Rapsody - Laila's Wisdom 2LP

Laila's Wisdom is the Grammy-nominated second full-length effort from North Carolina emcee Marlanna Evans aka Rapsody. Inspired by her maternal grandmother, Rapsody's style here is polished and distinct, and her wordplay and flow are unparalleled in both delivery and execution. As she strives to contend with her hip hop predecessors, like Jay-Z and Mos Def, Rapsody is already undeniably one of the strongest and most promising forces of her generation. Includes the Grammy-nominated track "Sassy" and guest appearances by Kendrick Lamar (who she previously worked with on To Pimp a Butterfly), Anderson Paak, Busta Rhymes, Lance Skiiiwalker, Black Thought, BJ the Chicago Kid, and Musiq Soulchild.
