MP3: Psalm One – “Maybe Never” ft. My Gold Mask

The RAPPERCHICKS Emcee Debuts Her Latest Single With An Interview via Rookie Mag, Announces P.O.L.Y. Album via HipHopDX


Critical Praise:

“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?”–

The Song and News:

Brooding synths and seductive lyrics of dark romance make up Chicago emcee Psalm One‘s latest single “Maybe Never.” “I don’t want to be your guardian, I just want to treat you like my baby and love it,” she raps. Premiered with an interview via Rookie Mag, the 5 minute track symbolizes what Psalm One does best, creating music with provocative lyrical content that immediately captivates the listener. “Maybe Never” features  My Gold Mask and is from Psalm One’s forthcoming album P.O.L.Y. (Psalm One Loves You). The album title alludes to the philosophy of polyamory, the state of being in love or romantically involved with more than one person at the same time. Announced with the tracklist via HipHopDXP.O.L.Y. is set to drop September 25th.

Psalm One’s “Maybe Never” follows the release of the Okayplayer-debuted track “Impatient (Just U & Us),” which featured fellow RAPPERCHICKS member Angelenah (fka Angel Davanport). Prior to releasing “Impatient (Just U & Us)” and “Maybe Never,” Psalm One teamed up with fellow Chi-Town rapper ProbCause for their collaborative ZRO FOX EP, which received praise from Complex and Consequence of Sound. Psalm One is currently headlining her DIY Tour with support from Angelenah, Fluffy, and the Palmer Squares throughout September and October, hitting various festivals and venues in the Midwest and Northeast.
