Video: Modenine’s “Rhyme Tight” Video + Mixtape

Modenine has been buzzing within the Nigerian hip hop scene for quite some time now. Some might remember the mixtape he put out last year over some DJ Premier beats (Modenine Over Premo, see link below). His newest video, “Rhyme Tight,” is a track off his Da Vinci Mode album. The track takes the classic Biggie line and flips it into a hook. Check the video above and the link to his mixtape below.
