Mozzy’s Lyrical Realism Shine On Powerhouse’s Second Stage Thoughts+Photos: MOZZY @ Powerhouse 2018
SAN BERNARDINO, CA-
“… If you follow California Hip Hop, then you have heard of the name Mozzy before. And even if do not follow California Hip Hop, you may of heard of the name Mozzy after Kendrick Lamar mentioned Mozzy by name while accepting the award for Best Hip Hop Album at the 60th Grammy Awards.
Mozzy is a MC based out of Sacramento who has already built up an extensive catalog of music. Mozzy might very well be the most active rapper in the game with the pace he was putting out music; and that is definitely a good thing if you love Hip Hop.
Mozzy credits his lyricism and music to California legend, Tupac, and with a mentor like that, one can only anticipate the music that an artist like Mozzy could make. Mozzy appeared on Stage 2, flashed a wide smile, and immediately ripped through a set of his hits. As a humble MC, you could tell that Mozzy was grateful for the opportunity to perform in front of Power House 2018.
Do not let Mozzy’s reality based lyrics that reference gang banging and drug dealing deceive you into thinking that Mozzy is just another gangsta rapper. That would be a complete disservice to the path that Mozzy is on. His lyrics contain that realism that is often missing from Hip Hop. Here’s hoping that Mozzy keeps his pace of producing quality music, I for one would like to see Mozzy perform again…”
