Finally! The highly-anticipated video for one of Lalia’s Wisdom’s most raved about tracks, “Power,” featuring Kendrick Lamar and Skiiiwalker has been released. Hip-hop heads have already declared Rapsody’s Lalia’s Wisdom a 2017 classic with its flawless signature production by 9th Wonder.
The track appears to mirror the stance of modern day society and the personal struggle plagued against the confidence of blacks and people of color. Personifying a Black Panther, Rapsody delivers lyrics that embody the specifics of power ownership when it comes to all people, places and things. “I know my blackness powerful and they don’t like that, I know some niggas sold theirs, sit back and watch ’em tap dance…”
Despite an obvious absence of DAMN rapper, Kendrick Lamar, it opened up room for the lyrical entrance of Oakland emcee GQ, who anchored the visual with thought-provoking bars. Peep the visual to Rapsody’s “Power” by pressing play, below.
