 Grand Nationxl/JAMLA recording artist Ian Kelly keeps his foot on the gas with "Soul of a Man", fresh off of last December's collaboration release of "Zion V: The Ballad of Charles Douthit" the latest installment in a series from the JAMLA records General 9th Wonder. "Soul of a Man" is a selection from Ian Kelly's upcoming project "Kells is D.E.A.D" (Determined Evolving Ascending Destined). Reminiscent of 1991's De La Soul album titled "De La Soul is Dead", Kelly is using his art to show his transformation/evolution where as the 3 Plugs refer to the death of the "D.A.I.S.Y." (Da Inner Sound, Y'all) age, or a distancing from several cultures including hippies and mainstream Hip Hop. The sound scape for "Soul of a Man" stays in the JAMLA camp with producer and Soul Council member Eric G representing Seattle respectively. Eric David Gabouer, better known as producer Eric G, has been working with Rapsody and JAMLA Records for close to a decade.  Stay tuned for more from Ian Kelly and keep an eye out for "Kells is D.E.A.D." dropping 1-29-21.

As Rapsody inches closer to releasing her third studio album EVE, the North Carolina-bred MC has dropped a new visual for “Ibtihaj,” which was unveiled at New York City’s Times Square on Friday (August 2). Produced by 9th Wonder, the track also features heavy hitters D’Angelo and Wu-Tang Clan’s GZA, who appear in the video alongside Mary J. Blige and Roxanne Shanté. According to the press release, the song’s title pays tribute to Ibtihaj Muhammad, a member of the United States national fencing team. In 2016, she became the first Muslim American woman to wear a hijab while competing for the United States in the Olympics. The lyrics revolve around having confidence in yourself and always being fearless. Rapsody's latest "EVE" is expected to arrive on August 23.
