Carl Lovett (Formerly with Pretty Ricky, now signed to G1 Muzic) is one of the realest ones in the rap game right now, and in this new single called ‘Oh No No No’, he tells you exactly how he received this title.
‘Oh No No No’ sounds a bit dramatic production-wise, as the beat consists of heavy-hitting drums and a few piano notes. On the chorus, Carl gives us something that is both tough and infectious at the same time, reassuring the listeners that he has no signs of fugazi in his DNA at all.
On the first verse, Carl shows great aggression, rapping with this good tempo throughout. Lyrically, he reiterates how aware he is of the street codes, giving prime examples of some of the hood episodes he went through in the past. His verse is very authentic, and a great opportunity to learn about his persona.
Maine has the second verse, and he adds an extra dose of gutter to the already street-inspired track. While majority of his verse boastfully challenges the fugazzi folks out there to be a real one like him, he still shows some passion on the song by using this heavily melodic approach.
Overall, the melody, the harmony, and the overall message on this song is superb to me.
