Rapsody remakes Gza classic “Liquid Swords” with blazing new Gza verse and D’Angelo vocals

Ordinarily, I would urge all new emcees to avoid rhyming over classic samples, but Rapsody absolutely ROCKS over the classic sample Gza originally rhymed over on “Liquid Swords” (the title track to his debut album). D’Angelo also adds vocal fire to the track, although he does not appear in the extremely well-directed video above (Mary J. Blige and Roxanne Shante make cameos though!). Now all I need to know is “what does Ibtihaj mean?”

Edit: Found the answer on Okayplayer.com: “The song is named after Ibtihaj Muhammad, the fencer who made news for being the first Muslim American woman to wear a hijab while competing for the United States in the 2016 Summer Olympics.”
