Rapsody Enlists Mary J. Blige, GZA and Roxanne Shanté For "Ibtihaj" Video

Rapsody has officially unveiled the first video from her upcoming "EVE" album, which is expected to arrive on August 23. 

Titled "Ibtihaj," the visual pays tribute to Ibtihaj Muhammad who became the first Muslim American woman to wear a hijab while competing for the United States in the 2016 Olympics.

GZA — who contributes to the track alongside the elusive D'Angelo — stars in the video with Roxanne Shanté, Mary J. Blige and several women rocking vibrant hijabs. 

"Ibtihaj" features production from 9th Wonder and reimagines GZA's "Liquid Swords" classic.
