Metro Boomin stepped out of retirement with a bang. The St. Louis product touched down with Not All Heroes Wear Capes on Friday (November 2), and brought a long list of featured artists along with him. Tucked away on the scorching album is “No More,” a Dark Trap banger that finds 21 Savage, Travis Scott, and Kodak Black dropping ardent bars.
Kodak Black kicks off the first verse with a sobering view of drug addiction as he raps, “Nowadays I be on ecstasy when I’m bored/ I don’t even know who keep it real anymore.” 21 Savage follows with a revealing verse of his own, rapping, “Told myself I wasn’t gonna drink no more/It’s like the styrofoam glued to me though/ I feel weak for using drugs to ease the pain.” The distressing lyrics hit hard, showcasing a side of drug addiction that many rappers choose to ignore in their lyrics. Leave it up to Black, Savage, and Trav to keep things 100.
I done seen dope turn a nigga who had hope
To a nigga with no hope, hung himself by a rope (Straight up)
No joke ’cause he didn’t know the ropes
And he served an undercover, judge gave his ass a boat (Facts)
I done seen fame turn a nigga on his bro
Turn a bitch into a nigga, nigga turned into a ho (21)
Identity crisis, people don’t know who they is
