Rapsody - Hard to Choose

  • Artist: Rapsody
  • Track: Hard to Choose
  • Producer: 9th Wonder
  • Album: Beauty & the Beast

Any recording artist who achieves a modicum of success needs to make series of difficult decisions: sell out your principles for a chance at fame and fortune, or hang on to your artistic integrity? Voice your political views or keep quiet so as not to alienate potential fans? Stay in your hometown, or try your luck in a bigger pond? At each of those crossroads (and many more), Rapsody took the more difficult path, and we can be damn glad she did. New single Choose is a monument to the Carolina native's uncompromising spirit. Jamla boss 9th Wonder mans the boards, slicing and dicing pensive keyboard and vocal samples as Rap reflects on her career to date in complex, allusive verses. This insightful, rewind-worthy jam is just one of many quality cuts to be found on the artist's next LP, Beauty & the Beast, scheduled for independent release October 7.
