Modenine the Polymaf experimented with his last album “Above Ground Level”. He left his comfort zone (Boom Bap) to try out more radio/club-tailored single like “Some More” that featured Don Jazzy. Fast forward to 2016 Modenine serves up the insulin to figuratively reduce the sugarcane hits in the rap scene i.e the dominance of bubblegum rap. Insulin sees Modenine return to his comfort zone. The 21-track long LP is straight Hip-Hop, vintage Mode is on display.
The album opener is the title track – “Insulin”, it samples a child’s voice proclaiming Modenine as the best rapper and a dope MC followed by a Legendary DJ Jimmy Jatt intro then Modenine dives in with punchy bars –“hey think they got me with my back to the floor/ but its a guard position, and you ain’t ready for war” . These bars set the tone for the album, Mode is out for war with critics and haters alike. The track closes with DJ Jimmy Jatt declaring Modenine as the truth.
