15 July 2010 No Comment

(July 15, 2010 – Brooklyn, NY) With a series of single and video leaks, Vallejo, California emcee Moe Green, has been building a steady following and buzz for his new album, Rocky Maivia: Non-Title Match. As Moe Green and his label, Interdependent Media, take a bold step forward with the rapper’s first supported release, starting today fans can download the entire album free of charge on Green’s bandcamp page.

For Moe Green, the move is a simple matter of strategy. “Why would I make somebody pay for the new guy when they’re already getting their favorite rapper’s work for free,” says Moe as he cites recent material from Wiz Khalifa, Rick Ross, Curren$y, and others. While a wave of support is growing around the budding rapper, including recently being named to KMEL’s 2010 Bay Area Freshmen 10 class, Moe Green and Interdependent media look to continue to capitalize on the early buzz, giving listeners the chance to get their hands Moe’s music hassle free. The internet isn’t the only place that benefits from free music. If you are in the Bay Area you can pick up a free CD at selected stores while supplies last. In San Francisco, fans can grab the album from Amoeba, while in Berkeley and Moe’s hometown, Vallejo, supporters can find the album at Rasputins.

Nods of approval have been rolling in for the artist’s leaked tunes “Non-Title Match” and the scorching “Going In For The Kill”. The build-up to the album was also bolstered by the video for “Ride,” directed by Chris Kiker, giving viewers a tour around Vallejo. The album is replete with tracks that illustrate where the 22-year old Green is as an artist and a young man. “Emerald City” discusses the hardships of being a new artist, where skipping meals, and spending savings on recording time are the risks and realities of trying to make it. “Day Dreamer,” featuring songstress Raygen Fykes, offers more insight to Green’s life and dreams over a dusty drum loop, while the similarly forward-looing “Keep It Moving (KIM)” finds Moe highlighting the need for perseverance, focusing on the ultimate goal rather than being consumed with the inconsequential.

The album gains its name from superstar wrestler/actor The Rock – Rocky Maivia served as The Rock’s moniker when he first debuted in the ring. Green sees his debut album as the Rocky Maivia phase in his own career. “It’s a metaphor for the newcomer with great potential entering the professional leagues,” says Green. The album’s title may actually have more meaning right now as Moe Green finds himself already a budding star complete with fan and industry support. The album finds an artist utilizing little more than his dreams to make things happen as the fuel to create a dense and expertly produced set that can hold its own among releases from other members of hip-hop’s emerging talent.
