Dominican-born, now Brooklyn-based, young rapper Mozart Rick has his eye on domination in 2017. After catching some early buzz due to collaborations with artists like Juelz Santana, Uno The Activist, and Castro Guapo, Mozart inked a label deal with SixtyFive Entertainment / Asylum (Warner Music Group) and has today dropped the official video for his track “Window”, which has garnered almost 1-million spins on Soundcloud. The track is also available today on all digital platforms including Spotify and iTunes.

Mozart Rick’s story is a classic tale of New York City: He moved from the Dominican Republic when he was nine, settling in the Bronx amidst extended family. He didn’t speak English at the time, and wasn’t too excited about learning a whole new language. Music was there, however, to help bridge the gap—Rick’s interest in rap began soon after moving to the States, when he was just 10 years old. Fast forward to 2016, and Rick’s raps have him poised to break into the upper echelons of the music industry. “If it wasn’t for New York,” he says, “I’m not sure I would’ve ever been determined to pursue a career in music.””
