Vector and M.I Abaga, Nigerian heavyweight rappers, have come through with ‘Crown of Clay’, their much-awaited collaboration.
The rappers announced the release of the project featuring Pheelz, Nigerian music producer, on Friday.
The less than four-minute track sees the duo crooning about their seeming dynasty in the country’s rap landscape and how they remain unchallenged.
It also sees them reflecting on their lives as Africans and blacks’ battle with socio-economic challenges as well as the quest for freedom from white supremacy.
Welcome to the bloodline of the black kings, real life, black sins. The black church, black thoughts, black sins Uganda, Bobby Winе, magazines. Newsflash but old news, likе sins. We can’t speak, judge me, my genes…,” they could be heard singing.
“But you can’t hold the voices, some of them go burst out. We have way to many voices, this is clubhouse. I am African and blessed. I hold it down even when I face distress. The kind of punches wey fit make your face depress.”
Both artistes have established themselves as household names in the country’s entertainment industry with their characteristic creative rap lines in their musical projects.
The collaboration, however, comes after a protracted rivalry between the pair that has seen them put out diss tracks and strategically tackle each other with their artistic strides.
MI had in 2019 released ‘The Viper’, a beef song aimed at Vector, while the latter hit back with ‘Judas the Rat’.
