Mozzy Protests the Mumble Rap Movement On “Dear XXL”

Sacramento’s Mozzy is feeling a certain way about XXL’s picks for their 2016 Freshmen list — a line up which included Kodak Black, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, Desiigner and more.

The 29-year-old Bay Area rapper, who just appeared in Clyde Carson’s tropical hyphy anthem “Bring All Your Friends” has a few choice words for the rap publication, mumble rappers and the millennial generation’s overthrow of Hip-Hop (depending on who you ask) — an annoying, unscratchable itch which has apparently been brewing in his mind for quite some time.

On the short-but-sweet “Dear XXL,” Mozzy spits scathing lines like:

I see depression when I look in the mirror // Look at your magazine and all the freshmens is queers // Cipher was dry as f*ck, that ain’t something you air // And the politics make it unfair // Supposed to have been on that cover // Look at all the trash get on that cover // Half these n*ggas sucking d*ck undercover.

Listen to the track below and vote for Mozzy for this year’s XXL Freshmen list.
