Heartbreak is inevitable.
We’ve all been there, the cycle of growing immense feelings for someone, just to have it not work out in the end.
There are many causes for break-ups. Maybe you and your partner don’t see eye-to-eye, or it could be because of lack of time spent together, communication…you get the gist. Nevertheless, the emotions that come with a terrible split seem almost impossible to get over. Luckily, Mosa provides the tools for individuals to level up and move on. Moreso, his album Heartbreak University finds him getting straight to the point about what he wants from a partner, what he won’t tolerate, and how certain situations made him feel.
His lyrics also take a trip down memory lane as he details former relationships. In the same sense, Mosa tells-all about new lovers that he wants to pursue. Sonically, the album dives into the lush tones of hip-hop and R&B.
From a vocal standpoint, Mosa showcases his top-tier versatility, crossing between ethereal-like singing and direct rhymes. One track that stands out the most is “Mad Friendly.”
Produced by Cedes, “Mad Friendly” finds the emerging artist unbothered about what a hater has to say. Instead, Mosa is doing his part in becoming the next chart-topping rapper. And his success speaks for itself.
“I done heard it all before, it don’t offend me/Mosa baby got a temper don’t tempt me/I’m in the South when I came out from the East,” he delivers. “Mr. Roger ran my sh*t back three times.”
As the song continues, he calls out the phonies who are only around because he’s prosperous. He also shouts out his team, showing that loyalty goes a long way. Before closing the record, he leaves a subtle flex about his gift of gab.
“DJ Bino told me ‘Mosa you the n*gga right now’/I done freestyled every track I think it’s time to write now/Every girl that ever left, probably to my right now.”
The song overall is slightly akin to Drake‘s musical styling, from the beat choice to cadence. Mosa adds his own twist by carrying his wordplay with a swagger.
Mosa has been making a name for himself, having caught the attention of the legendary Jas Prince – who discovered Drake – for his strong suit of R&B and hip-hop.
Prince flew him out to Houston and has invested in his career since, signing him to his Young Empire Music Group and setting him up to work with Mike Dean on Heartbreak University.
