« MTV Africa Concert Lagos ft 9ice, Naeto C and The Game(Pics) | Main | BLAK TWANG - SO HARD »

November 19, 2008



Egbe!!! Finially it officially on... I hope 9 doesnt come out with predictable sh*t.


Dont get it twisted. Nine knew wut he was doing when he made that Talkin to you song. Hes tryin 2 tow d line of innocence; like he aint d one courting beef. No! mum, he started it!!! Negro please! They both have their strengths and weaknesses.

I still respect Ruggedy Baba 4 his shot at Kenny and D1 many years back. Just when Naija music was being monopolised by those guys, with AIT and RayPower carrying mostly artists signed by Kennis Music, he stepped up with U no fit stop my flow... I am Ruggedman, I no fear u! and that shook Lagos big time. PLUS, the 9ice we all love 2day got his 1st break on a Ruggedman song.
That said, Mode9 is definitely a better lyricist. His old song Elbow Room or sumthin like that was madd good. Lets see wut hes cooked up on dis ish. Ill be sampling it as soon as it drops.


Whats with the swearing?


mode nine's another crazy lyricist... that line "dis baba dat baba... you not a father, you got intellect myopia... so when i diss a baba (addis ababa)it's not Ethiopia..." is pure genius! i rank 2nd him after M.I (i wld have ranked him first, but he's too hardcore rap for me abeg... lol)


I think Mode Nine is corny, personally.

Yeah, he's a lyricist, but his delivery has no impact, and sometimes he's struggling to find the balance between his natural voice and accent and the Americanized lilt that's associated with English hip-hop. I heard a tape he sent to D1 of Dead Prez with his flow in place and then comments on how many bars he'd left for Prez, complete with sucking up at the beginning. Dude's a crumbsnatcher.
