Rapsody has returned with a surprise single called “12 Problems,” which plays off JAY-Z’s 2003 single “99 Problems.”
The Snow Hill, North Carolina native made the announcement via Twitter on Thursday (September 17) and revealed part of the proceeds are going to a good cause.
“My new single, ’12 Problems’ is out now and a part of ‘Reprise’ – a musical initiative uniting artists in protest against social injustice,” she wrote. “A portion of proceeds will support organizations fighting these social injustices.”

Rapsody has been laying relatively low since having to hit the pause button on her Black Woman Created This Tour with Sa-Roc in February.
The Roc Nation spitter recently contributed vocals to Public Enemy’s “Fight The Power” remix alongside Chuck D, Flavor Flav, DJ Lord, Nas, Black Thought, Questlove, YG and Enemy Radio’s Jahi. A video for the song opened up the 2020 BET Awards in June.
