Rapsody Gives The Black Woman’s Perspective on Debut LP Laila’s Wisdom

Fans have been waiting but hip hop artist Rapsody delivered on her highly anticipated debut album Laila’s Wisdom. The album is the follow-up to 2016’s Crown EP and another release through 9th Wonder’s Jamla Records.

The Roc Nation artist gives views as her views from a black woman’s perspective from this generation.  Rapsody does not bite her tongue as she speaks about the affects of police brutality, love, and blackness.  The North Carolina native shows she is top tier in the game.

The album is well crafted with A-list features throughout the album.  Big names such as Anderson .Paak (“Nobody,” “Oooweee”), GQ(“Ridin’”), BJ the Chicago Kid (“Black & Ugly,” “Knock On My Door”), Busta Rhymes (“You Should Know”) and Kendrick Lamar (“Power”) definitely helps.  Even with the big name features Rapsody holds her own and is not out shined by any means.  She has bars and is sassy with it.

Laila’s Wisdom is 14-tracks of soul, grit, and funk.  Production has been two years in the making from veteran top producers Khrysis9th WonderTerrace Martin and Young Guru.  The chemistry of the album is flawless and flows seamlessly.


This is real hip-hop, so it feels so good to hear a refreshing take of what hip-hop is all about. Laila’s Wisdom is not your regular run of the mill album.  The expectations were very high and she exceeded them.

Rapsody is Lauryn Hill, and Bahamadia all rolled in one but with her own individual persona. Sit back and relax and listen to Laila’s Wisdom below. This is real music for your ears.  Stream and be sure to purchase Laila’s Wisdom to support the project.  You will not be disappointed, I promise!
