As a kid growing up in Oak Park, Mozzy has seen a lot of things that the average kid didn’t have to see. And as the anticipation for his “1Up Top Ahk” album begins to build, he decides to talk about all the hardships most kids growing up in impoverished neighborhoods had to deal with in his newest video for “Afraid”.
R&B crooner DCMBR backs him up on the topic, singing “Did it all with my wrist/I did it all by breaking down and weighing up and servin’ all who need a fix”. Throughout the Suj-directed video you can see Mozzy checking in on his family that’s dealing with poverty & drug addiction.
It’s tracks and videos like this that have gotten Mozzy recognition in the hip-hop industry, aside from his 2015 hit “Bladadah” and the amount of projects he’s released over the last two years. Surely we’ll hear more about his California lifestyle on 1 Up Top Ahk, which is finally scheduled to drop August 18. The 16-song album sees Mozzy solo on six tracks, while his features include YFN Lucci, Lil Durk, Dave East and Boosie.
1 Up Top Ahk is now available for pre-order on iTunes. Take a look at the tracklist below and the music video for his latest single, “Afraid,” above.
