Lab Overview

Rapsody's 2017 album Laila's Wisdom received two Grammy nominations (Best Rap Album / Best Rap Song). This might have raised her profile to the general public, but the North Carolina MC has been putting in work for a minute, and this 2012 debut on Jamla is proof. With production from 9th Wonder and features from Mac Miller, Ab-Soul, BJ the Chicago Kid, Cool Kids, and Raheem DeVaughn, Rapsody unleashes her A-1 bars, and the rapper's rhyme patterns, metaphors, and wordplay are well suited for the soulful boom-bap beats. Rapsody has been vocal about her influences: MC Lyte, Lauryn Hill, Jay-Z, & Mos Def. If you're a fan of any of those artists, pick this up.
