Rapsody (of Kooley High) - U Sparklin’
Call me old-fashioned, but I always proceed with caution when a track title doesn’t take the time to spell itself correctly. I can only let formalities like that slide on a few occasions, and thankfully whenever Rapsody drops a new track on the Booth is one of them (oh happy Thursday!). Hailing from SC, I immediately became a fan of NC neighbors Kooley High, and Rapsody’s solo project as a result. The first leak, U Sparklin’, takes listeners back to a time in music where a steady beat and sultry voice could earn you widespread respect and fame. This is no easy feat, but since Rapsody’s a member of 9th Wonder’s team, great production can meet great vocal talent, resulting in a smoothly entrancing record. With Kooley High on the rise and her latest project, Return of the B-Girl, dropping December 7, via The Booth, we’ll be hearing much more from Rapsody in the near future. And if you still can’t get your fix, be sure to keep a lookout for the Kooley crew to join our Freestyle Series very soon.
