Vector Is A Brilliant & More Matured Rapper Than MI…Do You Agree?

Taiwo Oluwafemi | - Leave A Comment

Although MI is regarded as arguably the greatest Nigerian rapper alive, many are still of the opinion he is overrated based on the belief that he drops too many regular lines and not so dope lyrics that is expected of a rapper who is regarded as “the greatest.”

Lots of music fans believe instead of according to him such huge title, one of his greatest rivals, Vector, is more deserving of it. Many believe Vector is a better rapper than MI as a result of his hardcore lyrics, deep and very difficult to decode punchlines (which after eventually decoded, blows your mind away) and enviable word plays on his records.

For example, about 10 years back, legendary rapper, Modenine took the Headies “Lyricist on the roll” award as his own for quite a number of years until he was stripped off it by Vector who later went on to win it for a couple of years more. Stripping Modenine off that award was a thing many considered to be impossible as at that time as a result of the legend’s immense rap qualities too, but due to Vector’s brilliance and ingenuity when spitting his lines, he knocked the title off the legendary rapper. This further aids the notion of the fans that believe Vector is a greater rap asset than MI.

The argument still never ceases among Hip-Hop fans as to who is the better rapper between MI and Vector though, while many will choose MI as a better rapper due to his profound success in the rap game, as much number as that many would choose Vector as the better one due to his brilliant display of exquisite rap lyrics on his records and others’.

With all of the words above, do you agree Vector is a brilliant & more matured rapper than MI?

    Vector over M.I when it comes to Rap.

    There are both good and matured in their craft, but critically speaking, Vector is more brilliant and lyrical than Mi. Thou, Vector neglected the hip hop culture and chosed to blend with the commercial side which is where we all feel the better pay is coming from, he’s still doing pretty good I must say, ranging from his barz, word plays, metaphors, rhymes, flows, delivery and choice of beat, I must confess that Vector is a better lyricist than Mi……I Still got maximum respect for the both of them, because I learnt music from them. #Teslim #YungDenzel

    You’re very stupid for this article .. MI is the best

    You as the writer as biased already giving vector all the credit. You must live the judgment to the fans. For me mi is better.

    How can Vector be a better lyricist than M.i or more matured? When Young denzel’s lyrics are like deep scriptures, and Vector’s raps usually sound like A, b, c, d or some other nursery rhymes and mostly he is trying to imitate Jay-Z?

    Vector winning an award from Modenine means nothing if you consider that the awards dont say nothing about an artiste true worth or ability but rather only tells us the preferences of the award judges, just like you the writer in this article.

    I would rather go with the judgements of other good rappers and lyricists on them, and till now that demographics shows M.i reverred above Vector anytime anyday not just in Nigeria but all over Africa, even by South African rappers, who seem to be presently leading in the game as long as Africa to the globe is concerned.

    You also claimed a statistics without showing a statistics, you claim as many as would say m.i is the better one, there are many as such who would or rather who say the same about Vector, hmmm how did you come to that conclusion? You have a verifiable research statistics to back up that claim? Or you actually just mean that as many of your friends that acclaim M.i to be the best, a similar amount claim the same about Vector?

    We can also speak of their commercial numbers
    , this doesnt necessarily tell ones skills, but atleast it can show us to a degree who the consumers believe is worth their cash.

    Lastly maybe you the writer can show us your rap credentials and we would take this post any more serious than a propaganda. And please Vector is not M.i’s closest rival, lyrically speaking they are not even in the same class, young denzel is the chairman, vector is not even a board member, hehehe modenine yes, but certainly not Vector, haba bros how far you na? Vector better than M.i how?

    I rest my case jare. They are both good on their individual and respective lanes, but while Vector is one of the kings on the federal express way of rap among other vehicles, M.i is all by himself on an airplane runway, get that please and stop trying to bring down the idol.

    Point of correction you did not say Vector was ‘M.i’s closest rival’ but ‘one of M.i’s greatest rivals’ , just thought to point that out so i dont accuse you of what you did not say, nevertheless your whole write up could easily be confused to be saying that, not just that even but that Vector is better and M.i is just over rated and even is numbers dont actually mean nothing.

    Worst of all, the awards you speak of is ‘Headies’ , which Nigerian artistes dont even so much as respect or talk more of revere anymore, at least from the treatments and body language of some artistes towards ‘Headies’ in very recent years shouldnt that be telling us something?

    You can compare Vector to Ice Prince but not M.i please, even Jesse Jags would use Vector to mop the floor lyrically, how much more the chairman?

    Nevertheless, its an admirable endeavour for Vector to want to go at the King and challenge him for his throne, but that only makes him a challenger not necessarily a great or one of the greatest rivals, i feel they first have to be on the same level or at least close for Vector to qualify as a rival or much more one of the greatest rivals.

    Mr writer see what you have caused now? I actually love Vector, but you got me up here sounding like i got a problem with him or something, abeg Vector and all my other Vector fans no vex jor ?, lets enjoy our Vector but lets let the Veteran (M.i) be biko.

    Omg do you remember vividly that without Jesse there’s no MI during there misunderstanding(BTW mi and jesse) do you notice anything like achievement on Chocolate city then?? Bro I have checkmate both 2rappers take it or leave it VECTOR still brilliant and more matured than MI.

    My people have said it all,young denzel is the chairman and vector is no where close to Mr incredible they’re not even on the same lane. Mi all d way

    This one is mad o….There is no past glory in rap, you can only give credit to their crafts not their personalities, we are talking about rap game so let’s face it. Vector is brilliant, he’s a good Lyricist and I think lyrics is part of the component of rap. I’m not disputing MI, but MI self know for him mind say vector is the greatest (na only 3 years chairman dy use, but kings liveth)

  13. Avatar

    @Tundex you are right, about the neccesity of Jesse Jags at Choc city as a producer, and also its also glaring that when it comes to top off the dome freestyle, jesse is king among choc city. There is no crime for a producer to bring out the best in one, besides there are better lyricist than B.i.g you never heard and would never hear, only because they didn’t have a perfect matching producer for themselves. However, it dont matter how good the producer is, if you’re not gpod, you’re not good, not to abuse anyone but lets take a look at former mohit records Don Jazzy brought out the best in Dbanj, they fitted perfectly but despite how good Don Jazzy is, Prince Omoba didnt have the same buzz as Dbanj.

    Hahahaha @Khalifa back to sender! ?. Anyways you are not right about past glory in rap, how comes the likes of Nas, Em, Rakim, Jigga, B.i.g, Pac are still held in high esteem as the greatest in hip hop till date? You think it has to do with their recent or current artistic works or something? If you think so, then please mention the persons and the current works, thank you

    The writer of this article is high on cheap drugs. And y’all who claim Vector being better than MI probably have been listening to RnB all your lives.

    MI is what rap is! Not to shade Vector and his cheesy lines, but there’s no contest here.

    What is ur definition of brilliance? Vector over Abaga? Your are high

  17. Avatar

    @Facts and figures please Sorry, what’s your own definition of a great rapper? Tbh calling MI the greatest rapper is overrated,
    the two artistes are great. Now, we have to know your justification why MI is the greatest bc you’ve already condemned what the writer said all bc he wrote about things we can easily understand about the two artistes but it’s hard for you to accommodate the truth.
    Lastly you made comparism about the foreign artistes, I didn’t know why diddy is left out? his he not a rapper as well. Does that made him to be good like drake? You should know the differences btw legend and being the greatest.

    Vector whose songs are mostly laced with sexual metaphors and songs about weed better than MI? Really, like Jay Z would ask in the Renegade, do you fools listen to music or do you just skip through it?

    Shit write-ups like the one right here are reasons why Nigerian hop-hop has failed to evolve. Wack asses like this one digging out lame comparisons. The punchlines, wordplays, and entendres in IM2 alone will kill off any fucking Hip-hop project (mixtape or album) ever put out in Naija till date. Wack ass music blogs and shit. Foh!!!!

    @Khalifa did you say Diddy is supposed to be mentioned among the greatest rappers? Did you like legit actually bring Diddy and Drake into this convo? Atleast drake sef but diddy among greatest rappers? Ewooooooo… walai i give up on your matter lol

    M.i is the greatest, no debate. Dont worry Vector is still young, he still has the opportunity to also make it to that level.

    Nevertheless, rap is a competitive sport, so its like a curse, that you almost must religiously say you are better than everyone else. But las las we all go dey okay.

  47. Avatar

    Lol. After Illegal Music 1,2 and 3 nobody, I repeat NOBODY in Nigeria’s rap scene should be compared to M.I in lyricism. Then talk about Crowd Mentality. Even MI2 that was more of a commercial album was fire. Then the Chairman, then Rendezvous, and then Yung Denzl that was fucking deep. Whole album sounded like a sermon that left you silent after serious self evaluation. Have guys come on na. Vector who? How many projects does he have? And which of them is more lyrical than any of the Illegal Musics? Abeg make una allow people hear word. Baba na baba. MI is AFRICA’s greatest. But ask some Yoruba people and you’ll be surprised that some of them think Olamide is a better rapper than Vector lol. Abeg sit down. Next post please!

    What’s my business with their maturity? This tooxclusive editors sef! SMH

    So guys are still complaining about this shit here… then why mi always ignore vec on a rap battle then??? just asking? @Leoni I agree with you man…

    So, guys are still complaining about this shit here, then why mi always ignore vector on rap battle?? Becuz if truly you’re capable of yourself why can’t him(mi) face vector and prove to us how good he’s @Leoni I dey with you… if you guys can remember vividly after vector did diss track against mode9., a week later mode9 knows how quality vector is then.
    I overheard some point above about mi records, please can anyone tell me about mode9 achievement till date???
    Inconclusion, VECTOR IS A BRILLIANT AND MORE MATURE RAPPER THAN MI ABAGA PERIOD.

    how can you even make such comparison, go check the stats before you come and open your mouth here…just name two single projects of pure hip hop that vector has dropped and and i will name four that M.I has dropped, you people out here talking about rap battles when M.I did a rap battle on Coke studio with the best rappers from around Africa,khaligraph Jones and hhhp inclusive and he technically killed that shit, you comparing M.I to vector is like comparing Kendrick with Meek mill…come on do ya all even listen to rap? or you just vibe to ararararara, orororororo…you all comparing the greatest M.I to what’s even his name again? need to fix up.
