Rising Dallas Rapper Mo3 Announces Osama Project, Releasing December 13th via EMPIRE
The EMPIRE Signee Brings His Latest Single to Life With a Romantic, San Francisco-Set Video for “Ride For Me”
Delivering athletic rhymes and yawning melodies in an indelibly Southern style, Dallas rapper Mo3 commands a loyal cult following in Texas and beyond. Raising his game to a new level, Mo3 announces Osama, his upcoming mixtape. With appearances from Boosie Badazz and Jazze Pha, the project releases on December 13th via EMPIRE.
To accompany the announcement of the mixtape, Mo3 shares “Ride For Me,“ his new music video. Released earlier this month in audio form, and already gaining traction on local radio, “Ride For Me” is an ideal illustration of 3’s appeal, alternating full-throated singing with half-sung rhymes and rapidfire bars. In the video, directed by Adrian Per, Mo3 travels to San Francisco to blissfully spend a romantic afternoon with his bae, posing by the Bay Bridge and riding his all-white Vette through the streets. “Ride For Me” is the latest in a line of successful video singles, including “That Ain’t It” (566k views) and “Too Much Pride“ (2.3 million views).
Born and raised in North Dallas, Mo3 burst onto his local scene in 2016 with the Shottas Reloaded mixtape, which earned him a write-up in the Dallas Observer. Over the past three years, 3 cultivated a massive fanbase in his hometown and beyond, growing his Instagram follower count to 484k, his YouTube subscribers to 427k, and his Spotify monthly listeners to 215k. He had his greatest success yet with Shottas 3.0, his 2018 mixtape, which featured his viral hit “Everybody,” which has over 6 million combined Spotify plays and over 70 million combined YouTube videos on the audio and the remix with Boosie Badazz. Mo3 plans to take his artistry and his popularity to a new level with his upcoming mixtape, set to release in the coming months via H$M/EMPIRE.
