“I should be close to retirement/ but none of you rappers inspiring/ none of you pass the requirements/ I can’t retire yet then,” MI Abaga had rapped on his most controversial song yet.
Entitled ‘You Rappers Should Fix Up Your Lives’, the song is the lamentation of one seeking to take a back seat, but cannot, because he feels the onus is on him to carry on the rap torch.
After ten years in the game of hip hop, three albums, a compilation album and three mixtapes, MI is coming back with a new body of work.
The rapper born Jude Abaga made the announcement of his fourth studio album on Instagram.
To justify the four-year wait for a new project, the rapper said he “will never rush music”. He said his attempt at putting out a hurried project had backfired in the past.
“People ask me to rush and just put out music. I have tried and failed horribly because music is too important to me,” the Chocolate City president said.
“This project has taken so long.. but I promise it is worth it.
“Every project for me is a piece of my life. I will never rush music because I respect my fan base too much.”
MI’s last album ‘The Chairman’ was released in 2014. Afterwards, he released a compilation album with Chocolate City.
In 2016, he put out a mixtape called ‘Illegal Music 3: The Finale’. His new album will be releaed in May.
