The Video:
Dallas rapper Mo3 was a singular talent who dazzled listeners with his soulful vocals and technical skill. Today, his estate shares the video for “AR” ft. BigXThaPlug & That Mexican OT, a highlight track from Mo3’s recently released posthumous album Legend. “AR” is Texas to the core, featuring rising rappers from Dallas and Houston to pay tribute to the late legend. BigXThaPlug, Mo’s fellow Dallas native, unfurls his basso-voiced triplets to salute the OG, while Bay City’s That Mexican OT rolls his r’s as he calls Mo3 the “King of Texas.” Despite the compelling performance by the youngsters, Mo3 remains the star of the show, delivering a sticky hook with soulful melodies and machine-gun rhymes. In the “AR” video, directed by Prophecy, BigX and OT link up in Dallas, pulling up to one of their favorite restaurants, riding dirtbikes, and bumping music in vintage cars. The video honors Mo3’s legacy in a celebratory way, including clips of him performing, ‘LL3’ chains, and more.

“AR” appears on Mo3’s recent posthumous album Legend, released last month via H$M Music / EMPIRE. Legend is the proper follow-up to Shottaz 4Eva (Deluxe), the 2021 posthumous album by Mo3. Peaking at #36 on the Billboard 200, the Shottaz 4eva album was a loving tribute to the rapper by those who loved him, welcoming guest appearances from Morray, Derez De’Shon, Foogiano, and Mo’s friend and longtime collaborator Boosie Badazz. Shottaz 4Eva (Deluxe) is home to “Outside (Better Days)” ft. OG Bobby Billions, a heartbreaking account of street life that has become one of Mo3’s most popular songs. The song spent multiple weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, racked up over 176 million YouTube views on its video (dedicated to Mo’s memory), generated over 59 million Spotify streams, and earned a spot on Barack Obama’s list of favorite songs of 2021.

Though Mo3 is no longer with us, his legacy continues to inspire a new wave of melodic rap. The artist animated the streets in Texas and beyond with songs like “Everybody,” which has over 100 million streams across platforms, and the Sam Cooke-sampling “Long Time Coming,” plus beloved albums like Osama and Badazz Mo3 (a collaboration with Boosie). The late artist’s family and team will continue to release music that he was able to record before his untimely passing. In the meantime, we honor Mo3 and his contributions to hip-hop: stand by for Legend.
