Rapsody says working with Kendrick Lamar changed her life and career for the better.
The female rapper had a phenomenal year in 2017 and a big part of her success is attributed to Kendrick Lamar whom she worked with on his landmark album To Pimp A Butterfly. Now she is nominated for a Grammy awards for Best Rap Album for her latest project Laila’s Wisdom. She is the only female rapper to be nominated in the category this year. Aside from dropping her album last year, she released a handful of singles that did very well on the airwaves.
Speaking with Larry King in a recent interview, Rapsody details how Kendrick Lamar significantly impacted her career last year and put on a scale she never thought she would reach. “After I worked with Kendrick on To Pimp A Butterfly, it put me on a platform where he introduced me to a lot of people that necessarily weren’t paying attention,” the rapper said. K-Dot is also nominated in the Best Rap Album category for his album DAMN. “It feels good to compete with your friends, you can compete but in a healthy way,” she said.
Rapsody also opened up about her impression of Kendrick Lamar as the face of rap music currently, telling Larry King that he is a fearless and humble rapper, who is not afraid to rap about anything he feels like. She says he first met the Compton rapper back in 2011 through producer 9th Wonder. They were both fans of each other at the time and Kendrick was a big fan of the producer.
As far as being the only female rapper nominated in the rap album category at the Grammy’s, Rapsody says it’s bittersweet because she grew up seeing a platter of female emcees in the 1990s and now it seems like there can only be one female mainstream rapper at a time.
