Rapsody delivers an excellent performance for NPR's Tiny Desk concert series.
The NPR Tiny Desk Concert usually sticks to indie rock acts and that ilk, but they are increasingly veering into the world of hip hop. 2014 spawned T-Pain's legendary Tiny Desk concert, 2015 brought The Internetto the NPR "stage," and the top of 2016 has Rapsody (aka your favorite rapper's favorite female rapper) performing a trio of songs from her Beauty and The Beast EP -- "Godzilla," "The Man" and "Hard To Choose."
Backed by a skilled instrumental crew known as The Storm Troopers -- sax, bass, keys, and 9th Wonder (!) on the MPC -- Rapsody can do no wrong. Rapsody and 9th Wonder both hail from North Carolina and have collaborated multiple times to date. Always good to see 9th Wonder around.
