After his 2016 effort A Very Emotional EP allotted millions of streams and certified his status as a genuine force within hip-hop, Mind Of A Genius VP Azad is back with a fresh single that takes his sound to new heights. Titled “Mottola,” it’s a wavy joint with a thunderous low-end for Azad to spit serious bars atop (“Fuck a major, I go sign myself, blow up your favorite artist then I’ll co-sign myself”). The track comes equipped with a dynamic music video whose visuals are constantly shifting into psychedelic territory.
On how the track came about, Azad explains “This is my favorite track from my favorite band (THEY.) of 2017. I named the freestyle MOTTOLA because I studied Tommy (and Jimmy Iovine, Dame Dash) like I studied my favorite musicians.” As for its accompanying visuals, he notes “We went on a Europe trip this Summer and shot videos for my entire upcoming project. This one was done in Amsterdam."
