Dominican-born, now Brooklyn-based, young rapper Mozart Rick has his eye on domination in 2017. After catching some early buzz due to collaborations with artists like Juelz Santana, Uno The Activist, and Castro Guapo, Mozart inked a label deal with SixtyFive Entertainment / Asylum (Warner Music Group) and has today dropped the official video for his track “Window”, which has garnered almost 1-million spins on Soundcloud. The track is also available today on all digital platforms including Spotify and iTunes. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
Mozart Rick’s story is a classic tale of New York City: He moved from the Dominican Republic when he was nine, settling in the Bronx amidst extended family. He didn’t speak English at the time, and wasn’t too excited about learning a whole new language. Music was there, however, to help bridge the gap—Rick’s interest in rap began soon after moving to the States, when he was just 10 years old. Fast forward to 2016, and Rick’s raps have him poised to break into the upper echelons of the music industry. “If it wasn’t for New York,” he says, “I’m not sure I would’ve ever been determined to pursue a career in music.”
Not that he’s forgotten his roots—Mozart Rick’s music blends English and Spanish seamlessly, a nod to his families in the DR and the Bronx. “I want to be an artist that inspires people through my music,” Rick says. “I want to feel the adrenaline when I go on stage and put on a good show for my fans.”
That’s certainly the case for his single, “Window.” It’s the kind of hard-hitting track that sounds due to ring out in clubs across the country. Rick’s hook is especially addictive, an example of a new style of sound: “Nobody’s making that disco-trap like me,” Rick says. And the fans have responded—”Window” always draws a big reaction from Rick’s crowds, which is an essential part of his style as an artist. “You get to interact with your fans on stage and see your fans reactions,” he said. “As an artist you make music for people so you want to see how they react.”
“Window” serves as an introduction to Rick’s album due to drop in early 2017. The project was recorded in NYC, the perfect city to reflect Rick’s high-energy, spontaneous songwriting tactics. “I just start with a melody, then I freestyle,” he says. “Every song you’ve heard from me is a freestyle.”
