Mo Moshiri

Mo Moshiri is an MC, songwriter, and producer. He is perhaps best known as one of the founders of the legendary west coast hip-hop group Sweatshop Union. Together they recorded several albums, performed hundreds of shows, earned Juno nods and WCMA wins, and helped pave the path for the new generation of artists making waves on the coast and beyond.

After a healthy hiatus, Mo is back from deep space and feeling rejuvenated. He wants to talk to YOU about everything! Or maybe just vibe. A deft lyricist whose flow and beats pay hommage to classic hip-hop sounds, as he explores the lyrical ether in a way few other MCs dare to tread. Full of big ideas and deep wells of thought and feeling, you know Mo Moshiri is going to take you on a journey when he's on the mic.

His latest full album Can I Tell You Something? is a potent blend of true-skool hip-hop and global bass music with intelligent and passionate rhymes, and melodies that stay with you. A majority of the production on the album is handled by long-time friends Mo and Rob the Viking, who have been working together since they were both in their teens. In fact, it was Rob who showed Mo how to make beats 20 years ago! Working together again was a very natural and powerful combination for the duo, resulting in Moshiri's most textured and layered offering to date.

Like any great adherent to the tenets of hip-hop, Moshiri can thrive on his own with a just a mic and a beat or in the midst of a group, trading energy with the other people in the room – always working to build musical community based in Love and Rap.
