Pain Release

“I ain’t trying to buy shit, all I do is stack”

Big Dog Yogo is a UK hip hop artist from Birmingham and Pain Release is possibly the best introduction to what he is all about. It also features a cadre of the best young talent from across the second city. Not saddled with any of the pretence that plagues the music industry, Big Dog isn’t afraid to say it as he see’s it. Featuring dark yet slick production, all 18 tracks have a beat most rappers would die for.

A glamourized look at the life of a young inner city man, Big Dog revels in the gangster lifestyle, yet makes no attempt to hide the harsh and brutal realities that most rappers would simply ignore or gloss over. The best example of this would be track four, Pickin’ Up Weight, which showcases Big Dog’s gruff and abrupt style perfectly.

The subject matter is pretty static across the mixtape. You’ll be hearing a lot about dealing drugs and nameless late night conquests. This is offset however, by Big Dog’s personality, which leaves you wanting to hear more. What you’re left with is a remarkably solid mixtape. Pain Release hits all the required spots and uses all the tropes of the genre to full effect. Big Dog’s style is very addictive, and the production quality is unrivalled in the scene. This is ideal for getting hyped up before a night out, but it’s also something that you’ll want to listen to again and again. The best thing about it is that it’s free for you to download!
