Rapsody Announces Sophomore Album 'Laila's Wisdom,' Joins Forces with Busta Rhymes on "You Should Know"
Roc Nation contract inked, new album en route
On September 22nd, Rapsody will release her second studio album, Laila’s Wisdom via Jamla/Roc Nation. The album will follow last year’s 10-track Crown EP, which featured appearances from Anderson .Paak, Raphael Saadiq, Ab-Soul and Moonchild.
The album campaign commences today with the release of the new single “You Should Know,” featuring the mighty Busta Rhymes and production from (who else) 9th Wonder. Earlier this year, the Jamla MC graced a cut on Talib Kweli and Styles P’s collaborative project, The Seven, Ab-Dash’s Do What Thou Wilt before that. And so it finally appears to be Rapsody season. And if “You Should Know” is a sign of what’s to come, we’re here for all of it.
