M.i.'s Emancipation - Should Mode9 And Ruggedman Hang Their Boots?

M.I's style has d World takin bout him, he has proven that he's not just 1 random rapper. He has taken d mode out of mode9 and the rugged out of ruggedman. What do u think? Lets thrash it.

MI is back with the enormous creativity, lyrical drive by’s, seduction, flirtation, verbal portrait painting and so much more. Illegal Music is a project that involves soundbites, rehashes of existing works by famous artistes all over the world. It’s an experimental album and MI is offering it as a free download (Not To Be Sold).

Ez-e,

This is NL baby!

They stringin u along and u feel like u skoolin dude? , lol

Y u gettin so pedagogy ove those lines?

Deeper and more cerebral line with kick Bottom knowledge has been

deciphered and analysed here. Dont play wit Nlanders dude.

This is just a nice word play, and yea brilliant, but cryptic? Nahhh!

M.i is drugs none da less, he's lyrical, im feelin the dude like crazy

But any dude wit a good head knows M9 is a bigger lyrical giant.

Some dudes just mentionin M.i bitin some line dont mean they hate.

Cos whether they r M9 lines that he used, or JayZ or Yeezy, M.i got his

own drugs lines too.

The major thing he has goin for him is his delivery,

and pple get that twisted and say he's the most lyrical.

The ability to be objective in observation is key here.

Mister increadible is incredible on delivery,but dr Ninestein is the lyrical surgeon.

Put the 2 of 'em together and u have the 2most incredible M's.

No disrespect but honestly, your asking this question again ultimately defeats the purpose of ur name as rapjunkie because if you need all these explanations for you to get these simple lines then u shud change ur name to rapnovice or something haba, lol

Im not going to waste anytime with the lyrics this time around, I going str8 to regular english expressions. If you don't get it afterwards, u r on your own

Example 1: A child does something out of character that is silly and an adult wants to scold him/her, the adult says "That was so silly of you" Notice that the sentence is singular because it is referring to just one child.  The adult could also have said "That was so silly" but to connect the stupidity of the action to the child, he/she adds the of you

Example 2: A group of friends wrestle their friend out of the mouth of a lion, and someone was reporting on the character it took to do that, the person can say, "That was very brave of them" here again, u notice the plurality because it refers to more than one person

That is as far as Im going to go regarding those particular lyrics, I hope you get it now. safe

I've got the whole illegal mixtape tracks on my mobile. I don't really know which is my favourite cos i love nearly all the tracks. M.I's the droppings for nw nd if u's hatin .  .  take a gun then put a hole in your head . I think the dude is lyrically inclined like M9 but his delivery nd wordplay is an xtra edge which gives him dat 'mass acceptance'.

'We historic black boys . . so Barrack of us'

If u don't get that then it's a big pity for a so called mode9 fan. It's M all the way .  .  M.I. then Mode9 lol It's the "Illegal Music Mixtape" baby! while Y'all still "Talk about it"

One last thing; M.I. is presently rockin all shows in Naija nd beyond. E'ry artist wants a piece of him, nw dats wat i'm talking about.

I understand all that . . . . . . . .  .historic black boys/obama . . . . . gives a damn/ saddam , but what is the relevance of adding the ' of us' in both lines if not to rhyme with octopus?   

so i ask again . . . . . .  what does 'barack of us' and 'iraq of us' mean?

So Rapjunkie Im gonna try and explain this for u one last time

1.) We historic black boys so Barack of us

Barack Obama = Historic black man

So he is using Obama's first name Barack to qualify the characteristics of he and his camp as historic.

2.) And we don't giveS a damn (Saddam) so Iraq of us

There are two links in this line, first is to understand that Saddam is characterized as representing Iraq. And second is that Saddam/Iraq never gave a damn wat anyone else said. So where is he say "give[b]S a damn[/b]" it also reads out Saddam, and we have already established that Saddam never gave a damn and ran Iraq like he was the country. So here also Iraq qualifies the character of not giving a damn, get it??

Mode9 kept speaking big big grammar until he became irrelevant. The bus left that man.

It's time to retire or just keep with his style knowing it will never make him money. And yes, one of the major reasons for going into music is money.

M.I. is doing a good job so far. At least he isn't shying away from dropping lines on dance tracks.

I'm tired of these sick old M.I haters. I can't say M.I's the best he isn't saying so either but Rugghead isn't anywhere near him,and guess what even Illbliss said M.I's the future how realer can it get M.I is good,f**k off him u F**GY niggas. "Talk about it" is about one of the best hip-hop albums we've had so far i don't doubt there'll be better ones, M.I is too real to be fake he's here to stay.

yeah i agree Mode9 and Ruggedman lifted the bars when it comes to Rap music in Naija but M.I. showed us the light and we are tired of repeated bullshits on the airwave by these 2 so called Kings, hehheehhehehehe, M.I.'s bar is higher now and the cant catch him.

No doubt M.I is the hottest thing right now. His style, beats, lyrics etc are wicked but Mode 9 is still the greatest naija rapper of all time. M.I appeals to a younger generation of naija hip-hop fans I guess thats why the dude seems to have taken over. He HAS lifted the bar in naija rap and the only person who can comfortably hold his own on that and an even more advanced level is mode9

Saucekid aquashed beefs with modenine not the other way round as you said,

@topic

MI is good. . . . and very good in biting modenine's lyrics as well

he is tight in delivery and flows . . .

but i still prefer modenine over him

and why should rug head and modenine retire cos of him. . . maybe rug head can retire cos he has lost focus already

but for more to retire means to kill realness in naija

I have to disagree with u. the lines u are talking about were just two lines from some people hate, and to quote MI

Same rappers wanna take a lyric from me

I GUESS ITS JUST THE PENALTY OF LEADERSHIP

I GUESS IM WHAT RAPPERS WANT TO BE AND poo

it was just those two lines he used and obviously if u see the line before that, u wud understand why he chose to quote jay-z on it,

Other rappers bite. two lines dotn make biting. hell Jay-z bites biggie does that make him less of a rapper? The whole first 5 lines of "give it to me" were biggie's rhymes, Kanye has bitten Jay. Cassidy has bitten Jay

Illegal music is exactly what it is ILLEGAL. the point of the mixtape is lifting people's beats to wrap over, So really if u dont like dude, jus say so but to be accusing him of something which is accepted in hip hop ( when its not even a whole paragraph) then theres a problem

@Tosin

The mixtape is utter garbage. Please tell me your favourite song on the tape so i can listen and see whether I made a mistake

I have heard many rappers who are better or on par with MI but  don't have the financial backing/support  that MI obviously does.

The whole Str8 Butta crew, Blackboy down, K16, 5 mics, Dark Poet, Mr Rhed, Teeto, O.D, 4th republic e.t.c can all match MI but they haven't seen the level of investment/hype that MI has.

I don't mind MI, if I want to listen to non threatening,  easy listening, weak, girlie rap but to say he is the best in Naija is silly.

I kinda agree with your point here, but what i'm saying is, what does that say about Naija hiphop. MI's flow is not original. He bites other peoples lyrics and for me, has no swagger. But still, he's better than 90% of other rappers. At least That we know of. Doesn't that worry you?  By rights, we should have at least 20 top MC's fighting for the crown. In a country of 140 million, you're happy to go around saying MI is the best we've got. N**** please.

hahahahahahaha, that is too funny. RapJunkie you're on point. They will kill us with the MI hype machine. SauceKid is living on borrowed time though. If he had released his album already, all this won't be happening. One hit record since 2007 can't last forever.

MI should go and thank his investor and PR people for the work they've done so far. I have to admit, they almost had me singing his praises. But for me, the proof is in the pudding. As public enemy said "don't believe the hype"

I've got to agree with dejiariyo on this one, apart from the swipe at Sauce Kid and Tosinaded

MI's hype machine has spammed the whole internet into making us believe he is the best rapper in Nigeria and probably the whole world/universe/ galaxy/ milky way.

Funny, i was talking to my cuz in Nigeria and she never even heard of him. Her question was 'what track of his is popular at the moment?' . . . . .errrr, there is no answer to that because none of his tracks are popular on the street.

On TV, he only has that badly produced and directed 'crowd mentality' video and a few guest appearances that are not particularly good. The knighthouse one and the one with DIPP.  

MI's  been out for 5 minutes with [b]no hit records and he is better than everybody else because he can string a couple of sentences together . . . . like ' MI's too ill  like sickness an STD like syphilis' . . . . . Na wa o!!!

The illegal mixtape is garbage and i am surprised that he would  release it so soon after his album dropped. Surely, it should have been the other way round!

I've raised the issue of M.I being a biter several times in posts on NL but the MI hype machine remains silent on that.  Now he wear suits like Naeto C  and thinks he is Kanye West . . . . .Only God will save us!!!!

another ignoramus post and some demented comments , when did coming out of artiste says another artiste career will be over, now cos we have artiste like souja boy, nas shud just retire, young juc, lil wayne shud retire.

only in nigeria will artiste who is clearing lifting and biting ryhmes will be highly celebrated as a legend, have u listened to [b]track 6 of his illegal album and jay z some people hate? [/b]listen to it and come back to reply my post, how can a biter be a lyricist, i am still wondering.

@tosin

if u want modenine and others to retire as u suggested, what do u think we be the future of nigerian hiphop,u want pple like 9ice to continue to win best hiphop album from africa?or do u think artiste making [b]noise about african american album for 2 year[/b]s can be the future of nigerian hiphop?i dont think so nigeria hiphop scene is too young for yu little brain to be calling for artiste retiring.

i like mi and some other cats but i think we shud be very careful of whatever will wish for them all, i know nigerians are like prostitute they go for who ever is raining same thing they were all saying when naeto c came out, so am not to suprised,most of yall knowledge of hiphop is to shallow, u just think hiphop is an act which is not, its a culture , rapping is just an element of it.

MI's album is good, but for him to be considered the God of naija hiphop with that album, just one album, says very very little about Naija hiphop. It's by no means a classic and just shows that Naija doesn't have any real MC's.

Why should Mode9 and Rugged retire? Please. All these people on Payola here to start topics should relax. It's so boring. Are there no other MC's In Nigeria?

Tosinaded and Khanye, everyday Mode 9, MI, Mode 9, MI. Don't you have your finger to the pulse? Who is the next guy on the come up. Thats what i'm interested in and i'm sure a lot of people as well.
