Big V, former frontman of the Kentucky-based collective Nappy Roots, is back on the scene with a feel-good new single titled “It’s OK.” On the inspirational song, co-produced by V and Nitro, the Grammy-nominated rapper chronicles his personal challenges and setbacks, while comforting and encouraging listeners along the way. “Went from being all good, back to borrowing money,” he raps.
Never one to shy away from the harsh realities of life, V is refreshingly transparent and unapologetic, delivering well-earned wisdom with the conviction of a Baptist preacher – an appropriate offering considering his music often serves as a nexus between the church and the streets. With a catchy sing-songy hook and a fun accompanying video, shot with neighborhood kids at Bowling Green, KY’s Parker-Bennett Community Center, “It’s OK” is sure to catch the ear of fans, both old and new.
