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. 360Nobs.com 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.
