Nocap Dna

Nocap Dna

Alabama rapper NoCap has just released a new YouTube-only single and music video titled “DNA.” The single dropped months after his 2022 album Mr. Crawford and a few singles, including “Nothing’s Changing” and “Valuable Souls.” It’s all added up to a pretty prolific year for the 24-year-old.

“DNA” sees NoCap in a familiar lane, as the single’s beat is bouncy and bass-heavy. Basically, any YoungBoy fan will know the groove. It’s not the most bombastic or hard-hitting beat structure or sound pallet, but it moves the track forward. If anything, NoCap’s faster flows and narrations fit even better on a beat like this than some standard trap.

Melodically, some soft guitars control the single’s tune. The Never Broke Again camp often works with beats like these, and built up a catalog of melancholy street tales. In comparison to some of the grandiose horns or pianos used by many other trappers, “DNA” is more soulful and emotional. NoCap’s impassioned vocal runs and sung parts on the single also add to that sentimental core.

Despite this, the “Ghetto Angels” rapper is actually in a bit of hot water at the moment. After the tragic passing of Takeoff was reported, many were put off by NoCap’s tribute post. Fans labelled it as insensitive to the tragedy and he promptly deleted the post.

Lyrics

[Intro]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Damn, MyBaad)

[Chorus]
Got these niggas playin’ catch-up, they must heard that I was winnin’
Pour up in a Phantom, money, it get made any minute
Designer junkie, I’m a crackhead whenever I’m in Lennox
All my niggas know it’s rod, man, they might lay down the dentist
Pour this Codeine up and take me to another world
And if you love me shawty, let me go and fuck on your girl
I hope that God forgive me, I been takin’ medicine
Them Devils at the door, I kill whoever let ’em in (Oh-oh-oh)
Knife in my hand, my heart on zero
I feel like Jason Tatum
Been hurt too much, won’t let ’em too close
Even my fuckin’ label
I been eatin’ with my left hand, the right one under the table
‘Cause soon they think they steppin’ on me, the doctor’s metal plate ’em
We tote sticks like the Taliban, but, name a time I ran
Do two shows, a hundred stacks, that paper what I rack
Tote clips, that’s in my DNA, that mean we do not act
I feel just like I’m Aaron Donald, I’m tryna get a sack
Ayy, ayy, ayy

[Verse 1]
These niggas watered down
My neck so watered down
These bitches watered down
Pull up a lil mo’ extra, these bitches way too extra
We on another level
Remember I was blind, now I pull up Cullinan
Them hoes gon’ follow us when I leave out the club, I’m in
I’m missin’ Wap, but I can’t blame him for the way I’m sippin’
They gon’ catch me up inside them chains before they catch me slippin’
I done flooded all my hoe’s baguettes
I been swervin’ on the road of success
I know [?] ghetto entry’s the best
No, I’m not happy ’cause I’m dealin’ with that
Right now, you feel like you alone
But, one day, you comin’ home
We can’t sleep good, we never alone
Problems, we just got to move on
She from Ohio, she ain’t never seen this much of money, I left her buckeye
I did time, I can’t get the jail up out my head
Rather my scalp dry
Angel to my mama, wonderin’ why the fuckin’ feds wan’ be the bad guy
These scars, they overflow, but, I know I come out on top
Just like last time

[Bridge]
Oh, oh, oh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Oh, oh, oh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Oh, oh, oh, uh, uh
Oh, oh, oh
This shit I said fucked up [?]
Fucked up my trust so now, it’s hard for me to build
Cried out for help, it seem like no one didn’t hear
That’s probably why I put these pointers in my ear

[Verse 2]
I tote them drums like I’m Travis, nigga, I’m not a barker
I got no ceilings up in traffic, nigga, like Mr. Carter
Wanna say I’m won’t, but we leave you mama
Devastated
When you ball, you can throw it up like Tom Brady
On the road, so, sometimes when you call, the signal will fail on you
Girl, what you wanna do next? I’ll never tell on you
Your problems is just like your dress, whatever you see is through
Forever, I ride for my guys until I’m sleepin’ in a suit, nigga
Forever, I ride, forever, I ride, forever, I ride
Forever, I ride, forever, I ride, forever, I ride

[Chorus]
Got these niggas playin’ catch-up, they must heard that I was winnin’
Pour up in a Phantom, money, it get made any minute
Designer junkie, I’m a crackhead whenever I’m in Lennox
All my niggas know it’s rod, man, they might lay down the dentist
Pour this Codeine up and take me to another world
And if you love me shawty, let me go and fuck on your girl
I hope that God forgive me, I been takin’ medicine
Them Devils at the door, I kill whoever let ’em in (Oh-oh-oh)
Knife in my hand, my heart on zero
I feel like Jason Tatum
Been hurt too much, won’t let ’em too close
Even my fuckin’ label
I been eatin’ with my left hand, the right one under the table
‘Cause soon they think they steppin’ on me, the doctor’s metal plate ’em
We tote sticks like the Taliban, but, name a time I ran
Do two shows, a hundred stacks, that paper what I rack
Tote clips, that’s in my DNA, that mean we do not act
I feel just like I’m Aaron Donald, I’m tryna get a sack
Ayy, ayy, ayy
