I wasn't totally sure what to expect from this album. I knew that since 9th Wonder is heavily involved that I was going to get some substance at the least...and that's what I got plus so much more. This may be too early to say, but I'm going to say it anyway. This is a PERFECT album. I found myself trying to find flaws in "Laila's Wisdom" and there aren't any. Rapsody delivered an album about the everyday struggles of a black woman in society. Whether it be relationship issues, self confidence, finances, Rapsody spills her spoken word over jazzy and soulful production that isn't for the casual rap fan. There aren't any big singles with catchy hooks that you'll be hearing in the club. For me, I can't just listen to one single song on the album. I have to start it from the top every time and play it all the way through. I've listened to this album from top to bottom about 10 times and STILL bought it after multiple listens because artists like Rapsody need to be supported. We gotta protect Rapsody at all costs. This reminds me of when I heard Little Brother's "The Minstrel Show" for the first time....and that album is in my top 5 of all time. I didn't realize how much mainstream hip hop needed Rapsody until I heard this album. From now on, we the top lyricists are discussed she has to be mentioned as well. Much respect to Rapsody and everyone that was involved with this album. Please give "Laila's Wisdom" a listen. 10/10??
