Rapsody worked with Jay Electronica years ago on her 2013 project She Got Game. During a recent stop by the HipHopDX office, the Jamla Records MC recalled Jay’s unique approach to sending music for their collaboration “Jedi Code.”
“The first time we sent him the instrumental for the song, he emailed back the lyrics,” Rapsody said while laughing. “I was like ‘These joints read very well, but I want to hear it.’ I was reading it going crazy.”
Rapsody also noted how rare it was for her to secure a feature from Jay, who was rather selective at the time.
“The time that we worked together, he was doing a few features every now and again,” she explained. “I was skeptical or hesitant that he wouldn’t work with me because I felt like I was still early in my career.”
In addition to Jay, Rapsody’s She Got Gamefeatured guest appearances by Raekwon, Chance The Rapper, Mac Miller, Phonte and Nipsey Hussle.
