MP3: Psalm One – “Taming the Goddess” (Prod. by Drew Mantia)
Premiered by EARMILK, the Chicago Emcee Delivers a Heavy Loose Single Following P.O.L.Y. (Psalm One Loves You) Album
“A seasoned writer with a soulful and vulnerable style, her songwriting is multi-faceted and ultra-cultural.” – ASCAP
A witty, talented lyricist who’s not afraid to reveal personal information as well as brag about her own skills, which are certainly numerable.” – All Music
“Living proof that a female rapper can be just as badass as a male one, that ‘female’ can be dropped altogether as a qualifier so that she can just be a rapper.” – Pop Matter
“How many more intellectual rap nerds and gangster rap poseurs does she have to leave doubled over in pain before people take notice of her dopeness?”– RapReviews.com
“‘Taming the Goddess‘ is as threatening to society’s notions as it is a killer party track,” said EARMILK in their premiere of Psalm One‘s new loose single. The Chicago rapper and first lady of Rhymesayers Ent. isn’t afraid to tackle multitude of topics and issues that might make the average person squeamish. Produced by Drew Mantia, “Taming the Goddess” finds Psalm One threatening to steal a man’s girl as she embraces her own polyamorous lifestyle. Having immersed herself into polyamory over the past year or so, an added element of lushness has arrived in Psalm One’s music. It’s a thread that runs through Psalm One’s P.O.L.Y. (Psalm One Loves You) album, which debuted via Complex on Sept. 24th
Psalm One has has been making noise in the underground rap scene for nearly a decade. Says the Examiner about the seasoned emcee, “At every corner, Psalm One performs good quality rhyme-work over productions that match her dynamic personality.” The new loose single, “Taming the Goddess,” follows the release of her “Plenty of Wins” video, her Rookie Mag-debuted track “Maybe Never,” and the Okayplayer-premiered “Impatient (Just U & Us).” Psalm One recently concluded her DIY Tour, but fans in Chicago can still catch her on upcoming dates at Schuba’s and the Hideout Inn.
