The C Major tribute opens with the fallen rapper in a recorded freestyle talking about several things, what’s hip hop and what young rappers like him should be doing.

“Major Pain” is personal for Kavali King who shared screenshots of a conversation between him and C Major (R.I.P) in March. It was days before Major’s death. He comments on it on the song and in pain says if the people who claimed to know C Major really knew him, they should have uplifted him. It’s painful. Kavali also in apostrophe expresses what he had observed in Major’s music: pain. Despite his troubled life and a series of mental health issues, he loved music and weaving poetically.
It was said that C Major succumbed to ulcer attack and allegedly he was poisoned. The YouTube description recognises his contribution and representation of Mutungo, a Kampala suburb.
