Award-winning Rapper, MI Abaga finally reveals why he left his former record label, Chocolate City after 13 years with them in a recent interview.

The rapper refused to give details about his exit but in a recent interview, he gave an insight into what really happened. MI who recently released a new body of work “Judah” under his new record label revealed that he left because he needed to move on. According to him, all he wants is to try new things musically and has no beef with the record label.
In his words:
“Nothing happened to the relationship [with Chocolate City]. We are family for life.Chocolate City is family. It is time for me to do a new thing musically. Generally, I have had a no-press policy on this issue. The reason is that I don’t want my words to be twisted. I am careful who I answer. The rapper stressed that he is grateful to Chocolate City for all he achieved during his time with them.
After a while, it is time to do a new thing and I am grateful for everything that was. I think right now, it is time for incredible music and for MI to move.”
