I don’t think words can express how antsy I am as I await for MOB Music to release their very first project as a unit.
Yes, for the first time Bizz, Riggz, Madd and Sledge will release a mixtape comprised of the creative vision of all four artist.
Why will this tape be amazing?
Let’s start with Bizz…
Bizzoe’s a lyricist; hands down. His word play is amazing and he even manages to create an imagery of a sexual encounter using basketball as a metaphor on “Alley Oop”. Like seriously? He’s the type of rapper that you have to double back on and rewind to make sure you heard him correctly. You’ll do that a lot with this tape.
Next you have Riggz who always manages to get you thinking about life and the journey. Tracks like “Chosen” show you that he is working relentlessly to be sure that people know who MOB is. It also shows you that he is always thinking about life and the unknown. That is something that is always prevalent in his music.
Then you have rude ass Madd who is too smart for his own good. Hard is his style and he goes hard every time. You don’t even get two seconds into the tape before you hear this man coming at you demanding respect and clarifying his zero tolerance for bullish*t. He’s a genius and it shows with his verses easily.
Sledge is coming fresh off of the People’s Champ Vol. 2 release better than ever. He had a lot to do with the flow of the tape and was even called “the symphony manager” when it came to how “beautifully” the “Egos Interlude” was set up. While Sledge is known for getting on our favorite trappers beats, he hops on slow tracks like “Fly Away” and gives us something smooth.
The tape was produced by Von out of JoksClub who “put a blessing on this tape” that is set to be released next Monday, July 28.
As we lead up to the release, I have had the pleasure of speaking with each artist individually about this project and their journey through life, music and the road to the tape with a full documentary to be released this Friday.
Until then, change your avi to the MOB Mixtape Vol. 1 cover and check out the preview:
So, last month the MOB participated in a Columbus Cypher (I mean I guess you can call it that but I’m not going to go there again) and it was…interesting.
It amazes me how the city has not embraced this group of people but then again, I’m not surprised.
The music industry has been so congested with foolery over hot beats that it’s nearly impossible for the average person to really listen and understand music. All people hear is a beat and they’re like “aw yeah bro that sh*t crack for real!” Bro what? You seriously have Chief Keef and Trinidad James in your top 5 dawg? GTFOH!
But now I’m ranting…
The MOB guys were not able to perform their verses in its entirety so what better way to get those verses heard than to record it yourself, right?
The track features artists Sledge, Riggz, and Madd and they have come around this time with a “f*ck your feelings” mentality.
I told ya’ll that Words Unspoken was the first and last time Riggz was going to let you in on his feelings and personal life. He made himself vulnerable and he is not going to do it again. Riggz is pissed off and you can hear it on this track and upcoming music that has yet to be released.
We all know Madd has always been rude AF and that will never change. I highly doubt Madd will ever get intimate with us on the music unless his dreams of meeting Nicki finally come true…then again he may brag even more! Madd gives you a quick verse full of intricate lines that makes you pay attention. He has that kind of style that really forces you to pay attention or you’ll miss it.
Sledge gets on this track and continues to bring us that B. Sledge swagger that we all know and love. You can tell that he is becoming more comfortable with his flow and he really goes in on this track. He also mentions his love for ratchet girls but I mean….what’s new? He has the longest verse on this track and he goes on every line. I can already see that People Champ’s 2 is going to be craaaay with just the little amount of tracks I have heard.
These guys are non-stop and there’s another MOB takeover season on the rise. With Bizz releasing his second E.P. titled “Snow and Cold” set to drop January 5 and the rest of the guys in and out of the studio recently, it is only a matter of time.
