Leland Tyler Wayne aka Metro Boomin is a well-known music producer who worked with so many rapper lately and produced lots of hits. Even those who do not know him might recall him from his tag: "If Young Metro don't trust you I'm gon' shoot you." Does that ring a bell? Last year he released his 6th studio album "NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES"

Let's remember, Metro worked with 21 Savage in 2014 album Savage Mode. In 2017 album Perfect Timing, he worked with NAV. In Without Warning, he worked with 21 Savage and Offset. He also produced Big Sean's 2017 album Double Or Nothing

He used to work mainly with one or two vocal in an album, but this time Metro created his last project differently. Travis Scott, 21 Savage, Drake, Kodak Black, Swae Lee, Offset, Gunna, Young Thug, Gucci Mane and WizKid were the performing artists in NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES. I usually have a sort of disappointment when I see that much feature in a project because I expect a masterpiece and a classic. I can say, everyone did a good job. This album gave me everything I expected. It has a story, maybe not particularly track by track but the whole project gives me that feeling I get when I read some fantastic tales. I am in love with the structure and the sound. I will not mention every single track but some of them really deserve a shout out. Dreamcatcher, Borrowed Love, Don't Come Out the House and No More are incredibly beautiful tracks. I listened to all of them for like a week on repeat. They are perfectly produced. Besides Metro; Travis, 21 and Swae Lee are heroes of those tracks. Travis is on fire for a long time, 21 just dropped an album a few months ago and Swae Lee is literally on every album. 

Let's get down to the main subject, No More. Co-producer SØ defines the track as intoxicating production by Metro Boomin. The song finds the aforementioned rappers in an intoxicated “zombie”-esque state as they continue to “pop pills” and drink lean until they “can’t feel no more” he says. Can you feel the way I do now? Man, I wish this track could have been the soundtrack of Blade Runner. No More starting with Travis' verse reminds me the rapper's early years. The sound definitely belongs to his Travi$ Scott days. I am still not over the sweet taste of Days Before Rodeo. Every Travis fan is looking for another old school mixtape like Days Before Rodeo. On the other hand the story he tells in his part is like a spin-off later 90210. You can tell by the lyrics. 

(90210)

He might pop him a pill, pop him a seal, pop anyone
Pop anything, pop anything to find that alley
Hmm, yeah, then find an alley, mm

Baby's hooked on feeling numb
In the 90210, 90210, somewhere in that alley

21 absolutely killed it, just another perfect bar he wrote for No More. After his arrest by ICE earlier this year, I have been interested in his music a lot more and became an ultimate fan of 21 Savage. What a great album he dropped a few months ago, "i am > i was" is all about freshness. Maybe I will talk about it more later, but loving the fact that he keeps creating new music every year and surprises us with another great project. And Kodak... Kodak is as we know him, he has that great voice, perfect flow and everything, but he literally mentions 5 different kinds of drugs in the shortest verse. It is really too much even for Kodak. I like him anyway. The 21-year-old rapper also released his second studio album called Dying to Live just before Christmas. Ah, it is a great album. 2018 was a really good year for hiphop.

Lyrics:

[Intro: Travis Scott]

You know the comedown, we really feeling soothing
The come-up got 'em all oozing
Took a one way to take it out of Houston
Took the Metro and we was still boomin'

[Chorus: Travis Scott]

I just pour 'til I can't pour no more
I slow down but it ain't slow no more
I stack up 'cause it don't fold no more
I pour up 'til I can't pour no more
I slow down but it ain't slow no more
I stack up 'cause it don't fold no more

[Verse 1: Kodak Black]

Nowadays, I be on ecstasy when I'm bored
I don't even know who keep it real anymore
All that living fast, pour the lean, make me slower
You know I ain't that nigga to be played, do your homework
If I could do it all over, I'd make the same mistakes
All that fucking over made me who I am today
Slidin' Maybach with the drapes, you can't see me pass
I was in the school on a C class
I tried the Perky but it ain't work, and I'ma still pop 'em
Drinking purple, smokin' purp, I need to see about it
All that pain, I'm poppin' molly like an antibiotic
I can't help it, I'm a zombie, I can't heal my heartache

[Chorus: Kodak Black]

I pop pills 'til I can't feel no more
Tryna be sane but I can't hold no more
I wanted fame but I don't know no more
I pop pills 'til I can't feel no more
Tryna be sane but I can't hold no more
I wanted fame but I don't know no more

[Verse 2: 21 Savage]

Tried love but I can't no more (Nah)
Tryna find loyalty, it ain't no more (Nah)
Told myself I wasn't gonna drink no more (On God)
It's like the styrofoam glued to me though (Straight up)
I feel weak for using drugs to ease the pain (21)
From the street, concrete in my vein (Straight up)
Lil bit of change make a nigga change (On God)
Different tax bracket but my number still the same (Facts)
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
'Cause these bitches act like niggas
And these niggas act like hoes (Straight up)
Shooting for the moon but the stars just fine (21)
Tryna make a dollar and I'm short nine dimes (21)
You know I'm a hustler, I'ma grind 'bout mine (21)
Long as I got Metro, nigga I'm gon' shine

[Chorus: 21 Savage, Travis Scott, & Kodak Black]

I sip drank until I can't no more
Pour up the lean until I can't no more
One more cup, I think I just might snore
I sip drank until I can't no more
Pour up the lean until I can't no more
One more cup, I think I just might snore
I just pour 'til I can't pour no more
I slow down but it ain't slow no more
I stack up 'cause it don't fold no more
I pop pills 'til I can't feel no more
Tryna be sane but I can't hold no more
I wanted fame but I don't know no more

[Outro]

(Lord, save the world
Lord, save the world
Lord, save the world)
Lord, save the world (Lord, save the world)
Lord, save the world (Lord, save the world)
From this hunger for power (Lord, save the world)
From certain destruction's hour
Motherfuckers cannot listen to that fuckin' save the world shit
No, I don't like it
We are totally against that shit
You stream it, iPhone or your phone, whatever
I'm taking the shit and I'm here to tell you
I'm here to keep rap the fucking same
He's trying to save it, I'm not
You'll all be heroes
