A Study Of Self Worth : Yxng Dxnzl. M.I Abaga’s Take On Toxic Masculinity

I must warn you, before you read this post . I’m a proper fan of M.I’s music. He deserves every adulation he will get from me. He has an impressive body of work. I really like the way he has been able to evolve his art form over the years  . But even though I really dig his music, I think I have been always capable of  having an unbiased conversation about M.I Abaga.

Even though has such an impressive body of work (5 Studio Albums , 3 Critically Acclaimed mixtapes) M.I Abaga has been always able to polarize opinion on his skill sets.

A Dramatic Life

We all know life is so fickle you see and sadly half the time, the drama we experience has no music to accompany it. Take for example, someone is seated at home, having a laugh with a couple of friends when he receives a call that makes him weak to his knees. His mum has just had an accident and passed away on the way to the hospital. He cries uncontrollably and is inconsolable. People come visiting, sharing condolences, etc. You know the drill. Its dramatic yea but missing the extra flair. Continue reading “A Dramatic Life”
