Charlamagne Tha God Says Rapsody Is The 'Best Rapper Out Period


Rapsody has undoubtedly proven her rhyming prowess over the years with albums such as 2012's The Idea Of Beautiful and the Grammy Award-nominated Laila's Wisdom premiered in 2017. But it was 2019's EVE project that firmly held her place among Hip Hop's elite and established her fierce force in the industry.

Charlamagne Tha God appears to appreciate the North Carolina MC as much as her supporters. During an episode of The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy were talking to author Sister Souljah about her latest book, Life After Death: A Novel "The Coldest Winter Ever Book 2" when Yee asked what female rappers she likes right now.

As Sister Souljah revealed how her young nieces put her on to lots of contemporary rappers like Young M.A, Charlamagne chimed in with, "I think you would really like Rapsody Sister Souljah. She's from North Carolina. I think you would really, really, really dig it. She's a huge, huge fan of The Coldest Winter Ever. True lyricist. I think she's the best rapper out — period."

Rapsody released EVE to great reviews in August 2019, with HipHopDX granting it an excellent, perfect 5.0 rating. The 16-track project beautifully paid tribute to 15 powerful Black women who played some role in Rapsody's life, including Tupac Shakur's mother Afeni, Nina Simone, Aaliyah, and Oprah Winfrey.

The project was so potent; it was turned into an English course at both Ohio State and the University of North Carolina (UNC). In April 2019, Rap shared an Instagram photo from UNC grad student Tyler Bunzey who revealed he was helming a class called "Black Womanist Criticism and Rapsody's EVE."

Although EVE wasn't nominated for a Grammy that year, Rapsody still walked away with the title of "Lyricist of the Year" at the 2020 BET Awards last October, proof of her innate rapping skills.
