Hip hop and rap artist and producer MobBeatz has roots in two continents as he’s reaching further and further. Born in Istanbul, he moved to New York at the age of 9 and built his life in the small town of Troy, in upstate New York, from where he is forging his way to develop his musical career.
MobBeatz‘s journey into the world of music began by joining the band in elementary school. His relationship with music has continued over time and has allowed him to experiment with different instruments and genres. He grew up listening to a lot of rock and metal and found a way to reflect this influence through his use of guitars when he began producing music, inspired by artists such as X, Peep, Juice and many others, during his first year of high school, when he discovered his most congenial mode of expression inside hip hop and rap.
Since then, MobBeatz has worked over the years to better define his style, thus developing that distinctive ability in musical production that last year earned him a couple of important charts placements.
As MobBeatz himself explains, he had felt pigeonholed as nothing more than “a beat maker” and so he decided to escape that tiny box and the backstage, and make his way to the actual scene and personal success.
With his debut single “Heaven Sent” he reached and exceeded 240,000 streams on Spotify alone, totaling more than 300,000 on all platforms worldwide, and has earned a loyal fan base, not only in New York but also in Turkey. After releasing three more singles, on December 31st MobBeatz came out with his first official project “Love Now, Cry Later“, an 8-track EP that has already received positive reviews and, at the moment of writing, has reached half a million streams globally in the first few weeks of 2020.
Completely self-produced, “Love Now, Cry Later” fully showcases MobBeatz’s inspiration and creativity, characterized by a moody vision that gives life to a musical journey where his vocal performance is embedded in the foreground. Organic and coherent throughout its development, MobBeatz’s EP is a multiform project that is rooted in hip hop and melodic rap, and that does not fail to offer exquisite drifts and contaminations that feel somehow reminiscent of pop and indie, but are without a doubt experimental.
Fluent, energizing, sometimes dreamlike, and at the same time capable of a transport full of feeling, “Love Now, Cry Later” is a formidable example of the creative uniqueness of this artist, articulated through 8 captivating songs. From the way they each sound MobBeatz‘s artistic depth transpires in full, transmitted in a cohesive and dense way through memorable melodic lines and themes focusing on feelings. It is something easily relatable and free from flights of fancy. You don’t need them, because everything works perfectly, from the beats to the rhymes, from the sound to the mix.
Having a clear vision of where he wants to go, MobBeatz is already projected forward, towards a future that will surely be prolific and in which he will grab and enthuse old and new fans. As he told us, MobBeatz has in store a lot for 2020, since he is already working on another LP, one that will be released before the summer and that will see him collaborating with four other artists, including Nessly and MakSauce.
But the news that MobBeatz has in store for this year does not end there. There is an international tour in the pipeline, scheduled to start in the summer of 2020. The program, which includes New York as an initial stop, will also bring him to perform in his home country of Turkey.
MobBeatz is already on track. He just has to go on.
