He also likes to implement old school vibes in his songs. That is one of the main reasons his music is known in the underground scene, because he is bringing those early 2000s hip hop vibes back. His rapping style is very diverse and in some of his songs he can be rapping very slowly and giving the listener a chill vibe, but in his latest song “ Who gone tell em” we get a glimpse of his rapping skills. In this song he is throwing bars really fast while keeping up with the beats.
His lyrics are something that everyone can relate to. He raps about heartbreaks, personal struggles, insecurities, etc. “ My music shows my journey within the growth and emotional experiences over the years I’ve had as a black man in the UK. I’ve seen that my music has connected with people and has touched them, ” Cap1talA said in an interview with wonderlandmagazine. The way he delivers messages throughout his music is something not many artists are able to achieve.
His most populars songs are “Paranoia”, “In My Head”, “Pain”, and “Summer Whining”.

The voice tone changes in each one of them depending on what type of experience or emotion he is trying to share with his audience.
In the same interview with wonderlandmagazine Cap1talA expressed that the ones who motivated him to start making music were Tyler, The Creator, and MF Doom.
