Atlanta rapper/singer Derez De'Shon had a breakthrough hit with "Hardaway," a tuneful struggle anthem from his 2017 sleeper mixtape Pain. That song put De'Shon on the map with its melancholy piano loop, catchy crooned chorus, and lyrics about rising up from poverty and heartbreak to fame and fortune. Pain 2 follows his introductory mixtape and mostly tends towards the same elements that made "Hardaway" connect with listeners. "Pain" is an appropriate running theme for De'Shon's music, as most of the songs on Pain 2 center around fake friends, remembering days of hardship coming up and, more than with its predecessor, failed relationships. This time around De'Shon is joined by a host of acclaimed guests. On lamenting R&B/trap banger "Reasonz", Lil Durk spits fiery verses alongside De'Shon, both pondering who they can trust as the money piles up. "Need Some Mo" looks at problems trying to make ends meet and provide for family without turning to the temptation of street life, with Lil Baby dropping in to help with the hook. Features throughout Pain 2 are high-profile, but even great performances from Mozzy, Moneybagg Yo and others don't outshine the project as a whole. Autotuned sung vocals, troubled rhymes, and beats somewhere between moody R&B and light trap contribute to the majority of the songs, giving Pain 2 a consistency and the feeling of a larger overall statement. "Beat the Odds" comes closest to the same immediate hookiness of "Hardaway", but sounds more like a rewrite of the hit rather than a new chapter (even though a feature from YFN Lucci shakes up the formula a bit). Pain 2 continues from where Pain left off more than evolving Derez De'Shon's abilities, but it's an excellent collection of tracks that further establishes his multi-angled approach. As a mixtape, Pain 2 is excellent and sets the scene nicely for a proper studio album.

MF Doom, The Masked Man

Daniel Dumile, alias MF DOOM, lived a thousand lives and his career was a succession of false starts and bright flashes. Before passing away on the 31st of October, 2020, Dumile had been a young virtuoso rapper welcomed with open arms by the music industry, then an outcast that sneaked back onto the scene through the back door after years of wandering (now masked), the 'go-to-guy' of independent rap during the 2000s and then some kind of Indie messiah as dubbed by Thom Yorke and Flying Lotus. Elusive, whimsical, a trickster and a money maker, DOOM rewrote the rules of rap music, rubbed people up the wrong way and paved the way for a whole generation of MCs.
