I’m late on writing about this one, but let’s say that it’s better late than never. John Wells’ “It A Be Fine” is a storytelling masterpiece. For almost three minutes, the gruff Baltimorean raps about his life story and his surroundings.
This track stands out to me because of the sample, but also because of how calmly Wells raps on the track. He’s spitting about some real-life issues, but his matter of fact approach to the subjects he raps on adds weight to the title of the track. It’s almost as if the song says that even when things look their worst, keep the faith and keep pushing and things will work out. It helps that Wells’ bars are always on point from a technical level as well. This one is yet another classic in an increasingly long line of classics from one of Baltimore’s brightest artists. Check out the song above and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
