California rapper’s authenticity shines through on new album.
As often as it may seem that Mozzy releases music, he manages to maintain quality rapping and subject matter consistently. Delivering impressive song ideas with each new drop, he proved his talent once more on his new album, Untreated Trauma.
Untreated Trauma includes 10 songs that last just under 30 minutes — including a feature cast of several rising and underrated acts such as breakout Kentucky rapper EST Gee and West coast up-and-comer Kalan.FrFr.
The album opens with its emotional, promotional single “Straight to 4th,” and from then on, brings a diverse mix of contemplative and energizing tracks.

Mozzy drops heartfelt single ‘Straight to 4th’ ahead of new album
Sacramento native Mozzy has continued to fortify his voice in the rap game over the past two years with a handful of eye-opening projects.
In 2020, his albums Beyond Bulletproof and Occupational Hazard demonstrated his undeniably strong pen game over West Coast style production, alongside captivating features like Polo G, Quando Rondo, G Herbo and fellow rising Californian Blxst.
Now, after releasing his stellar collaborative album Kommunity Service with YG in May, Mozzy is preparing to release his second project of 2021 titled Untreated Trauma on Sept. 17. In preparation for the album, he dropped the intro and lead single “Straight to 4th” Friday.
“Straight to 4th” sees Mozzy construct a contemplative, long-winded hook discussing his desire to set his children up with a good life and depending on his friends for advice and security. Over a subtle piano melody and rhythmic layered claps, Mozzy’s reflective lyricism lets his listeners know his heart is always in the right place.
