During June’s Black Music Month, I had the honor of interviewing Marlanna Evans who’s known to the world as the three-time Grammy nominated Hip-Hop emcee, Rapsody. Rapsody is known for her lyrical bars, cadence, direct openness, and beyond. She’s been a professional rapper for over a decade and continues to reign supreme.  Rapsody recently dropped her newest album, “Please Don’t Cry”, this past May 17th, 2024.

Rapsody graciously sat down with me for an ERS+ a phone interview prior to her performance. We talked about her career path thus far, her album  “Please Don’t Cry” and memories about why she enjoys performing in front of a Boston audience. She shared thoughts about how covid assisted her creative process. From the cover art, to making new friendships like the one she formed with Erykha Badu, and overall growth she forged, Rapsody continues finding herself and provides first hand testimony within her music projects.

Rapsody will be performing in Boston, Massachusetts for BAMSFest aka  Boston Arts & Music Soul Fest June 29th and June 30th at Franklin Park Playstead FieldFor more information about this festival an other scheduled local and national acts go to
