I was kind of MIA yesterday, even from checking news on my phone but the one thing I did catch was that Rapsody had signed to the ROC. I’ve been a fan of Rapsody since she was in Kooley High and 9th Wonder was only just starting to take he under his wing and push her solo career.
Rapsody‘s gone on to a lot since then and has even worked with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T., Mac Miller and more. To me and a lot of other people, she’s a veteran already but this new signing to Roc Nation is set to be a new chapter in her career.
She announced the signing yesterday during her performance at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival when she yelled “I’m Jamla/Roc Nation” and it was followed up by some social media posts about it. We’re not sure what’s the extent of her deal as of yet, it could be either a label deal, or a management deal. And for all we know so far, this whole deal can be bigger than just Rapsody, it could be more inclusive of the whole JAMLA imprint.
RAPSODY IS ON ROCNATION. #cray
