On "Big League," Mavado takes a literal approach to the Cure Pain riddim, stretching out his phrasing and delivering meditative verses about living large. He's gone from nothing to something, the Gully God reminds us, and now he's even considering acting (remember his turn in Drake's "Find Your Love" video?) "Big League" is an anthem made for laid back days, and driving around with the windows down. And the video builds on this theme—and his challenge, if me cyah fly back...gully bigger than the pilot—with aerial shots over the wide highways and lush rainforests of Jamaica. Way up, for real.
