These dudes sre good, but whos better?
For me Mode 9 is better than M.I on the lyrics/delivery but M.I got an edge over m9 with swag and charisma. To say the fact that's the only thing i'm feeling M.I on (swag). I don't see myself copping the album "talk about it" but I def see me coppin' Paradigm shift anyday. i've heard a couple of songs on air they sound to me like child's play thing. what do u expect from a mode 9 album? suspense, intrigue, word play, punch lines, metaphors! i mean lyrics like i'm so underground the devil's like yo who down there or even though u own an arcade u ain't got game!
truth be told M9 is the best there ever will be out of naija! these are my thoughts so don't take it personal yo!
@Rhymestein I agree with some of your points except flow and versatility. M.I has better flows and he is just as versatile as Mode Nine. And Safe is not his only creative song. What about Fast Money, Fast Cars, Crowd Mentality, or what about those tracks on his 1 album. Mode Nine is better but M.I is very good too.
@all Please try as much as possible to ignore DJ bumsquirt
And besides MI bites modenine lyrics openely !!!
Please u guys should stop comparing a Code Monkey to a Geek (Programming Terms) !!!
Modenine is by far berra than him in the real sense of hiphop
MI is better in delivery no doubt but he himself confessed Modenine is an inspiration to him. . .
Besides, MI and Modenine are cool together so lets not stir up unnessecary beefs here. . .
They are both currently working on a Joint Mixtape. .
this comparison is baseless.M.I has not done enough for him to be compared wit mode or rugged.Let em get on a track n c wot happens,u all knw wot happen to kanye in classic,terribly murdered
m.i is ok,beta in some aspects bt overall mode takes dis.I wil break in down
vocals:m.i wins,his voice is cool
flows:quite close bt giv it to mode.Cos some tracks mode goes tru d whole verse non stop witout soundin strained
originality:i feel m.i aint original,this wasnt how he rapped in 2007,his vocals changed now soundin lyk wayne n sometyms kanye.Mode sound lyk him
Versatiliy:to me versatility in rap,is nt ur ability to rap n sing,its ur ability to talk abt different subject matters excellently while rapping lyk baba Nas.Mode wins this.
Creativity:mode wins this,wit songs lyk pentium ix,contradiction,its a goal,arsenal anthem,a hero comes home.M.I only got safe(y i say m.i has done lil to compare wit pioneers)
lyrics:mode excels wit clever metaphors,good wordplay,ok punchlines.He shows his age n experience here.M.I is tryin hard to please lyric concious ppl,tryin 2 wordplay(i solo lyk isolo is un4giveable)if na cyrus or 2shotz talk am.E for beta, M.I is lyrically ok
Beats:beats does nt tell whetha a rapper is good or not.They r many sub genres of rap,someone myt get inspired by soul rap boombap,jazz rap,rock rap,pop rap,neptunes,southern beats.That doesnt mean the rest kinds are outdated n whack.I personally lyk d east coast beats.
I go 4 MI evryday. Delivery,Good Beats,gr8 Vocabulary n Accents,nice Rhymes and Lyrically Above Average. Wat else do y'all need in a Rapper?
My Recordz r 2hot, U can't 'shelf' me, I'm like a Dude's bosom,Nigga u can't Milk me, M.i feeling gud
My wordz r Vehicle,watch d way i Ride-I
Neva Battle emcees,I just do Lyrical Drive-By, SICK! M.I pens. Wat else do y'al need?
bros u dey dere when im dey write im songs.The famous elbow room was done within 3hrs aside d hook.U dey talk say if e no go fit rap if d poo its unexpected,dis guy was in b/c,freestyled 2ce at different parts of d show.I rememba a pal tellin me he freestyld abt sound sultan in a tv show.The guy release pentium ix(21 trax)not too long e pluribus(21 trax)some mixtapes later n paradigm shift n anoda mixtape of 19 tracks.I dont get wot u r sayin.If i may ask wot makes u d best rapper?Doin pop/rap,party tracks,pure rap.How many tracks does mode battle rap in his album?.Bros talk wit facts.Abeg, I dnt lyk it when new acts(m.i,naeto c n etc) r compared wit veterans.(mode n ruggedman).Its disrespectful n annoyin.Wetin .M.I tey pass ruggedman?Lyrics?I dnt think so.
the only area,he beat em is his vocals n makin d recent pop choruses/rap thing.The rest mode,rugged,od,sauce n terry beat am.

mode 9 reminds me of cannibus. the fact that they both intimidate lyrically is dont make them the best. m9 takes his time to arrange most of those bars which is a combination of his ability and the internet. i bet u its easier for m.i to cross over to m9 style than it is for vice versa. besides if u wake both of them up in the middle of the night for an impromptu ryhme session, i think m.i. wins hands down. my main point is even though m9 is really good, M.I is more natural.
no mind dem,because one fool dey carry dictionary about use am write lyrics for some mumu who will shout whether dey understand or not.
I remember when we dey school n all dis student union leaders blow grammer all we do den is to shout ige iwe,not minding if d words were used correctly or not.
d same thing is with most mode nine fan dey dont understand wat he spits.If u want to confirm dis get a mode ix fan around u maybe ur office, ur house etc,tell him/her to analyse his lyrics na dat time u go know how far.
