Known for his raw lyrics and passionately expressive singing, Mo3 gave a voice to those going through the struggle. Today, the rapper’s family and artist team begin the rollout of Shottaz 4 Eva, the first posthumous album to be released since Mo’s tragic passing in November 2020. Shottaz 4 Eva is the fourth entry in Mo’s Shottaz series of project, which helped him build a name for himself in Texas and beyond. The posthumous album–which features the artist’s singular combination of soulful crooning and athletic rhymes–follows up 2020’s Badazz Mo3, a full-length collaboration with Boosie Badazz, and is the sequel to Mo’s breakout 2018 tape Shottaz 3.0, home to his signature hit “Everybody.“
Along with the announcement of the project, Mo3’s team shares “Outside,” a heart-wrenching video that pays tribute to the late rapper. Featuring an appearance from fellow Dallas rapper OG Bobby Billions, “Outside” is a poignant examination of the cycle of violence that haunts neighborhoods like Mo3’s. Adorned with emotional saxophones and rippling piano, the song is a potent demonstration of Mo’s singular vocal talent, the passion dripping out of his voice as he prays for an end to the pain suffered by himself and his community. Directed by Prophecy, the video for “Outside” is a moving tribute to the late rapper that doesn’t sugarcoat the violence that takes away far too many lives. The video combines images of mourners at Mo3’s funeral with archival clips of the rapper during happier times, proving that the community to which he dedicated his life appreciated him and loved him back.
Though Mo3 is no longer with us, his legacy lives on in everybody who’s been moved by his music. The late artist’s family and team will continue to release music that he was able to record before his untimely passing. Shottaz 4 Eva is available for pre-order starting April 2nd via H$M Music/EMPIRE.
