Lyricism, word play, and extended metaphors are all aspects of hip hop and the reason so many are fascinated and drawn to the genre. For the listeners, the bars and beats embrace their minds and hearts as they resonate with the stories being told. For the rappers, hip hop is a form of expression and an opportunity to spread their messages to the masses.
M.O.U.F., short for “Move Over U Finished”, fell in love with hip hop as he witnessed his older brother bless the DJ booth throughout his childhood. Growing up in The Bronx, NY, M.O.U.F was surrounded by the best of the best in regards to rap. Listening to Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, DJ Kid Capri, and DJ Doo Wop, invited him into the world of music eventually making it his home. At the age of 14, M.O.U.F. began freestyling and perfecting his craft. Soon after, his pen became a weapon of lethal force as he prepared to release original music.
