Mozzy and Philthy Rich Beef
I can not tell you how many times a day my playlist plays Prezi “Do Better Remix” featuring Philthy Rich, Mozzy and OMB Peezy. This song has to be one of my favorite songs and for good reason, the collaboration of artists is spot on. It was surprising to me to find out that Philthy Rich and Mozzy had beef. I remember the moment I first heard each one for the first time. I was on a video shoot with Philthy Rich in 2010 for the song “Let The Money Talk” which was shot in Denver with artists Young Doe, Innastate Ike and Freeway Ricky. The first time I heard Filthy Rich I was actually watching him spit lyrics onset in Park Hill. The first time I heard Mozzy was three years ago with “Beautiful Struggle” which I instantly fell in love with. His off the hook lyrics and witty verses had me hooked right away and I have been a fan of almost every song since.
The beef between the two artist has fans all over social media and as I scrolled through Facebook today I noticed so many people debating between the two artists. Oddly enough I had a hard time finding anyone who did not choose a side while also sending a respect shot out to the other artist. As I went through the comments on my friend Rocca Solo’s page I realized how many posts said they like both artists. I feel like if you are a Mozzy fan you are most likely also a Philthy Rich fan and vise versa.
The debate came about after Mozzy signed Philthy Rich’s rival enemy Messy Marv. Philthy took to the mic recording his single to Mozzy entitled “Don’t Forget” where he expresses he was the man who put Mozzy on and how he feels stabbed in the back. I feel like Philthy’s single is one of the most clear and mature dis-tracks I have ever heard. He clearly states his issues direct and to the point. Mozzy took no time responding with his track ” Chill Phillpe” which I could not help but giggle at the funny title. This dis was impossible for me to not rock my head to. His beat and lyrics are fire. Its clear to see on both tracks how talent both artists are and the feud has fans upset as most fans are true fans of both artists. Hopefully the beef can end and the artists can “Do Better” again.
