Rapsody is a female hip-hop artist from North Carolina, who was also featured on one of the most famous tracks “Complexion” off of Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly. Laila’s Wisdom is not only highly political, but it is sonically dynamic, with soulful gospel introductions, beats to twerk to and features of popular artists such as; Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak, Black Thought, Musiq Soulchild, Busta Rhymes, and many more!
This is Rapsody’s description of Laila’s Wisdom on her website;
“My new album, “Laila’s Wisdom” hones in on a particular family value passed down from my Grandmother, Laila; “Give me my flowers while I can still smell them”. Through this album, I hope to pass these flowers on to you.”
Rapsody blesses’ us with the imagery of flower crowns on black and brown girls living in cotton slums and employs a unique urban feminist masculinity in all of her bars. This album is storytelling at it’s finest. Essentially, Laila’s Wisdom is lyrical and auditory Black woman soulmagic.
WFNP’s Top Tracks off of this album: Power, Chrome (ooh), Black & Ugly, and Nobody!
