Orlando's Underground King Breaking Through

How this 'Outta There' rapper's taken advantage of a wild start to 2020

At Enigmatic, such a big part of our identity and who we are is the pride we take in pushing Orlando’s talented underground scene and boasting some of the finest in the 407 patiently waiting for their shot. Today, we’re excited to bring you one of the most prominent of this group in the Orlando native Moe. When you listen to Moe you can hear a modern twist mixed with a Southern influence on the late, great Biggie Smalls. Kevin Gates especially comes to mind when listening to Moe too. The classic, deep huffing and rugged styled voice has been kind of put off with the wave of singing rappers and mass autotune in the 2010s. With the exceptions of hard knock artists like Key Glock, G Herbo, Rick Ross and many others keeping it alive we’re confident that in due time the industry will be able to add an artist like Moe to this list too in the years to come.

His first track Money dating back to August of 2017 was a very solid start to something promising for the young talent’s career launch, of course not fully filling into his potential or voice at that time, but the track was raw and showcased the talent that was clearly there. Moe followed up his debut with the impressive release of No Regrets, his first full length project in 2018. Off this project, the track entitled Main Chick stole the show which currently sits at over 35K streams and counting today. The song has impressive lyricism and intricate bars with a chorus that booms “you could really be my main chick, the one I really wanna hang with,” with a real Central Florida street romance type of vibe. Imma Dog is another Enigmatic favorite that did well with a much more upbeat style and a gritier attitude as Moe’s warning his enemies to not “fuck with me(Moe), cuz imma dog.” Already, Moe shows he can go from upbeat tempos to more complex, melodic hooks within a single album at the early stages of his career.

His latest piece of work, Rich Dreamin’  is mind blowing and really sets the tone for what’s to come from this Central Floridian. Released in late 2019, this single boosted Moe to new heights getting him over the 400,000 monthly listeners mark, with one track in particular titled Outta There sitting at 4.4 million plays. For reference, it was under 1.5 million this time last month.

Numbers aside, the beat and vocals on the track are insane with Moe rapping “I’m Outta There, I’m Gone,” over a fresh, playboi carti type of beat. Moe’s doubters said he “wouldn’t be shit, they was wrong” and this track does nothing but prove that. With no major label help or promotional backing, just himself and great production, Moe killed this EP. The other takeaway track for me that’s a must add to your daily playlist is “End Of Summer,” the song starts soft with no bass and just him echoing his friends are “reminiscing, on all the good times and all the bad hoes we hit.” As the bass drops, Moe continues to kill the beat with hard lines and a very old school rhythmic delivery and tone that many hip hop heads old and new will appreciate.

Make sure to go listen to Moe and show this Orlando native some love. Show your friends this underground king while he's still relatively unknown and keep watching @moeisbetter on Instagram or follow us @engmtcent for what comes next.
