Multi-talented act Dozenz comes in with a brand new bag on his upbeat record titled “Thug for you”. The track is about trying to maintain and losing the fight to the internal thug we all work every day to keep chained up and shows Dozenz fusing different rap styles to make a statement. He draws inspiration from Wu-tang clan, some 90s gangsta rap and musical elements from Jay-Z and Rihanna (the hat pattern is inspired by both 99-Problems and Umbrella). It’s quite upbeat, bouncy and well crafted. Hit the play button and get familiar.

Mobi Mawla is a 21 year old hip hop artist raised in Toronto who is focused on creating powerful content driven rap music. While working to develop a unique and original sound that stays true to the genre and himself, Mobi has gearing up to release his debut EP project titled “Freedom”. The music is relate-able and draws from his experiences while living in Florida.
Following the release of his music video in December 2017 for “H.Y.P.”, “No Hand Outs” sets the tone for what to expect coming next. Linking up with platinum selling producer FrancisGotHeat (Roy Wood$, Drake, Big Sean, Bryson Tiller, Eminem), “No Hand Outs” is meant to be the anthem for any independent individual who has worked overtime, has yet to reap the benefits, but does not let that stop them in continuing to pursue their dream. Mobi and Francis are childhood friends and met at 15 years of age when they both decided to get into music. This is the return of them working together on their most meaningful song yet.
Be on the look out for more new music and visuals from Mobi coming soon as he gets closer to the release of his new EP. The project plays out as a story about Mobi’s transition from living in Florida to moving into Toronto yet still desiring the American dream.
In celebration of “who knows how the hell this happened?” check out Kosha dillz’s remix of Portugal the Man’s big hit Feel it Still, entitled Feel it Dillz. The Theme of the song is quite interesting as Dillz states in the intro. “The song is about The girl you’re going for she’s with someone else and you gotta play it smooth and still pull it off ..tight.” Of course, that person is really important and you don’t wanna be the douche in the situation.
He rhymes the rockstar scenario that is happening in all sizes of crowds, but specifically for those smaller shows he is used to playing. “Maybe that dude is a friend, a friend that wishes he was more, damnit he is the plug you know that is par for the course. you know how that go, just act natural, but she’s looking at me like an animal.“
