o many adjectives. Rapsody
is raw. Rapsody is an MC. Rapsody is Hip-Hop. Recently, the North Carolina narrator dropped her anticipated endeavor, Laila’s Wisdom.
Named for her Big Mama — from whom she learned many valuable lessons — the album serves as an effort in excellence. It demonstrates that an innate essence will always trump a fleeting notoriety.
From amorous to angst, Laila’s Wisdom champions the art of metaphor. A treat, it challenges the listener with life’s complexities. Beckoning back to Goodie Hip-Hop, “You Should Know” finds Rap on her shit. Twisted sixteens from the Jamla / Roc Nation spitter spotlights everything from perception versus reality to dodging clowns and reinforcing self-worth.
The legendary lyricist, Busta Rhymes also blesses the 9th Wonder symphony. Thank you, Rap!
