Xay Capisce is a thrilling rapper out of Alabama. His latest song, “Do It Again,” is a banger. There are a lot of things that it has going for it, from the brooding nature of the ominous production to the very atmosphere that the video seemingly creates. But what makes it hit even harder than possible are the rapper’s lyrics. Capisce is a brutal lyricist that forgoes all of the theatrics and intricacies of backpack rap. He’s firmly in the arena of trap rap, but there’s something more sinister lurking in his voice. It makes the song a thrilling, yet scary listen. In the accompanying video, Capisce heads to a funeral. If that’s not an indicator of the darkness of his aesthetic, I don’t know what is.
Listen to Xay Capisce rap fast and furious on “Do It Again.”
