Moe Green has been keeping busy the past few months, slaving away at FEDEX and in the studio perfecting his upcoming EP Lionheart, the follow-up to his debut album, Rocky Maivia: Non-Title Match, which was released this past summer, winning Moe accolades with outlets including XXL Magazine, Red Bull’s ChinaShopMag.com, and more. While fans eagerly await the new EP, Moe is holding them over with a few tasty visuals. First up is a brand spanking new video for “Cruise Control,” a previous single from Rocky Maivia. Directed by J. Sutherland, the video features Moe Green cruising (in his actual car, it might be noted) through the scenic Golden State streets with a smooth beat, complete with synths and kick- and snare-heavy beat, as a fitting accomplice to Moe’s wordplay, as he raps, “This is just the beginning of relaxin’, sir/ Been paying plenty dues, its my tax return.”

The rap game is overflowing with aspiring new MCs, all crammed into a single ring fighting for that lone heavyweight title. One particular competitor who has fully dedicated himself to the good fight is 22-year old Moe Green from Vallejo, California. His forthcoming debut album, Rocky Maivia: Non Title Match, is titled after Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s first professional ring name and perfectly embodies Moe place in today’s hip-hop circuit – the newcomer who is one day going to hold the championship belt. Like any fighter, years of training, dedication, and discipline are required to claim the top spot. Moe has been training for this his entire life. Having competed in speech and poetry meets growing up, Moe found himself genuinely attracted to the creative freedom music imparts early in his life, even writing rhymes in kindergarten with his childhood best friend and E-40’s son, Droop-E. Listeners of Rocky Maiva can expect to hear tales from a young man from a hard hit city trying to find his way in the world the best he can. On growing from Rocky Maivia to one day standing amongst the greats, Moe says, “I need to win a couple belts first. I have to prove that I have the skill to do that and this album is like my wrestling debut.” And so, the journey begins.
