“Honey and Pain” is a mixed bag, clearly implied in the title, as it chronicles the beauties of existence, and the ghastly melanin too. Taken together, the tracks in the album is Stogie T trying to interrogate the issues around him.
And he did a fine job of it, moving from track to track. “Honey and Pain” is a 10-tracker beginning with “Purgatory,” and ending in “God’s Eye.” The album also feature the eponymous track “Honey and Pain,” featuring Mike Classic.
Other tracks include “Reckless,” featuring Lucille Slade, “Rapture,” featuring Jay Claude, “Numbers Game,” featuring YoungstaCPT – just a list of some of our favourites.
Stogie T has not only distinguished himself as a musician with such bangers as “Stogie T” (yeah, he named that after himself), he has made a name as a critical feature material as well. AKA co-opted him in “Starsigns” and DJ Capital co-opted him (alongside Kwesta, YoungstaCPT, Kid X and Reason) in “Skebe Dep Dep (Remix)”
Stogie T might be an oldie, but he has got an excellent body of work that will live after him. He is a rapper of incredible gifts and commendable dedication. It shows in his work.
