Rapsody just revealed the release of the music video for her second single, “Stand Tall,” from her much anticipated album Please Don’t Cry.

The North Carolina MC shows off her lyrical skills while interviewing close friend and actress Sanaa Lathan. She discusses her honest feelings about honor, rumors, and sincerity.

I realized life like bike trips, we need handle it. You gon’ shine or fade to black as a result of all your damages,” she raps. “My uncle’s ashes are on the mantelpiece, and I visit my aunt. Her tears never stop; it’s like the cycles on a rinse repeat.”

In another place, Rapsody continues, “Every day is a mental cleaning spree because I’m cut from that fabric / Trying to find some dignity while navigating this business, but all you can think about is if I eat coochie or whether I have a dick inside of me. You all ought to read Bitches and Dick Gregory.

The sequel to last year’s “Asteroids,” which featured Hit-Boy, is called “Stand Tall.” After 2019’s Eve, Rapsody’s fourth studio album will be called Please Don’t Cry. Erykah Badu, Lil Wayne, Phylicia Rashad, Baby Tate, Alex Isley, and more will make cameos on the album, which is set to be released on May 17.
