Talib Kweli & Rapsody Chat About Her Influences And Relationships, Rap And Otherwise, At The “People’s Party” (Video)

You taught me the power of the microphone.

Very nice!

Nowadays, Rapsody is now a force on her own. Top-tier lyricist and artist, for certain. But it would be quite okay to judge her based on the company she keeps… because that is some POWERFUL company. Good get for the ‘cast, Kweli. I’m leaning in and listening!

In this episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh sit down with rapper and writer Rapsody. This introspective interview highlights the huge contribution this talented lyricist has made in bringing the B-Girl back to the forefront of the culture. They discuss her growing up in the tiny town of Snowhill, NC; she speaks on being largely inspired to rap from growing up listening to MC Lyte and Lauryn Hill; and she shares the profound life advice she received from Ms. Hill. Rapsody also defines why being pro-Black doesn’t translate to being anti-White.

Later Rapsody reflects on her close friendships with Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle, and the enormous loss the Hip-Hop community felt with their passing. She speaks on her regular collaborations with 9th Wonder and his Soul Council beat crew, then details every member’s signature style. She also digs into the guidance (and playful moments) she’s shared with Jay Z, and her friendships with Kendrick Lamar, DaBaby, and J.I.D.. Rapsody explains how the concept for the “Eve” album came about and responds to the notion that female fans only want to hear “songs for the ladies.” She also has wise words for the women in the game about being themselves regardless of any criticism they receive about their appearance or content.

Dzydex Speaks On Becoming A Producer & A Man On Odell’s Roundtable (Video)

I mean, I am more of a producer… a behind-the-scenes kind of guy more than on-camera talent. However, I get tempted to get interviewed every time I watch Odell do one of his guest intros. The props he gives are tops!

A lot of times the main person that can hold you back from Greatness is yourself. When I recently had Dzydex on the show he spoke about how he has grown as a music producer. He is well traveled living in places all over the world as a military brat. His production has caught the eyes and attention of people like Joe Kay of Soulection to being used for Adiddas ads in London. We talked about how he has built the relationships in this music and life game and what drives him to push forward.
