On the off-chance anyone needed further proof that Rapsody should have made the recent XXL freshman cover, the JAMLA representative drops the official video for “Betty Shabazz” from the 9th Wonder Presents: Jamla Is The Squad LP directed by Brian Petchers. The clip is a stylistic homage to the wife of Malcolm X, which plays up the dignity, grace and strength often attached to discussions of Betty Shabazz and offers a subtle nod to her daughters with six muslimahs standing tall behind Rap as she rumbles through her treatise. Check the footage below to watch the official video for “Betty Shabazz” from Rapsody. Purchase the 9th Wonder Presents: JAMLA Is The Squad LP via iTunes. Stay tuned for more from Rapsody.
