Popular Indigenous rapper, Tobechukwu Melvin Ejiofor aka Illbliss has berated his colleague, Phenom over his recent comment about Mode 9.
Phenom who sat down for a chat on The Yarns podcast said he does not want to end up like Mode 9, and he would rather be as commercially successful as Phyno.
The ‘Murder Dem’ crooner said he recently visited Phyno’s luxurious house and also dreams of a future where he has Phantoms parked in his garage.
According to him, although he is not trying to talk down on anybody, he believes it is a mental problem for rappers like Mode 9 to be wearing baggy jeans and talking about Hip Hop being a culture.
Phenom said; “I don’t see Mode 9 as someone I want to be like. I would rather be somebody that is commercially successful. I was Phyno’s house few days ago, I wanna have Phantom parked in my house”
Reacting, Illbliss expressed disappointment and said even Phyno will not disrespect Hip Hop pioneers that came before him.
The rap icon who took to his Twitter account to correct Phenom, said Modenine is a living legend who is respected for his contributions to the Hip Hop culture.
He tweeted; “Even Phyno would never disrespect the Hiphop pioneers that came before him, with phantoms parked in his garage. Really truly disappointed Phenom. Mode9 is a living legend, alive and well, incredibly decorated and respected for his contributions to Hiphop culture. I hate the disregard!”
