Mozzy sat down with the L.A. Leakers Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk to promote his upcoming album: Gangland Landlord. He spoke in detail about the artists that inspired him, getting out of prison, and his feature on the Black Panther soundtrack.
Mozzy has been ultimately inspired by DMX, Tupac, Master P, and his favorite rapper for years, Lil Wayne. He also told us about his fans comparing him to Tupac, and how at times the comparison feels disrespectful, but is also a great honor. His dream music collaborations include, but are not limited to, Future, Drake, and Kanye. Mozzy mentioned that he wants to “Make rap great again,” with a Kanye collab.
The Sacramento rapper said that his mind is focused on “bringing the old Mozzy back.” He mentioned during the interview that he experienced an influx of momentum after getting out of prison, and with Gangland Landlord he wants to bring back the Mozzy who was fresh out and hungry for success.
A pivotal moment in his career was being featured on the Black Panther soundtrack, and he said that it softened his image in a tremendous way. Mozzy also dropped some bars in an exclusive L.A. Leakers freestyle to Tyga’s “Taste,” check it out here.
