Video: Rapsody – Thank You Very Much [@rapsodymusic]


John Cusack said in High Fidelity that one day he wanted to date a musician and land somewhere in the liner notes of her new album. Rapsody ends up making that statement just a bit more factual in her “Thank You Very Much” video off of She Got Game. After finding herself strolling the streets […]

My remarks on ScHoolboy Q’s OXYmoron remain largely the same, a strong presence for Q that has its moments of being a dark Los Angeles gangsta rap album. “Studio” however is one of the few detractions much like “Sex Drive” and “Fantasy” from Habits & Contradictions & Setbacks respectively that show Q has a knack […]
