It's time we check in again with Jamla recording artist Rapsody , who has been steady winning over fans with her spirited devotion to making authentic hip-hop. The North Carolina MC flows freely over the gentle vibes of "The Drums," but that doesn't mean she's not critical of the current state of affairs in the rap nation:
A lot of sex, drug usage and rappin' about wealth
Ain't no balance in this system no more, we ain't well
Ain't a rapper on the radio wit' stories to tell
Hip-Hop never died, yo, the radio failed
Now the powers with the people, wonder if they can tell
Her album, The Idea of Beautiful , is available on iTunes .
