In the last several months, PnB Rock has cemented his place as a valuable gem in the features department. So far this year, Rock aided the likes of 50 Cent, XXXTentacion and recently, Meek Mill with his buoyant melodies. With his buzz reaching a crescendo, on Friday (July 20) Rock opted to release two new singles "Nowadays" and "ABCD (Friend Zone)" from his forthcoming double-album TRAPSTAR TURNT POPSTAR.
The former finds the Philly star ruminating about his early struggles over a piano-laden beat. "Came from a broken home, momma, she was never home/ All our fathers dead and gone, yeah they left us all alone," croons Rock. He also digs deep into his family woes and highlights his mom's old drug-dealing ways, singing, "Momma had to sell crack, 'member n----s took her pack/ Robbed her for a fuckin' sack, now we gotta start from scratch."
