Mapping GBNGA’s ongoing musical growth through his discography shows his penchant for quotable-laden raps, developing nous for hook crafting and overall song-making. The North London rapper continues down this path for his latest single, “Civilian”, on which he delivers ambitious raps with playful ease.
“If you wanna chase your dreams, then that’s MLK or TD Jakes/everyday mans inspired, cos I know I’m better than this”, GBNGA raps in a half-assertive, half-goofy cadence, over the minimalist bounce of flickering piano riffs, 808 bass and ticking hi-hats. The accompanying video GBNGA self-directs and edits for “Civilian” captures the vigor of his lyrics, showcasing the rapper as he performs his lyrics in the company of friends, as well as a few psychedelia-tinged frames with mystical references.
