Veteran rapper Modenine is back and this time he has enlisted soul singer ‘Maka‘ who recently released her debut EP –The Truth– for his newly released single “No Matter What“.

Laced with nothing short of good production, good & somewhat honest flows coupled with a flawless chorus; No Matter What is far from an average hip-hop joint.

Modenine Featuring Maka is Produced by Black Intelligence and is the second single off the INSULIN album soulful and insightful.

here are the lyrics ……………….
Verse 1 (Modenine)
Legendary mode , that’s what I’m blessed to be
But they trying ta force me out like a refugee ( I’m falling )
Aint nobody rescue me
And I DonT give a rats booty bout a brand begging me to judge or rap for free I’m all about my P ( gimmie the money )
I know you really want the death of me
I’m Tupac middle finger out the SUV
Sooner or later you’ll be kissing on my effigy
I’m magical with words the more you look the less you see
You no be G.O.D so who the F you be
The industry got me pressed to Pee
Its getting difficult to hold it when they bugging giving less to me
It makes no sense to me
The shows are next to free
And now you devil worshipers are trying to pester me
I believe in God you can control my destiny
So quit trying to stifle my release like a vasectomy

Chorus ( Maka )

It feels like I’m 6 feet under water
And that’s just when I gotta let go
Cos I know that no matter what
No matter what 2X
I’ll still stay afloat

Verse 2,( Modenine )

It was all good just a week ago
Now its all sour time for me to ether foes
Stomping ground flow
I’m about to lift a soul
Battle to the last breath ,never beef us bro
Or pay the reapers tow for hating on the Vam – pire
Forever young , the black peter pan
Wish me well otherwise you better delete your plans
Man ah man ah not real
Man ah man ah hologram
Who you dey follow yarn trip and get ganged up
Sulking cos I didn’t follow back … Man up
You’re the type to clam up when you get ran up
Pushing for a fair fight
Gimmie them Air Nikes
IG F-boys will kill for a mere like
I’m dancing rings around them , they thinking my boots are Ali’s
I rap hard tripping new groups of barbies
My CD they do buy ( dey Dubai ) from here to Abu Dhabi

Chorus 2X

And i will stay a float
No I won’t drown
No matter what 2X

Illbliss Drops new single ‘Ayakata’ feat Falz The Bahd Guy

Ill Bliss Oga Boss has dropped the first single of his anticipated summer EP ‘The kid from New Haven‘.  The single, ‘Ayakata’ (which roughly translates in pidgin English to ‘E don scatter’) features, in demand, rapper, Falz the Bahd Guy and kicks off with an acknowledgment from Falz of the power shift in the Nigerian Music Industry to the new school.  Illy Gatti (Oga Boss) as a boss, acknowledges that change and also throws in some ‘shade’ of family disloyalty.

Who is he referring to? Well, I guess you have to listen to the track and make up your own mind.

Listen and let us know how many thumbs up (doug thumb) it deserves.
