La’ Vega Releases Visuals for New Song About ‘Nappy’ Hair [Video]
Stephanie “La’ Vega” Lavigat has a new video out and it’s about “Nappy” hair.
The Bronx, N.Y., hip-hop singer aims for her girl-next-door persona with straight-forward lyrics, but she does not bite her tongue for anyone.
In her third music video with director Taya Simmons, her truthfulness and pain from her past comes out in “Nappy.”
For La’ Vega and other young girls and women like her, growing up with coarse hair can be tough.
The lyrics in “Nappy” reveal a young girl who felt isolated and ashamed because of her hair texture, all because of how she was treated by others.
The visuals feature young African-American and Hispanic girls with natural hair, going through a range of emotions. At times the tears and smiles of the girls show an innocence easily trampled by nappy hair’s stigma.
La’ Vega’s sixth mixtape, GoneGirl.GirlGone, will be released in May.
