Over the past couple months, Nocando has continuously dropped loosies and promotional material, keeping his name nice and fresh in our mind. Following visuals for “Osaka” and “Last Man Standing,” the LA native returns once again with “Alaska.”
Nocando is no stranger to the me-against-the-world attitude, and “Alaska” builds on that trait. He compares his personality to that of the coldest state in the United States: cold and lonely. Even when he keeps “his enemies close,” he feels they’re still far enough away to where he can still operate without any distractions.
Nocando explained the lonely nature of the song, which was produced by Nate Fox, in an email:
It’s about being apart of a group and operating by the groups laws and rules and culture but being physically separate. It’s grown man shit, it’s about having independence but having to deal with the loneliness that comes with it. It’s about the necessary growing pains of someone coming into their own.
