Mozzy Shares Tracklist For Children Of The Slums, His New Album, Out This Friday, April 19th, via CMG/Interscope

Critical Praise:
“He never needs to raise his voice or act out just to grab your attention; his delivery is assured and consistent but never overconfident. But despite how second nature rapping is for Mozzy, he never lets that confidence tilt into arrogance.” – Pitchfork

“Mozzy is the definition of a rapper in the zone, with a signal-to-noise ratio that rivals anyone else working in hip-hop today.” – Complex

“Chalk it up as a victory for Sacramento’s lyrical champion.” – HipHopDX

Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest West Coast Rap Songs of All Time (#68, “Bladadah”)
The Announcement:
Mozzy earned his reputation as one of the most authentic rappers in the game today by staying dedicated to his home neighborhood of Oak Park in Sacramento. Today, the veteran artist announces the tracklist of Children Of The Slums, his next album, which is dedicated to his home neighborhood’s lost souls, and those who have lost loved ones to the streets via drugs or violence. The new album features a standout guest spot from Fridayy, who lends his otherworldly vocals to highlight track “LOST IT ALL,” as well as spots from Mozzy’s longtime collaborators Celly Ru and E Mozzy. Home to lead single “JADED” ft. Eric Bellinger, plus other previously-released fan favorites like “IF I DIE RIGHT NOW” (4 million views on YouTube), a heartfelt tribute to Mozzy’s latest grandmother, “MISS BIG BRUH,” and “FREE JUJU,” Children Of The Slums drops on all platforms on Friday April 19th via CMG/Interscope.

“Nobody born in the slums has a choice,” says Mozzy. “Born into those kinds of circumstances, it’s hard to imagine a way to get out. They don’t have anyone to look out for them or to show them a better way. I’m still looking out for all the children of the slums. I am there for them because I know if the situation was flipped, they would do the same for me.”

Children of the Slums arrives after a busy 2023 for the respected rapper. In the Fall, Mozzy released a series of high quality visuals for songs like the heartfelt “If I Die Right Now” and the retributive “Free Juju.” Before Mozzy finished up a one-year bid in May, he released KOLLECT KALL, a 6-track EP featuring appearances from YFN Lucci, Baby Money, and his Sacramento associates E Mozzy and Celly Ru, and home to the acclaimed single “FREE ALL THE LIFERS.” KOLLECT KALL earned coverage in Pitchfork, Rap Radar, HotNewHipHop,& Okayplayer, and more. The neighborhood hero linked up with a like-minded veteran when he appeared on Killer Mike’s GRAMMY Award-winning album MICHAEL, and he kept the streets hot with singles like the flex-heavy “10 Percent” (8.8 million views).

Mozzy’s next album continues his run as one of the most acclaimed and popular street rappers of his generation. He has earned two GOLD certifications from the RIAA as a lead artist–”Excuse Me” and “Sleep Walkin–and three more on his collaborations with Skylar Grey, Likybo, and $tupid Young. Mozzy earned mainstream recognition in 2018, when his song “Sleep Walkin” was featured in a pivotal scene in Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, and he earned a shout out from Kendrick Lamar in his Grammy Award acceptance speech. More recently, his street classic “Bladadah” placed #68 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Best West Coast Rap Songs of All Time.

Stay tuned for Children Of The Slums, one of Mozzy’s most personal projects to date, coming this Friday.
