    NC's history of dope artist ? There's a few but lets not go overboard.

  • nsparks923

    This album is nice. Very nice. Production is really good and Rapsody got mad skills for a female. Not sure what some of you cats are talking about. Shits cold.

    The art of rhyming is a dying craft because so called M.C.s don't crush mics no more. These rappers are so concerned about whether I'm witty or not and this rhymes with this word. Fuck that! Concepts, abstractness, song composition, hook placement, inflection and fucking deep thought and meaning are over looked. I'm not talking about for every song humor is needed to balance shit out. Why are cats making long ass songs with no replay value? People record 20 songs and place that shit on a c.d.and say here it is. Disorganized shit all over the place, wack songs but no meaning to the overall theme. No cohesion whatsoever!!!! I'm not talking about Rapsody's cd but wack ass projects in general. I want people to read this shit and study the craft more man. We play too much with this music that we claim we love c'mon man!!!!! I ride with 9th all day, but we need more consistent verses and concepts without all the pussyfooting. Im using 9th as an example because his label is at the forefront to bringing respectability back to the culture. Don't front cats know about N.C.'s history of dope artists and Hip Hop and if you don't you better research that shit. This don't have anything to do with hating I'm just a fan first and an artist who's feed the fuck up with subpar shit under the guise of Hip Hop or good music in general.

    Im from NC and everybody give 9th his props on the production tip, hell you got too. But why he chose the artist he chose, is a constant topic. FYI, I don't rap, just a fan. The nigga signed THEE TOM HARDY. C'mon, you telling me he's better than avg ?

  • BlackOreilly

    The production, of course will be on point. But, all 9th artist are GARBAGE. Let's be honest. There intentions are good, but their flow is mad weak. Rhapsody is no exception. There's no way in hell she should be rapping over 9th's beats.

    This album should be on point. -D.Scott

  • Jemerson Ripley

    If you are a true hip-hop fan (not rap, there's a difference), then you will definitely know what the Idea of Beautiful is. Believe me, you need to GET FAMILIAR with the true essence and do your research........JAMLA is comin'.......

  • ThatswhatImsaying

    All yall hatin' just because she's a girl......thats sad B...She can RAP.....period....and yall dont like it.....plus half of yall wanna rap on 9th beats anyway...and yall just mad it aint yall.....cop the album and SHUT UP

    Rapsody is NOT a good rapper. I love 9th & his producers but most the rappers on his label SUCK!! I fcks wit Skyzoo, Remo & Tom Hardy. The rest of em suck! Rapsody rhyme off-key off beat. She doesn't hold my attention. The beats are hot but her rhymes are very forgettable!

      Her style has by grown leaps and bounds since then. E.S.T. was the last KH project that featured her on most songs. That was 2 years ago. A lot can and has happened since.

      Ive been listening to Kooley High for a while and she is easily the weakest of the 3 rappers. I have the hardest time trying to comprehend how shes blowing up and not the other two.
