“’Heavy in the Game’ is a line that comes from my favourite 2Pac song. It’s about being immersed in your craft that even though you may want to leave, you can’t – you’ve worked too hard to get where you are and there’s no looking back. As a Canadian musician, especially a rapper, I’m grateful that I’ve been able to be doing this professionally for 10 years. This album represents my best work. I’m proud that a lot of people will be able to relate to this album. Heavy in the Game is about trying to do the right thing even when you are faced with the temptation to slip. – D.O.”
D.O.’s highly-anticipated album Heavy In The Game just dropped today, and is available for free via Bandcamp. Spanning 21 tracks and clocking in at around 1 hour, Heavy In The Game is a solid offering from the Toronto veteran. The inspiration for Heavy in the Game comes from D.O.’s extensive domestic and international touring, his experience with launching independent label Northstarr Entertainment, and his success as one half of hip hop duo Art of Fresh. Early favourites include “Bill Russell”, “Can’t Tell Me” (Remix), “For Heaven Sake”, “It’s On”, “Shut It Down”, and “The Legacy 2.0”. Stream and download the entire album below.
