Rapsody’s glow up continued earlier this month as she sat down for an interview with the legendary Larry King. The North Carolina native talked about how Kendrick Lamar changed her career and what makes him such a special artist, hip-hop’s responsibility in the era of President Trump, and her Grammy Nominations (Laila’s Wisdom is nominated for Best Rap Album while Sassy is up for Best Rap Song).
