Verified artist


Mobile, AL-based rapper NoCap has just released his groundbreaking new mixtape, THE HOOD DICTIONARY. The new release follows NoCap’s acclaimed 2019 mixtape, THE BACKEND CHILD which earned national acclaim. Pitchfork naming it among its “Great Records You May Have Missed: Spring 2019,” writing, “NoCap’s country-trap comes replete with sing-rap melodies, acoustic guitars that belong on a Darius Rucker record, and choruses of hi-hats and 808 snares. Cap tells vivid stories about the pain of growing up in the Deep South while always being in complete control of his voice.” 2019 saw the breakthrough release of “Ghetto Angels”. Pitchfork wrote, “NoCap is in touch with his Southern roots, taking us to church over a piano-driven instrumental that could without question play during a Sunday morning service…Lyrically, NoCap is candid, reflecting on his lost ones behind heart-rending bars: the faith-questioning, ‘Why do I always question God but I never pray,’. “The lyrics depict his fallen comrades into people who watch over him,” wrote XXL, “keeping NoCap safe on his journey through life. The song has resonated and took his career to another level.”
