Yesterday, the internet went into a frenzy upon the release of a video by ace rapper Modenine, which implied legendary rapper Jay Z, stole his song, MY SKIN IS BLACK as his [Jay Z] The Life Of OJ bears similarities to the 2008 track.
Well, the rapper has again released a new video, saying he never mentioned Jay Z stole his song that he infact got mad love for JAY-Z’s version. He further explained that both songs sampled Nina Simone‘s 1985 song “Four Women“.
He captioned the new video:
Of course his followers were divided on this as they took to the comment section to bare their thoughts:
