Fresh off featuring on fellow Philadelphian Meek Mill's comeback project, PnB Rock is back with a new solo single titled "Nowadays."

The song, built around dramatic piano noodling, finds Rock reflecting on his childhood and gauging his progress. The 2017 XXL Freshman isn't content, but he's proud of his accomplishments. It's a bittersweet ballad.

"Used to sleep in the crib, no heat on/Put some crates under the bed, just to sleep on/Put syrup on my bread, just to eat on/Nowadays, look at niggas, we on/Nowadays, look at niggas, we up/Still ain't comfortable so I ain't got my feet up/Trap phone jumpin' off the meter/I need 50K for a feature," he croons.

Rock has stayed busy this year. He toured with Lil Baby in support of his November album Catch These Vibes, and appeared on recent albums by Dice Soho and XXXTentacion, as well as Meek's aforementioned EP Legends of the Summer. "Changes," his collaboration with X, was certified platinum days before the Florida rapper's death.

Rock paid his respects to XXXTentacion by attending the rapper's open-casket viewing ceremony last month. "Pray for X," he tweeted after news broke of the rapper's fatal shooting.
