Last week, Nooch shared “Too Many,” his collaboration with fellow D.C. rapper and recent MMG signee Fat Trel. The track is billed as the lead single from the Nooch’s upcoming project, Sophomore Slump, though it also appeared on last year’s Rookie Season mixtape. Regardless, “Too Many” demonstrates the 18-year-old’s impressive mic presence. Despite his youth, Nooch rhymes with the self-assurance of a seasoned artist, and his confidence shines through on the track: “Got the life that you want/Everything you could need/I don’t just sit in the front/I can see player’s bleed.”
Trel brings star power, adding an ancillary dose of brash posturing, as well as his trademark goon sensibilities. The song is a strong showing from Nooch, and though Trel’s appearance is sure to grab attention, Nooch’s poise is better suited for more engaging material. Hopefully, Sophomore Slump, due out next month, will allow the young rapper to flash more of his range.
