Day & A Dream #BreakoutQueen Rapsody has arguably been the most consistent femcee out for a hot minute. With each ensuing project, her lyricism has grown more and more, and the tracks themselves have gotten better and better. While it seems like only yesterday that her first mixtape Return of the B-Girl dropped, Rapsody is now on the cusp of releasing her debut album, The Idea of Beautiful. And to prepare fans and new listeners alike for what’s to come, Rapsody made available the album’s first single, “Non-Fiction.”

JAMLA mainstay and longtime Rapsody collaborator 9th Wonder provides the instrumentation for “Non-Fiction,” combining crashing drums with a riding beat that’s sure to get you moving. Rapsody brags on the track, dropping such quotable lines as “True, I been in the booth/ Yeah, I kill it on the daily/ Young representer’/ I’ma baby of the 80s” and literally making references to many staples of the 80s throughout the song. Throw in the additions of Raheem DeVaughn on the hook and TDE underdog Ab-Soul absolutely crashing his verse, and “Non-Fiction” sounds like all kinds of a problem. While my guess is the song is too conscious sounds too much like old-school to really get radio spins, my hope is that “Non-Fiction” gets some accompanying visuals soon to further spread word about it.

Rapsody’s The Idea of Beautiful is slated to arrive August 28th.
