M.I

Mayorkun Fields A Super Team Of M.I, Vector, Sinzu & Ycee On ‘Geng’ Naija Remix

Mayorkun scored a big one with ‘Geng’. Released to kick off the year, the song has been one of the most successful Nigerian songs in the past couple months. The song also generated it’s viral moment when it dropped with several acts jumping on the beat to deliver their covers. This cultural moment has now morphed into a four-track EP the DMW star titles “Geng Remix.” This compilation includes remixes from different geographic zones featuring an all-star cast of Kwesi Arthur, Ms.Banks, Ricky Rick and others.

For the Naija remix, Mayorkun taps some of the best rappers we have around, feilding a super team of Sinzu, Ycee, Vector and M.I. Over the all too familiar Quebeat-production, Sinzu opened the floor with a fire verse which we had initially heard on Twitter. Sinzu rides the beat like a wave with a bullish delivery that set the bar high for the other rappers coming behind. Ycee followed up with his cheeky verse enwrapped in multiple flows. Vector, however, did not live up to the hype, coming through with a lukewarm verse while M.I came out guns blazing at detractors to close the record.

Enjoy this record above and let us know who you think killed it.

Vector Bounces Back With New Diss Track, ‘Judas The Rat’

Diss Track Backstory

One of the most exciting things in these Buhari times is the belligerent energy hovering across the Nigerian hip-hop scene. What started with a daring declaration by Blaqbonez ascribing himself as the best rapper in Africa has now degenerated into a warzone where anyone could catch a bullet. “For the culture” has now slowly morphed into something way more bitter and grubby with inflated egos and (re)opened sores.

However, the most exciting of these battles has been the M.I vs Vector main-event which has resulted in now a total of four diss tracks in just about three weeks. And it doesn’t seem to be over. Not just not yet.

New Diss Track

In response to M.I Abaga’s petty and brutal missile,’The Viper‘, Vector has also decided to step his boots in the mud in his new ‘Judas The Rat‘. With his gloves off, Vector doesn’t mince words as he comes for M.I’s legacy. He brings up personal dirt surrounding the former Chocolate City boss, especially his strained relationship with his brother, Jesse Jagz.

For all it’s worth, we hope these rappers can put their beef aside for a minute and make good of their promise by releasing their much-anticipated EPs, “Judas” and “Vibes Before Teslim.” But till then, listen to this new diss track above and tell us who you think is winning this battle.
