M.I Abaga The Guy Album
M.I Abaga The Guy Album… Following the success of THE GUY single, M.I releases his 12th studio album Featuring Nas, Olamide, Duncan Mighty, Wande Coal, Phyno, The Cavemen and others.
On his 12th project, The most decorated rapper in Africa infuses hip-hop with elements of Afropop, amapiano and highlife whilst addressing themes such as legacy, mental health, masculinity and romance. âI think I was recording this album before it had purpose. Then it sort of crystallised around what I was going through in my life.â he tells Apple Music.
With the global pandemic providing an opportunity for introspection, the veteran rapper ruminated on facets of life, love and society. âComing out of COVID, I think it was a time for self-discovery for a lot of people. As I looked inward, I became really aware of how the world can sometimes rip away our confidence and take our essence away.â
Largely underpinned by slick bars and melodic soundbeds, The Guy is a clarion call to keep our collective spirits intact. âThe album is a statement that no matter whatâs happening around you, youâre making it through, conquering and achieving great things,â.. Enjoy!
