Mozzy sat down with Rap Radar to speak on his recently released Gangland Landlord. The 18-track album released on Oct. 5 and in true Mozzy fashion, the project explicitly highlights the Sacramento rapper’s highs and lows of being involved with gang life.
“You either victimize or become a victim, you feel me? So you know, that was an easy decision,” he said of his past.
When asked how he felt about gang culture growing in rap, he said he loves it. Well, the “real ones,” saluting rappers Nipsey Hussle, Maxo Kream and Sauce Walka. He later said he doesn’t expect real rap gangstas to only talk about gang life, referencing the quote: “All the gangstas is trying to get out, and all the goofies is trying to get in.”
Mozzy opened up, revealing the painful moments of his life, such as having to give his fallen friends’ mothers good-bye kisses for them. He said the pain never truly goes away and making music is therapy for him.
Mozzy spoke on his respect for other rappers such as Kendrick Lamar, YG and YBN Nahmir as well. With his well-watered relationships in hip-hop, it’s no surprise that his album featured artists such as Yo Gotti, Too $hort, YFN Lucci, ScHoolboy Q, Ty Dolla $ign and more.
The rapper was asked if there were any artists that he wished he could’ve featured on the album but didn’t, and he did reveal that he wanted Nipsey Hussle to grace the project.
