Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Aligo & Yardboyk - Pain To Glory [EP Stream]

Emerging as one of the game’s hottest dynamic duos, buzzing critically acclaimed Canadian rappers Aligo and YardboyK proudly present their very first joint EP, Pain To Glory, today via Litt Music/The Orchard.

The six-track project boasts the new single “Glory.” An old-school soul sample gives way to a thumping beat as the words, “We turning pain into glory,” set the tone for the track and the project at large. Aligo and YardboyK trade thoughtful and tight verses back and forth as the hook resounds to the rafters as the perfect soundtrack to a victory lap. They paved the way for Pain To Glory with singles “No Heart,” “Winner’s Circle,” and “Ground Floor,” posting up hundreds of thousands of streams in advance. Executively produced by Doc Jones. Already, Loading Magazine declared, “The album encapsulates the artist’s essence track by track.” Additionally, Apple Music has supported the pair with placements on coveted playlists Street Politics and Bars. The Toronto Raptors even played “Winner’s Circle” during half-time last month!

Separately, both of these rising stars have made a mark…

An international citizen whose journey twisted and turned from Canada to Oslo to London, Aligo has consistently delivered artful anthems, earning praise from Earmilk, Clash, Noctis Magazine, The Line of Best Fit, Skope Mag, and Red Bull Sound Select. At the same time, he has captivated audiences everywhere from Oya Festival and Red Bull Music Showcase to Oslo Uhort Jazz Festival. Meanwhile, TikTok sensation Annabella Kline has championed his music on her channel and on Green Tea Radio in Los Angeles. Beyond claiming real estate on New Music Friday UK, Spotify & Chill, dazed, and more, he also lent his voice to Marie Dahlstrom’s “Sparks” [with Dan Diggas] and landed on BBC Radio 1.

Meanwhile, Ottawa native YardboyK has steadily attracted a growing audience. He has served up fan favorites such as “Merka,” “Beautiful Vibe,” and “Demons” in addition to receiving plugs from OttawaShowbox and BuzzMusic. He has also seen airplay on New Hot 899 and even during Ottawa Blackjacks games.

Coming together, Aligo & YardboyK stand out as an unstoppable and undeniable force for the culture as they transform Pain To Glory.
