Watch Stogie T Globetrotting In The Video For ‘Honey and Pain’

Watch Stogie T's new video for 'Honey and Pain.'

In the new video for his single "Honey and Pain," South African lyricist Stogie T is giving us a glimpse into his travels and adventures.


The video is a collation of clips of the rapper from a few years ago, in different places—South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Nigeria, Canada and France, among a few others.

You can see him in recording sessions with Mike Classic (who sings the hook on the song), M.I, one half of P Square, and performing in different stages.

Cameos spotted include Tehn Diamond, Rouge, Da L.E.S, Zubz, and a few more.

"Honey and Pain" is the first single the rapper released since releasing his self-titled album in 2016, which came with his name change.

On the song, T talks of the dichotomy between poverty and wealth.

"Life ain't fair, you can kiss the ground and the ring/ Think it's a breeze, that's only 'cause the pendulum swing/ This is honey and pain, both struggle and gain
Gold mining in vain, if you can't shower in a chain"
"Our folks running in circles/ Yet they can't scrub the bills, still stuck in this hellhole/ 'cause reptiles go Judas over silver/ Cross you for a profit like Moses split the river"
