Florida rapper GMK has graced fans with his first album this week tiled “Born To Be Free.” It offered its fair share of bangers and more melodic cuts featuring the likes of Toosi, JayDaYoungan, and Yungeen Ace. However, one of its standout tracks is “Dark Days” with Future, who just changed his last name to Cash. Both MCs spit over an atmospheric beat to paint their pictures of hard times.

Accordingly, “Dark Days” from GMK could fit snugly on a number of Future albums. It pushes a combination of guitar melody and piano chords; a tried and true trap formula. As such, “Dark Days” is very melodically dynamic. First, some yearning guitar notes draw listeners in, and high piano keys compliment the guitar’s tune. Furthermore, these different melodies all swirl through the track, waiting to be noticed by fans.

Also, this combination distinguishes the verse rhythms from the tracks main chorus melody. Interestingly, most of this progression comes through from these melodies, not the drums themselves. They employ familiar timbres and trap sounds, like the bustling hi-hats that trill, dip out, and reemerge. Still, the claps and snares emphasize the swing on “Dark Days,” and GMK and Future ride the beat with ease.

Moreover, Future fed this week. Pluto’s dropped a few new tracks, including an appearance on the Wakanda Forever soundtrack. Additionally, his “pushin p” track with Young Thug and Gunna went platinum recently. Still at the top after so many years, Future bring that perspective of growth to this track.

Lyrically, both rappers focus on the contrast between their current wealth and the experiences that brought them there. Specifically, GMK focuses “Dark Days” on the people that have abandoned him and didn’t believe in his abilities. Also, there’s an interesting bar in here about judges offering centuries and penitentiaries that’s maybe a relationship metaphor. Furthermore, he wrote vivid imagery about grabbing his gun before even getting dressed, and his chorus is passionate and well-sung.

Lyrics

[Intro: GMK]
(Pipe that shit up, TnT)
Get so much money, shorty wanna cum on a nigga
It’s like, sometimes the shit, that just say
(Keem, you wrong for that one)
It ain’t always what it look like (Show no love, woah-oh-oh-oh)
(DJ Shab, fool)
Shit got a deeper meanin’, ya feel me?
You wasn’t with me on my lonely, on my lonely, yeah
I know my grandma see me

[Verse 1: GMK]
They had they chance to have my back, they left me ‘lone (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
It’s like death knockin’ at my door, I ain’t been home
This judge don’t show no sentiment
She offer centuries in that penitentiary (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
They never care, but when they down, they hit my phone
It’s unfair, sometimes I hide my feelings ’til they unfair
I never cared, I wake up, grab that stick before my underwear
It’s easier to say that all my dawgs went to Heaven (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
But everything been goin’ down, I feel like I’m under Hell

[Chorus: GMK]
Hard times (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
I’m havin’ dark days through sunshine
But it’s something about that moonlight (Moonlight)
When I’m lost at night, it light my soul and lead the way
I know I’m alright
Hard times
I’m havin’ dark days through sunshine (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
But it’s something about that moonlight (Moonlight)
When I’m lost at night, it light my soul and lead the way
I know I’m alright (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)

[Verse 2: Future]
Cut from different cloth from niggas
Ain’t built like that
Leave your house without the pipe, get killed like that
We the type snipe off your wife, like summer sass (Bam)
Been through the thunder and lightnin’, streets get dusty
Stayed down on my grind, came up, supposed to be cocky (Oh, damn)
Shorty got my mind gone, thinkin’ ’bout new Buggati (Woo)
Everyday I go up like life is a party (Go up)
I just wanna pour up, this money got me so excited
New money, got new bitches with motives in my bed
Paranoid, gotta sleep with that ratchet in my hand
So many dark days is playin’ back in my head
Blood on my cash, turned my pain to VVS
All this Louis V, rockin’ flawless on a bad bitch
No matter how rich we get, can’t forget we some savages
I don’t even know her name ’cause I’m lit, she gon’ smash me
Hustle in my veins ain’t gon’ quit, it’s on my granddaddy
Ain’t even got no opps no more, too rich, I outlast ’em
Layed up with three bitches and a stick, in Skyami
Can’t never trust no ho, Pluto global, international
I’m gonna go berserk, stayed alert, gain capital

[Bridge: Future]
Hard times, turned my dark days to sunshine (Sunshine)
I came up, can’t forget hard times (Hard times)
I came up, can’t forget hard times (Hard times)
Yeah, yeah

[Chorus: GMK]
Hard times (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
I’m havin’ dark days through sunshine
But it’s something about that moonlight (Moonlight)
When I’m lost at night, it light my soul and lead the way
I know I’m alright
Hard times
I’m havin’ dark days through sunshine (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
But it’s something about that moonlight (Moonlight)
When I’m lost at night, it light my soul and lead the way
I know I’m alright (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
Hard times (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
I’m havin’ dark days through sunshine
But it’s something about that moonlight (Moonlight)
When I’m lost at night, it light my soul and lead the way
I know I’m alright (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
