“If I Remove All His Pop Songs, Olamide Is One Of The Dopest Rappers” – M.I Abaga
In a recent interview with “Ori Covesations”, Rapper, MI Abaga, who just recently released an album, spoke about the many issues bothering the music industry as well as the state of hip-hop genre in Nigeria.
In the process of the conversation, a 2015 clip from an interview showed YBNL boss Olamide, defending his decision to not remain a hardcore rapper and seemingly mocked those doing so.
MI after watching the video, had this to say;
“In terms of the video, i can’t speak from their own vantage point of view, but i can imagine that when they were coming up, they were being attacked for what they were doing because if i remove all the pop music that Olamide has done and i just look at his hip-hop catalog, he’s one of the dopest rappers.
“Everything he said he contradicted it by his catalog, he’s the metaphor rapper, he’s such a dope rapper metaphorically, in terms of hardcore, what is hardcore? Hardcore is about the sound, carriage of yourself, stuff like that.. Who’s more hardcore than Olamide?”
