Say It Again, “M.I just Killed it But I Rap in the Afterlife” ~@XO_Senavoe, X.O Bit on M.I Illegal Music 2 Mixtape


M.I Abaga dropped his latest album today, Illegal Music 2. Congratulations to him. The creative process is never quite as easy as many, especially outside of the creative industries, think. is a great place to listen to M.I’s tracks. The track with South Africa’s HHP is solid, M.I really experiments with different styles and sound. However, it sounds like he was in an angry space when he created it. Most of the tracks I heard on 360nobs is like he has a point to prove. Does he?

In any event, most impressive, for me, is his track with X.O Senavoe. The most impressive line from the ‘X.O Bit’ track by M.I featuring X.O Senavoe is, “M.I just killed it but I rap in the afterlife.” All I can say is, “Say It Again” and it is good to see these two finally collaborate.

You all have no idea what such powerful wordplay does to an already certified Wordsmith like myself, especially on what has been a crazy busy day. For starters, it is mentally rejuvenating. I told you all before, I patiently await . . . I wait for X.O Senavoe’s EP.

  1. I think it is past biased fan at this point, it is not certified stan…lol…on another note, Illegal Music 2 is a great project, but far from M.I. having a point to prove about himself, far from it. For me it was more like, yeah I am good but have you heard these other people? Every feature was on point, it brings these lesser known artist in front of us and says listen to them…we are trying to build rap in Nigeria and it is more than just me.

    1. Thank you for that perspective. M.I is talented and so far, I have all of his music work. I am not sure how I feel about this new one. Will listen again.

      Thanks for your comment.
