Listen to Rapsody’s Uplifting New Song “Fire” Produced By 9th Wonder

The hip hop community was already outspoken about the possibility of a Donald Trump presidency, but now that it’s upon us, the politically, socially and emotionally charged music will likely continue. As America tries to cope with and understand what’s coming once Trump is sworn in at the top of 2017, Rapsody has released a record called “Fire.” It  is a unifying song about withstanding what’s coming.

The song’s tranquil nature is already encouraging, but Rapsody’s lyrics–“Ain’t no fear in my heart! I only fear God / Feel like Beast Mode with the ball / World on our back but we still gon’ go super hard for you all”–serve as a reminder that regardless of who sits in the Oval Office, under-served and oppressed communities won’t get anywhere by throwing in the towel.

One of music’s many purposes is to uplift, and with “Fire,” Rapsody does just that. Listen to it below.
