Sacramento’s Gangland Landlord Mozzy talks nuanced street narratives with Lawrence Burney. Rent is due.
From the moment Mozzy started rapping, he sought to tell stories from the street with the nuance they deserve yet are rarely afforded. After bursting onto the national scene in 2015 with his Yellow Tape Activities and Bladadah records, the Sacramento MC has carved out a lane for himself as “a gangster with an emotional state of mind.” He’s always put on for his home city, but for his latest LP, Gangland Landlord, he’s recruited A-listers like Ty Dolla $ign, Blac Youngsta and the Game. On this week’s episode of True Laurels, Mozzy checks in with host Lawrence Burney to discuss Gangland Landlord, his Black Panther feature and what it’s like to carry the torch for Sacramento rap in the most commercially successful year of his career.
