Rapsody‘s Laila’s Wisdom was rightfully nominated for 2-Grammy awards. In a new TIDAL documentary, she details the making of said masterpiece and gives us an exclusive look into her life, her background, and everything and everybody who has influenced her artistry and the great success she’s achieving today.
The inspiration behind the album title, Laila’s Wisdom came from Rapsody’s grandmother. She explained how every time she would call or visit her grandmother her grandmother would always say, “You came to give grandmother her flowers.”
Rapsody went on to explain —
“You give flowers to people in the sense of not physical flowers. Flowers as in your time your love your energy. That what I want to do with the music. I want to give the world flowers. I want to give these little girl flowers. In the sense that I want to inspire them. I want to give them confidence. I want to give them love and teach them how to love themselves.”
The documentary shares perspectives from Rapsody’s brother, mother, aunt and uncle, as well as features from music moguls Jay Electronica, Young Guru, 9th Wonder and a multitude of producers who have been granted the opportunity to work with her and indulge in her contagious energy.
