Rapsody Signs To Jay Z's Roc Nation
Hov and Roc Nation welcome their newest member, North Carolina MC, Rapsody.
It's official! Jay Z has given his seal of approval by recruiting North Carolina MC Rapsody. The rapper threw up the Roc sign in announcement of her new affiliation during her set at the 2016 Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, which was live streamed on Tidal.
"I'm Jamla/Roc Nation," Rapsody said during her set. "Jamla" is a reference to the indie label, Jamla Records, that the rapper was signed to in 2008. While definitely an exciting step for the 28-year-old, it is still unclear to what capacity Rapsody is signed to the label Roc Nation has two divisions: one for artists including J. Cole and Rihanna, who are directly signed and the other division is for management. Some of the artists on the management side include Fabolous, Big Sean, and Meek Mill. Regardless of which division Rapsody is affiliated with, this is a very good look for the rapper, who's built up a decade-long rap sheet.
The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival concluded July 16. Rapsody headlined the event along with Fabolous, Nas, and Talib Kweli.
Congrats to Rapsody on the new signing.
