The DJBooth

is proud to announce that

Rapsody

will be rocking on

our stage

for this year's

SXSW

music festival in Austin. Rapsody is the new force in hip hop, blazing the trail for a new generation of emcees, showcasing effortless lyrical mastery while celebrating a hip0hop renaissance. "Hip hop in its essence is real; I'm still hearing every rhyme."

The protégé of Grammy Award-winning producer 9th Wonder, Rapsody is the first lady of North Carolina super crew Kooley High and one of the first artists signed to Jamla Records/It's A Wonderful World Music Group. Her style is polished and distinct, and her wordplay and flow are unparalleled in both delivery and execution. As she continues to strive to contend with her hip hop predecessors like Jay-Z and Mos Def, Rapsody is already undeniably one of the strongest and most promising forces in today's hip hop culture.

Return of the B-Girl

Have you previously performed at SXSW?

No, I have never performed at SXSW. This is be my first time performing and my first official showcase.

What are you looking forward to most about the experience?

I'm excited about a number of things. I have heard so many great things about SXSW. I'm really looking forward to performing for the first time, and I'm excited to share the stage with many of my peers in the game that I too am a fan of.

The experience of having so many different artists, and different genres of music in one place, is like a Candy Land for artist and fans alike.

What fellow artists are you most excited to see perform?

I'm excited to see Nas, Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T., Freeway, Schoolboy Q, T.I., Mobb Deep, Nikkiya, Laws, and Torae, to name a few.
