Versatility marks an artist who acknowledges and performs the definition of what an artist is. Kid Ink took to “One Day” to latch onto his gospel side and engage his fans, and himself, in conversation about what very well was a successful conclusion to the many obstacles he had to circumvent throughout his time coming up, and growing up, in a lower income neighborhood- as many rappers and rap listeners can most certainly relate to.
The visual for “One Day” has similar inklings of humility, but furthers the concept by adding in substantive imagery of the environment Kid Ink is familiar with. Haunting shots of a cemetery hint at a graver reality and trauma he has faced, or is facing. Panned shots of lower income LA, where Kid Ink is from, as well as the residents of it- be it the homeless or the regular civilians walking about on the daily- are also included in the visual. It adds to a very real place he, and many other rappers, could have ended up at- or remained in- had music not been some sort of a “God send”; a fitting analogy, considering Kid Ink takes to a church to rap nearly all of his verses.
This track is off RSS2 (or Rocketshipshawty 2), which dropped in late September. You can download the mixtape here and be on the lookout for more visuals from Kid Ink soon.
