Although the name MoSS may not ring any bells by itself, you’ve probably come across his production– Ghostface Killah’s “Kilos,” Raekwon’s “Have Mercy” and Obie Trice’s full album Special Reserve, to name a few. The producer is stepping into the spotlight for the first time, with an upcoming full length album for his instrumentals and a few rap friends paired with them. To kick things off, we get “Started” featuring AZ, DJ Premier and Joe Budden, which is probably a hip-hop purist’s wet dream.

MoSS’ debut album is also slated to feature Joell Ortiz, Slum Village and Ill Bill. Fun fact: MoSS is from Toronto.

Check out the very musical record and let us know if you’re digging it.

Quotable Lyrics

Sacrifice winter with summer on the mind
Ain’t looking cause I don’t wanna, wonder what I find
My ears to the wall, shades off
I’m prepared for the fall
Little nigga if you scared get a dog

– Budden
