Recall that on Thursday, February 8, 2018, M.I let the goodies out of the bag by playing unreleased tracks from his next body of work.
From what has been heard so far, the tracks sound lit including 'On Code' featuring South African rap star AKA and a song with alte rapper Ajebutter 22. It also seems that M.I is channeling the sounds and vibe of the young, alternative scene in Nigeria.
According to M.I, his next project was ready two years ago, but he started the project all over again when fast rising singer, Odunsi and producer GMK told him the album needed more work.
The title of the project is 'Rendezvous: The Playlist' and was made available on Friday, February 9, 2018.
M.I’s “Yxng Dxnzl” album to be released in May 2018
M.I's tweet today was his way of reminding us to brace for his fourth studio album, “Yxng Dxnzl” which he promised would be released in May 2018.
The Nigerian Hip-hop icon made the announcement in style, via a series of videos posted on Instagram. You can watch them below.
'You Rappers Should Fix Up Your Life'
In 2017, M.I Abaga stirred the Nigerian Music industry with the release of controversial single, ‘You rappers should fix up your life.'
The single received numerous responses from rappers. OAP/Rapper N6 responded in a very candid track which set the pace for arguments. This escalated in December 2017, and got physical at SDC’s Palmwine Music Fest.
M.I has already moved past that, releasing a new single and visuals, titled ‘Your father’, featuring his signee, Dice Ailes.
