Top Shotta: Big Mo teams up with Jaegen for this new dancehall track about coming up

Toronto, ON – Earlier this week Dallas, Texas based artist Big Mo teamed up with Toronto producer Jaegen for this new summer dancehall track titled “Top Shotta.”

“Top Shotta” is the story of Mo’s come up, and how he’s gone from being at his lowest point as a struggle rapper to actually making waves (and money) through his craft. But with all his success, Mo has witnessed people jumping on his wave who didn’t want to f**k with him at all during his come up. He’s also starting to realize that fame and attention aren’t always a good thing: “Swear these rappers be imposters/ Say they living lavish but they mom pushing a Honda/ They pree me/ They wanna be me/ Thinking I’m ‘a grant them wishes like a genie/ Hell naw/ Aint no free clout from me, G.”

This track comes to us as the first new release from Big Mo since his Nessly-assisted “Lean & Hennessy” blew up the Internet six months ago. “Top Shotta” is a bit more of an aggressive look for Big Mo. It’s not as draped up and dripped out as “Lean & Hennessy”, and has more of a braggadocios, celebratory air to it.

It’s an anecdotal record delivered as a punch-to-the-face over Jaegen’s hard-hitting, bounce-heavy production: “I was down bad/ I was down bad/ Top shotta/ Now no more popping f**king tags.”
