Richmond, Va is known for its high murder rate, ranking from number 12 to number five in the country, depending on the season. Moochieee learned early on through his travels from his mother’s home on the Westside to his father’s on the Southside that you either learn to adapt to the life or quickly fail to exist in his city. When his family fell on hard times, Moochieee didn’t hesitate at stepping up to provide for them by any means necessary. Although he admits not all choices were the best. The results of some of those choices did lead to Moochieee’s current journey in the music industry.
Moochieee never really wanted to be in the spotlight, he found himself creating a fan base by reciting his lyrics around his peers. “When I first started to rap, I remember my friend Chicago telling me, that he could relate to each and every word he heard, like I was telling his story.” recalls Moochieee. As months passed he was made aware that Chicago wasn’t the only one who felt that way about his music.Moochieee became focused on making a name for himself within the music industry so he could make a way for the rest of his Richmond peers to be able to make a name for themselves as well.
In October of 2016 and in February of 2017 Moochieee released his first and second singles God Damn and Desolation. Speaking nothing but facts of his own experiences in his hometown, his supporters felt his story. Not only did he earn more of their respect and love, they started to make sure he was being heard. After honing in on his craft through writing more and featuring on a few tracks here and there. The demand for Moochieee to release more music was being heard loud and clear.
In May 2017, ( his longtime friend) Ghost became Moochieee’s manager and together they gave birth to D.O.A Ent. While putting his final touches on his mixtape Chapo 4 President ,Moochieee was given the chance to be the opening act a long side his friend Lil So for Ralo in Richmond, Va. While his name was creating attention, Moochieee decided to released his single Larry Bird late June and as he expected it was received with open arms.The love and support he received from his supporters inspired him to work even harder on his next project. Chapo 4 President was finally released later on in December of 2017.
Moochieee delivered once again, on February 26th, surprising everyone with his single Noriega. As the clubs and colleges went into a frenzy keeping his song on repeat. Moochieee surprised everyone again a week later releasing his video for his new single on Youtube. Within the first few days Noriega hit over 1,000 views. Proving to any doubters that were still in the shadows, that Moochieee was and is a force to be reckoned with.
While performing at multiple venues which included Averett University and Randolph Macon College the demand for Noriega was spreading fast. His next performance was held in Brooklyn, Ny, a long side his fellow Richmond native Reppa Ton, (this event was sold out within the first two weeks). Moochieee, still buzzing off of the energy from the love he received in Brooklyn, was welcomed home with a very humbling gift. Noriega had been officially put in rotation on Iheartradio. Giving full access to his supporters world wide to have Noriega as a permanent fixture in their playlist.
After careful consideration between the various labels trying to recruit Moochieee, his choice to sign with Empire Records, as his platform to distribute his music, was made official on May 23rd.
