Rapsody ft. D’Angelo & GZA: Ibtihaj

A very welcome return for Rapsody as she delivers a brand new video, the first from her upcoming album. For Ibtihaj, the Snow Hill MC has drawn on inspiration from a 90’s classic, namely sampling GZA’s Liquid Swords, as well as getting the Wu Tang legend himself to drop a verse. There is more vocal assistance too from D’Angelo, as well as cameos from Mary J Blige and Roxanne Shante. The song is named in honour of Ibtihaj Muhammad, who was the first Muslim woman to wear a hijab while representing the US at the Olympics. Ibtihaj is produced by 9th Wonder and it’s taken from Eve, which is due for release on 23 August.
