Rapsody returns with a new joint, led by producer, 9th Wonder. Those of you unfamiliar with the latter should definitely check him out. His production credits are varied and span over a surprisingly long period. He’s worked with Jay Z, Destiny’s Child, and produced a wonderful album with saxophonist, Terrace Martin. He is joined by his protégé, Khrysis, and fellow contributor, Kash.
It features vocals from Moonchild which are ever so subtle in the background, and the listener is even treated to a Gil Scott Heron sample towards the end. The percussive drum beat is light and the string accompaniment is paired with occasional horn interjections.
