On this episode of Moni Talks, I decided to switch things ups. MI Abaga recently dropped an album called Rendezvous so I decided to get him on the show and we talked about the process of making the album and also discussing every track on it.
The meet up. The night out. This playlist is for that!!!
Featuring some of Africa’s finest, M.I Abaga curates an ultimate playlist for a night out in the fast paced up class part of Lagos ; Lekki. Taking you through a journey that starts after a long day on the grind, the chill at the crib, the link up with the crew, the pre-turn up, the real vibe, the turn up, the decline and then the morning!
Rendezvous is the African Hiphop lenegd’s 7th body of work; featuring tracks recorded over various timelines and cities with an example of ‘On Code’ ft. AKA being recorded in 2016 or even further back, ‘Kososhi’ ft. Wande Coal who laid down his part in 2014.
M.I Abaga is famous for hoarding songs and finally we get to listen to some of it. The 15 tracked ‘playlist’ features Falz, Ajebutter and Odunsi in what seems to be a fan favorite ‘Lekki’ if reactions since the live stream listening session and the release at midnight is anything to go by. It also features South Africa’s very own fill Up master; Cassper Nyovest in ‘Soup’, Moelogo in ‘One Way’, Dice Ailes in ‘Your Father’ , CKay and Joules Da Kid in ‘Wats D Level’, Nonso Amadi in ‘Playlist’, Yung l, U.a.X in ‘The Crew’, Terry Apala in ‘Jiggy’, Santi and Tomi Thomas in ‘Jungle’ amongst a few more.
Some production credits to Nonso Amadi, Chopstix, CKay, Chillz, TMXO, Higo, Odunsi The Engine, and G-Plus
This playlist leads up to his forth coming studio album ‘Yxng Dxnzl’ which is scheduled for release in May this year.
