Glaswegian hip hop label Subfriction finally presents East Kilbride born Typikal‘s, debut album entitled The Mighty Pessimist. Its somewhat a look inside the mind of the average Scottish, twenty-something’s, man. As the title suggests, Typikal takes us through a journey of everything that grinds his gears, gets on his nerves, and just downright pisses him off. Tales of late teenage years of indulgence quickly become stories of growing up, struggling to make a wage, and preparing for fatherhood.
The content is gritty and realistic, though it is carried with care free, funk driven instrumentals which create a contrast only Scotland could portray. This should not be seen as an unstable emotional roller coaster, not in the slightest. Typikal carries himself with a sharp persistence only found in the most seasoned of rappers.
His wordplay and concise story telling make for a product capable of making you take another look at what pessimism really is.
