Mozzy – Overcame (Official Video)

Authenticity is like pornography—you know it when you see it. Or hear it, in the case of Mozzy, who makes music about his life growing up on the streets of Sacramento’s challenging Oak Park neighborhood. Over the last few years, he’s emerged as one of hip hop’s most essential storytellers. He raps with unmistakable patina of truth about the grinding realities of drugs, gangs and violence. Mozzy’s father was a felon and his mother was absent; he was raised by aunts and his grandmother, a member of the Black Panther Party. Mozzy grew up with an intimate understanding of the drug trade, both the luxurious lifestyle it can provide and the drastic risks it carries. When he started rapping, he was determined to present street narratives with the nuance they deserve. Mozzy first acquired national attention in 2015, when he released a series of full-lengths including Yellow Tape Activities and Bladadah. He caught the eye of a number of national outlets with his compelling blend of richly detailed narratives and hard-hitting production infused with lush NorCal funk. Mozzy’s recent features include “Seasons” (with Sjava and Reason) on the Grammy-winning Black Panther movie soundtrack and “Too Brazy” on YG’s Stay Dangerous album. In 2018, he released a solo album Gangland Landlord to critical acclaim; The Atlantic highlighted the project and Mozzy’s career with an in depth profile. The album was also included in The Atlantic’s “23 Best Albums of 2018″ and LA Weekly’s “Best West Coast Hip-Hop Albums of 2018.” Mozzy released his latest mixtape, Internal Affairs, in May 2019, which Noisey included in their coveted “100 Best Albums of 2019” list.FOLLOW MOZZY
