Ceaseless Jamla representer Rapsody has released the Deluxe Edition of her brand new album, The Idea of Beautiful, exclusively via The DJBooth.

Bonus tracks on the Deluxe Edition include the 9th Wonder-produced Thunder and Beautiful Music featuring Childish Gambino. A portion of the album sales will be used to purchase donations for the children of South Africa.
This will surprise absolutely no one familiar with the movement Jamla has going on, but Big Remo’s “I’m Back” is motherfucking doper than a Bogota stash house. And if you’re not familiar then you’re about to be; either way, I highly recommend turning the volume the fuck up.
If you can’t tell by the multiple f-bombs, I’m feeling “I’m Back”. As always Khrysis comes though on the instrumental, dropping a beat that sounds seriously Dilla influenced with some southern soul spin. And in no way am I trying to dimish Remo’s rhymes, the man’s as solid on the mic as ever…but holy sweet baby jesus Rapsody killed her verse. Just First 48ed those bars. On the real, Rapsody’s quickly becoming my favorite young emcee.
Raleigh, N.C. rhymesayer Big Remo has come together with The DJBooth to offer his latest street album, Sleepwalkers, for streaming and digital purchase.
