Mob-figgaz is the rap duo of brothers Mobg and Mobx which
was formed in Southerton in the year 2002, we grew up in a musical family which
we were exposed to music at a young age. The 1st record I owned was Michael
Jacksons Bad LP on vinyl said Mobx. Our mother was a collector of classic old
music in vinyls from The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Chicago, Ray Charles and
local Zim music from Biggie Tembo, Bhundu Boys, James Chimombe the list is endless.
Our older sister introduced us to Soul and Rnb. With so much exposure to Rnb we discovered hip-hop and we just fell in love with it. The freedom of expression, the hard lyrics, the style and culture just hypnotised us.
We are from the era of the West coast and East coast beef, the golden era of hip-hop. That influences the way we make our music, drawing inspiration from hip-hop legends like Tupac, B.I.G, Dr Dre, Wu-tang, DMX , JAYZ, Nas the list is endless. We believe that for you to be a rapper you have to be a fan of the culture 1st. Hip-hop has 5 elements that’s MCing, bboy,graffiti, fashion and DJing.
So besides being just rapper Mobg is a graphic Designer, co owner of MobEnt and H.N.I.C of Mob Ent.
On the other hand MobX is a producer and co owner of MobEnt. Since 2007 the year we started our label we have 14 projects out, we have made careers and we have had ups and downs but still we stand cause Only One Family Stays On Top Forever.
