Our Friday edition is our favourite edition! But before TGIF sets in proper, here are the biggest stories you missed yesterday – and others that unraveled while you slept.
Rappers, MI and N6 are tweetfighting and it’s not looking good
When Choc City rapper, MI released his controversial track, You Rappers Should Fix Up Your Lives where he berated other rappers in the industry for under-performing, Cool FM OAP and rapper, N6 was one of the few who responded.
In a rap track titled, Fix Up Your Life, N6 called MI out pointedly asking him to “learn to be humble” and “watch his mouth” but added a note: “No beef intended. Just a friendly Joust. #ForTheCulture”.
Nearly 3 weeks after N6’s response, MI seems to have just come to terms with his L.
He replied to a tweet on the Nigerian rap industry yesterday calling N6 “trash” and a “vampire that wants to suck young artists blood”.
N6 must have woken up to the insults as he fired back calling MI a “closet homosexual midget” and dared him to a rap battle.
It may soon be raining diss tracks, guys! Anticipate!!

Taylor Swift’s Reputation is out
Months after she nearly broke the internet with the first single off the body of works, Look What You Made Me Do, Taylor Swift has now released her hugely anticipated album, Reputation.
Swift dropped the 15-track album minutes before midnight on Thursday, although some tracks had leaked online earlier in the day.
Reputation will not be available to streaming sites for now, as part of Swift’s campaign against streaming services who pay artistes low royalties. It is, however, available for purchase on iTunes.
