D Smoke delivers energetic visual for “It’s Ok”
It’s all good vibes for the new year in the Inglewood emcee’s latest clip.
D Smoke looks to welcome us all into the new year with some inspirational tunes to enjoy. For his latest, the Inglewood star delivers a new visual for the track “It’s Ok,” a Zorro-produced cut that’s filled with the kind of positive affirmations that we all need to kick off 2021:
“Why do we love the struggle on the fence, between livin’ our dreams and livin’ alone simply? Even the right decisions come with consequences/
Look in the mirror, you see your competition, it’s gettin’ clearer, it’s me, I got to fix ‘em, it’s me, my opposition, ain’t no solution to the algorithm, I run that shit like n***as out to get ‘em…/”
Perhaps taking a page from past collaborator Tobe Nwigwe, the Sergio-directed visual for “It’s Ok” is a synchronized effort throughout, with D Smoke performing as coordinated dancing, a full on band, and more awesomeness taking place behind and around him.
Last year was a pretty big one for D Smoke, as he released big debut LP — and second official overall — Black Habits, which saw 16 tracks and additional appearances from Jill Scott, Snoop Dogg, Ari Lennox, blood brothers SiR and Davion Farris, and more. Since then (and in addition to “It’s Ok”), he’s been releasing loose singles for the masses like “Rapture” and “Let Go.” D Smoke could also be found contributing to some equally dope cuts by Nwigwe, Rapsody, KIRBY, Jac Ross, and TeaMarrr.
In a past interview with REVOLT, D Smoke spoke on his and his brothers’ early beginnings in music:
“My brothers and I signed as kids, it was a little boy group. At that moment, we knew, ‘Oh shit, this could get big at any moment.’ … Then, somewhere along the way in the middle, it gets crazy and you have to decide to continue.”
