Mozzy Rings in CMG announcement with Roddy Ricch collab ‘Real Ones’

On Friday (Feb. 11), Mozzy dropped off a brand new single with Roddy Ricch to accompany his surprise announcement of a new partnership with Yo Gotti’s emerging powerhouse label, CMG.

CMG’s — “Collective” or “Cocaine Music Group” (depending on who you ask) — latest single brings together two of the most compelling artists out of California in recent history for a tightly orchestrated tribute to loved ones lost, locked up, and still looking for a way out. Roddy’s melodic vocal on the hook perfectly contrasts Mozzy’s gritty and uniquely soulful delivery to create a dynamically engaging, unmistakable West Coast collab.

This music video for “Real Ones” is yet another fire visual from Blank Square Productions — channeling classic music videos with grainy flashbacks, childhood reenactments and rose pedal beds. Mozzy and Roddy also pour one out for their fallen friends — joined by Mozzy’s right hand man, Celly Ru.

During an unprecedented press conference held by CMG Thursday, Yo Gotti announced that Mozzy would be joining the emerging powerhouse label — adding yet another stone to CMG’s infinity gauntlet. Highlighting uniquely authentic, street-oriented artists from underappreciated cities around the country, CMG is becoming a movement for all sectors of hip-hop The Sacramento native joins Gotti’s insanely dominant roster including EST Gee, 42 Dugg, Moneybagg Yo, BlocBoy JB, Blac Youngsta and more — representing Louisville, Detroit, and Gotti’s hometown of Memphis.

While there probably weren’t too many who predicted this move, the unapologetically raw “people’s champ” couldn’t be a better fit for the brand of CMG. Mozzy has operated as largely independently under Empire, so it will be exciting to see what he does with the backing of one of the undisputed new powerhouses in hip-hop.

2022 is already shaping up to be a big year for one of Cali’s most prolific independent acts and CMG’s newest addition — with “Real Ones” serving as an advance preview for Mozzy’s new project Survivors Guilt, set to drop sometime in the next few months.
