If you’re rocking a fitted, now would be a good time to remove it: as Rapsody puts it on her new single, “You’re in the presence of Kingship.” Whereas its predecessor, Never Know, was a team effort, this cut finds the spotlight fixed firmly on the First in Flight State phenom. Over DJ Premier‘s deftly superimposed samples, Rap endeavors to show and prove her worthiness of the crown, delivering verses laced with pointed references to the reigning generation of rap royalty. On the hook, Primo showcases his skills behind the wheels of steel, flipping snippets from Game‘s Born in the Trap and Run-DMC’s Peter Piper. Feeling it? Then be sure to cop Rapsody’s She Got Game LP next Tuesday (8/20), hosted by DJ Drama.
