With her Gangsta Grillz tape just hours away from release, Jamla Records rhymesayer Rapsody has liberated one last standout cut to whet fans’ appetites. Label boss 9th Wonder mans the boards on Jedi Code, pairing grimy organ loops with sampled yodeling—yes, yodeling—as the First in Flight State flame-spitter trades verses with two upper-echelon guest lyricists. 9th’s former Little Brother colleague, Phonte, turns in an aggressive opening 16, and the elusive Jay Electronica (fresh off his slept-on contribution to Big Sean‘s Control) delivers some characteristically intricate bars on the back. Has this appetizer left you hungry for more? Then keep it locked; when the DJ Drama-hosted She Got Game drops later today, it’ll be available for streaming and download right here in the Booth.
