It’s been a while since Chicago rapper Psalm One’s acclaimed Rhymesayers Entertainment debut, The Death of Frequent Flyer — “My record label wants The Miseducation of Psalm One, and we’re going to make it for them,” she says — but in the meantime there’s been no shortage of her music. Psalm One put out three online mixtapes last year as part of her Woman@Work series, and you can find her latest track, “Juke Me,” from the forthcoming Get in the Van Vol. 3 here.
Psalm One stopped by The Interview Show recently to talk about her career, growing up in Chicago, her love of the “idea of Oprah” and more. She’s performing at The Hideout Sept. 2. Video is below.
And the next Interview Show is Friday, Aug. 5, at The Hideout, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. $8. Guests will be:
- MARC MARON, comedian and host of “WTF With Marc Maron” podcast
