NoCap is a master of gloom. The Mobile, Alabama, rappers music mines a distinct sense of hopelessness; at points, his voice warbles with an unmistakable dread and then swells into a half-rapped, half-shrieked force.

Count A Million, his new song featuring Lil Uzi Vert, seems at first like it might be a song about the happiness that comes along with newly found wealth and security. Yet NoCap assures the listener I aint flexin, I aint braggin, despite devoting a considerable amount of time to doing that very thing. He might be relaxing in a five-star hotel after stepping off a jet, but his words still come with a sense of paranoia thats understandable. For every one of his flexes, there are unforeseen consequences. Thats why hell boast, Ithink that I could count amillion with my eyes closed on the chorus and move on to Niggas I love wanna see me lose by the verse. Its all juxtaposed with AlGeno and Yung Tagos production, full of wistful keys and chaotic drums.

By the time Lil Uzi Vert one of the architects of modern raps narcotized state arrives on the song, hes clearly at home. Every time that I lose somebody, you know that its numb time, he raps at the beginning of his verse. I sit back, take a pill and think about all of em, good times. Theres not much to celebrate on Count A Million, but then again, most people arent in the mood to rejoice right now.
