After teasing fans with a snippet earlier this week, rapper/actor/artist Diggy Simmons has released his new single “It Is What It Is” accompanied by a stunning visual directed by Emmanuel Afolabi – watch “It Is What It Is” here. Set inside a Harlem church a zealous Diggy raps over a stripped back track composed of violins and gospel singers. Maintaining his signature quick fire bars, with “ It Is What It Is” Diggy proves why he continues to be an exciting addition to hip hop.
“I’m finally able to take a step back and say, ‘It is what it is. I’m happy with this. Here I am’,” Diggy explains. “A lot of people go through those ups and downs and sometimes you just need to let it be. The song really sets the tone for what is to come.”
