Kendrick Lamar, Black Thought and More Featured on Rapsody’s Upcoming ‘Laila’s Wisdom’ Album
Just a bit over one year removed from signing to Roc Nation, Rapsody is currently gearing up to release Laila's Wisdom, her first official album on the label. On Tuesday (Sept. 12), the artist revealed the features on her LP, and let's just sa, it's more than a little star-studded.
In an Instagram post serving as a sort of preview for her album, Rapsody reveals that Kendrick Lamar, Black Thought, Anderson .Paak, Musiq Soulchild, Busta Rhymes, Terrace Martin and more will be on her new project. Her collab with .Paak serves as the soundtrack to her preview video, which ends with an image of Rapsody sitting in front of a car while images of her collaborators float in the background.
"#LailasWisdom 9.22 Featuring @kendricklamar @anderson._paak @blackthought @bustarhymes @thisismoonchild @musiqsoulchild @gwenbunn @lanceskiiiwalker @findingisaiah @terracemartin," Rapsody wrote in the caption for her post.
Rapsody previously rapped with K. Dot on "Rock The Bells," which is a track from her 2011 mixtape For Everything. It will be interesting to see what they've got in store for a collab six years later after, especially considering King Kendrick's rise to the very top of the rap game.
In an Instagram post from about a week ago, Busta gushed about Rapsody's upcoming album, saying it's one of the best rap albums he's probably heard in 10 years. "My sis @rapsody is getting ready to drop the best album I've heard not only from a female MC but in Hip hop period as well that I've personally had a chance to hear from top to bottom in it's entirety that I've probably in the last 10yrs," he wrote.
Laila's Wisdom will be Rapsody's second project in the last year and her second Roc Nation release overall. The first was her Crown EP, which dropped last November. Laila's Wisdom drops on Friday, Sept. 22.
