Rapsody is about to school us on the fundamentals of MCing with her upcoming mixtape. Hosted by the legendary DJ Drama, Rap is next up to appear on the pristine Gangsta Grillz series. The artwork, which was premiered by 2DopeBoyz, has her sitting on top of a basketball hoop and wearing a pair of Air Jordan Retro 11s. She also gave an explanation behind the concept of it:

“In the game of basketball, Cheryl Miller is such an iconic figure because of what she helped do for women in the game. She is one of the players who showed that the girls could play just as well as the guys, and sometimes better. She even played with the USBL for a while, which was a guys league. So, I wanted to recreate this photo as a representation that whether we are talking about the art of rhyme, deejaying, basketball, or medicine, at some point gender shouldn’t matter. In this game no matter what your gender, color, religion or what have you, it should only be about the product; it’s good or it’s not.”

Check it out above, and look for She Got Game to drop on August 20.
