Growing up off Pop, Hip-Hop and R&B, Motzy writes and records with all three combined. Stevie Wonder, Russell Simmons, Big Daddy Kane, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Nas, R. Kelly and The Roots musically inspire him. Motzy is really into making music thats catchy, humorous, has sex appeal, and that you're able to dance to with the respect and honor of knowing true hip-hop. Motzy has had the opportunity of performing at the 5 Spot, Club Flow, The 69th St. Bar & Terminal Grille, Pulaski Hall, LOVE Park, Lucky Strike, Tritone,Time Lounge and Club Flow. The success of his first mixtape/cd "Welcome to Phillywood" circa 2003 gave Motzy the oppurtunity to vibe with other local artist, producers, and DJ's. This also allowed him to create a buzz dat made his second cd "Do You know Motz?" circa 2005 become a local underground favorite among peers and supporters of his music. While performing Motzy was able to get a write up in the Philadelphia Daily News Hip-Hop column with Raw Life Entertainment founded by The Roots aphilliated Dice Raw. Motzy auditioned for music reality shows, showcases, and a few labels. He says just being able to pick up a book and learn the ins and outs, the pros and cons, the ups and downs, and the trails and tribulations of the music industry is very important for him. With 3 Myspace years under his belt Motzy has been blessed to speak to, get advice from and associate himself with an array of already established industry folks from the likes of Jimmy Henchmen of Czar Entertainment, G.O.O.D music recording artist Really Doe, industry socialite Ricky Romance and The Butcher himself DJ VLAD just to name a few. Motzy has taken his Myspace grind to new heights by calling his sound New Wave Alternative Hip Hop and becoming the number 1 Indie Artist in that category within the surrounding Philadelphia area. From working with Canadian Trip Hop/Pop/R&B recording mogul Tyler Adam, to coming up with astonishing song concepts with Australian production wiz Antzilla, Motzy wants to be seen in the light as a Philadelphia recording artist with International appeal and has grabbed fans all over the world to make this idea come true. As an American born and raised recording artist its amazing to see mostly people of Middle Eastern, European and Asian countries subscribed as readers of his daily Myspace blog. Motzy knows and understands that this business is not promised to anyone but his consistency, the love and support he receives, and the trust in himself keep him going.
While still under the Beautiful Black Children Productions umbrella Motzy has reached out on his own to upstart Cliche Enterprises Ent., W.Y.O.S.I. (Wear Ya Own Style Incorporated) Fashions and his super secret conglamorate comprised of Mc's, Producers, Singers, and DJ's called "Da N. Crowd". With the internet success of his 3rd album "Hollyhood Here I Come" Motzy reached out to some known talent all around the world and combined certain songs off his previous 2 releases to bring you what he subtitled…
"The Motzarelly Collection" 2003-2008. This album gave you exclusive songs off of both 2 previous releases, songs that were recorded in between and after the 2 previous releases and 3 official new songs that were recorded epecially for this album. The first video for this album which is actually the title track to the album "HOLLYHOOD HERE I COME" was seen and distributed on over 20 video outlets throughout the world wide web. This song told the detailed story from the beginning of Motzy's musical hiphop journey at the tender age of 9 all the way up to that present moment. The second was "SCARED OF MY SUCCESS" which garned alot of downloads when it was release as a single to the internet. So good that Motzy did a promo video for it just to attract the eyes of those waiting for the actual video. The actual video was released a few months later and the views were so impacting that Youtube freezed the video for counting plays on its server. The response to the video was so good that the video popped up rapidly all over the net on over 30 sites. Some may say the"HOLLYHOOD HERE I COME" album was an internet succcess and Motzy would say… it was fun making it!
So if your checking for Hip Hop with emotion and an unfamiliar sound, take the time out to give Nel Motzy Esq. a listen and oh yeah… be sure to tell him what ya think.
Motzy can be seen and heard all over the internet.
