Mozzy Shows the Many Ills of Society in ‘The People Plan’ [WATCH]
Sacramento rapper Mozzy just released a video for the song "The People Plan," off his latest album Fake Famous, which dropped a few weeks ago.
The clip finds the talented rapper delivering thought-provoking lyrics in front of a TV screen that shows pictures of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Eric Garner and others. The director also shows quick shots of Donald Trump, Martin Luther King, some examples of police brutality and black-on-black crime.
Lyrically, Mozzy's instantly grabs your attention, and his unique brand of storytelling sucks you right in and doesn't let you go.
"Let my momma down when she needed a helping hand / I made sure that I was straight, though, as selfish as I am ... Mama couldn't save you from the judge they the Klan," he spits.
While speaking to Fader, the 29-year-old said he had no idea that people would like this song so much, because he was just expressing himself.
"The song was created naturally, but it was on a different beat," he explained. "Dave-O produced it. It was effortless, and I wasn't expecting it to become what it is. I was just speaking. I was just talking to my people."
Mozzy also said that at first he wasn't feeling the new beat for the cut.
"The beat prior to that was more ra-ra-, more activated, more turnt up to me," he said. "So I wasn't really feeling the new sound. It sounded slowed down and more sad than how it originally sounded, and I wasn't feeling it."
