"Look at my history, I have beef with someone, I mention their names. 'Akpata' wasn't targeted at anyone. A few people went to town saying it was targeted at Olamide but it wasn't. I'm saying that because a lot of people have implied that because I said a line about DaGrin, I was dissing Olamide.
If anyone got the wrong idea, I apologize. The line about DaGrin was more about DaGrin than it was about anyone else.
DaGrin was a hero.He was a real success story for the streets.He was special, he had an energy that was like nothing else.
When he died, nothing else mattered to entertainers; he was that special.
I think Olamide is super creative and so is Reminisce and I think so far they have done great with indigenous rap but DaGrin will stay in a special place"
MI responded to a question by fellow Rapper Phenom in the "Rap Battle " segment of RELOADED Magazine's Nov issue
The controversial lyrics read:
"Omo I miss dagrin the streets they miss him too
Cause ever since he left we got nothing to listen to
These rappers missed his shoe
Nobody speaking truth"
