Nigeria’s G.O.A.T rapper and top lyricist, Mode9, is at it again. In May, the rapper had dropped a surprise project titled “Long Story Short” a collaboration EP with producer, Kid Konnect. The EP is over a decade ago, sometime in 2007.
Recall that the rapper declared his retirement from releasing albums and performing music in Nigeria. It seems all that is behind him now. Modo is churning out both old and new music and we cant help but wonder where the energy is coming from.
“Long Story Short” is a 5-track collaboration with experienced hip-hop producer, Kid Konnect. He made this know to his followers on social media via an Instagram post.
But this time around, he is giving us a new material. He collaborates with Black Intelligence, one of the best hip-hop producers in Nigeria. Black Intelligence is renown for his work with rapper Boogey.
This is not the first time we are having a Modenine x Black Intelligence joint. The pair have had a long standing partnership, together they created magic on 2016’s “No Matter What” single.
Last week Saturday, Modo wrote a tweet announcing the arrival of the new project. Now it’s here. The 20-track Album is titled “Hence4th”.
I spoke with Black Intelligence. And the producer told me;
“Some part of it was recorded this year (2018). It has been in the works since 2015. Pushed back as we felt it wasn’t right yet. More tracks were added and here we are”
This might just be the best hip-hop project out in 2018. Hence4th is currently on all digital music stores.
