It was about 2days after D.I.Sguise left Dagrin for London that we heard the sad story that the Nigerian Rap symbol had gotten into a fatal car accident. I(RalphBB) called DISguise up and asked if this was true what we were hearing on the news, he said YES I couldn’t believe this. DISguise mentioned “I just performed with Dagrin at a show 2days ago, we hung out had fun, and now he got into an accident, God knows if I hadn’t left 2days earlier I would probably have been in the same car accident too”. I assured him everything would be ok, but a couple days later we got the news that DAGRIN had passed away. It was a shocker knowing fully well that I knew the man in 2007 when he had just begun his career, it hit home hard!
DISguise got the call about the latest information which left him in a state of awe; he hung up the phone and headed to the studio to put together a track for the Yoruba Rap Icon. Just released today is the beat, we also decided to include that as a way for other grieving Nigerian and international artist who would want to show their support and probably make a record for the artist. You can forward your recorded tracks to firstname.lastname@example.org
May the CEO rest in perfect Peace, he shall not be forgotten.
I AM DAGRIN AND YOU ARE DAGRIN TO.

My facebook My Myspace - D.I.Sguise by coderedent
D.I.S GUISE is a young film maker, with background experience in music production
and graphic design, he committed to music at a young age after watching then hip
hop teenage acts such as Kriss Kross, Kid and play. D.I.S was born in west
Africa, hence the African tropical sounds influence his songs, he was inspired to
make music in the likes of Kidjo, Fela Anikulapo kuti, vyonne shaka shaka, Brenda
fasse, and others mixed with hip hop and contemporary music.
As an adolescent, D.I.S GUISE was fascinated with the idea of disguises and how
they could transform a person from one to another, he believed that everybody had
at least 2 disguises to their everyday life, one wore for social acceptance and
the other worn when we are being our true natural selves. D.I.S has chosen to
wear both disguises and talk about issue that would not be brought up in the
modern music society. D.I.S’s mask represents the facelessness of the everyday
person he has chosen to stand for. “There are millions of people out there that
have stories to tell but don’t have that pitchman, or voice to tell it to the
world” he said, when asked what he does music for. GUISE knows that music is
suppose to be a medium to express feeling about life, and since modern artist
only seem to see the “bling bling” side of life, he has made it mandatory to
address the young girl who wrongfully got rape, the government’s plot to control
citizens, the single mother struggling to raise 4 kids, the immigrant fighting
for his rights as a human being, the lover boy who got betrayed by his partner
and the list goes on.
D.I.S GUISE’s mixtape “I USED TO THINK I WAS LIKE YOU” which would be released
under his new record label CODE RED ENT, addresses the society’s idea of normal
and abnormal. This mixtape explores the person society wants us to be as opposed
to who we really are, we watch TV and try to incorporate things we see into our
lives because that’s what is considered “COOL”, and if otherwise is done the
individual involved is not regarded as an active part of society, hence they do
not matter, in this social commentary mixtape guise challenges minds and makes it
sooth the ears.

The Beef between this two is getting heated now. Yesterday Nov 11 IceBerg Slim dropped a reply track at notjustok.com to M.I's "Somebody Wants to Die" track which was released last month in response to IceBerg question "Am I Better Than M.I?". According to rapper IceBerg aka Mr International this has been a question directed at him from the fans of both camps. This new track from IceBerg directly calls out M.I where he also calls him a "faggot".
Both tracks are down below for your listening pleasure.
