No Diet

Album: Double Tap Diaries (2019)
Charted: 20

Songfacts®:

  • Digga D is a drill rapper from West London who first broke through with his verse on the remix of Russ' "Gun Lean." This song was his first to reach the mainstream UK singles chart.
  • The song is a hard-core braggadocio track which finds Digga spitting bars about his lifestyle on the London streets, which involves guns, drugs and plenty of sex. The punch line is based on the rapper preparing cocaine for sale:

    You know the coke ain't diet
    Whip it, set it, flick it, chef it
    Cop it, chop it, press it
    Cop it, lock it, sell it


    The single's cover art shows a can of Coca-Cola in a Pyrex measuring jug filled with water, which is a metaphor for cooking cocaine.
