Few days ago, veteran Nigerian rapper, Mode 9 put up a video where he was listening to his 2008 track ‘My Skin Is Black’.
It was said that he did this to remind his fans of the song in relation to one of the tracks of the just released JAY-Z’s album “4:44“.
According to the Nigerian rapper, the JAY-Z song “The Story of O.J” bears similarities to his 2008 track.
“#myskinisblack #thelifeofoj #jayz #ninasimone sample!”
However, certain reports in the media claimed he was calling out JAY-Z for stealing his song.
But the rapper says he never accused JAY-Z of stealing his song and actually loves JAY-Z’s version, explaining that both songs sampled Nina Simone’s 1985 song “Four Women”.
“Yall bugging!! Sue me!!!! #myskinisblack #thelifeofoj” he shared.
