length debut in the Spring of 2020.
