"Can't forget Cabasa, Same way I can't forget Ajasa, Never would I misplace 2phat and Spaco. Jahbless & 7th Chord. Cant just forget d beginning.."--9ice
Its no news that 9ice has distanced himself from Coded Tunes (a crew he was repping at the start of his career) after break up with his baby mama, Toni Payne. 9ice started his music journey with ID cabasa (his long time friend) in the late 1990s and they formed the Coded Tune clique together. 9ice broke into the industry in 2000 with "Little Money" produced by Cabasa.
Cabasa opened up about 9ice departure from the coded tunes crew after his 3rd album in an interview. '...I don't know where me or him (9ice) got it wrong, but he (9ice) just stopped talking to everybody in the Coded Tunes family' he told Femi Salawu Of The Nation. Cabasa who said he never gained anything (financially) from 9ice before he left, also vowed not to work with 9ice again.
