Listen to Kenneth Whalum's Big K.R.I.T.-assisted powerful song "Might Not Be Ok."

Grammy-winning musician Kenneth Whalum returns to our senses with a somber new song, featuring frequent collaborator Big K.R.I.T., another character we've been waiting some time to hear from again. "Might Not Be Ok," a bleak reflection on the systemic police brutality waged against communities of color, features a melancholy yet defiant lead from Whalum, an incredibly underrated vocalist.

The song also has one of the most powerful K.R.I.T. verses of the Southern rapper's career. Through his words he depicts a black man's encounter with police that tragically ends in violence, an all too common occurrence in today's world. He weaves this intense scene with the implications of how that affects millions of people mentally, paranoia and the fearful psychosis. This song requires multiple listens and a strong heart.

Quotable Lyrics

Police brutality is all in your
And the tactic that they use only looks worse in rewind
People die everyday, you should get used to it
Hands behind your back, Face down, And still say you shootin

- Big K.R.I.T.
