Defsounds Unsigned Artist Spotlight (July 2011): MOUFY
Raised in the Orchard Park neighborhood of Roxbury, Moufy is the rapper to watch coming out of Boston. At the age of 19, Moufy already has the most downloaded mixtape ever by an unsigned artist from the City of Boston and the most facebook fans of any rapper from the city. His accomplishments don’t stop there though, he has sold out a 250 person venue in Boston; had articles written about him in… The Boston Phoenix, BarstoolSports.com, ThisSongIsSick.com, GoodMusicAllday.com, FreshNewTracks.com and BroBible.com; and he has shared the stage with the likes of KRS-One, Machine Gun Kelly and Hoodie Allen.
If you don’t believe the hype just listen to what critics are saying:
“He could become a big deal real quick” (GoodMusicAllDay.com),
“He’s got a real unique flow and a voice unlike any rapper I’ve ever heard” (ThisSongIsSick.com),
“[He’s] the next big artist coming out of Boston” (DirtyMexicanLemonade.com),
“One of the dopest unsigned artists in the game” (StagsFlow.com),
From modest beginnings, Moufy was born to a teen-aged mother from the Dominican Republic and a father who drifted in and out of his life. His vast experiences growing up in Roxbury and going to private high schools have shaped him into who he is now and help him to bridge the gap between urban and suburban America.
