“Isolated” from Chicago based artist Mussa is his very first music video. It has a very different sound and vibe to it with a catchy hook and lyrics with melodies changing every 8 bars. The visuals match the audio very well. Towards the mid of the song he describes his life events maintaining the same energy and hype to it. Overall his current sound is a very unique and stylized version of rap music, with a vibe that is very different to a lot of what is currently popular within the mainstream rap genre with a perfect matching visuals.
Mussa is a musician and artist based out of the city of Chicago, Illinois. Born to immigrant parents, he experienced both an urban and suburban upbringing, and was introduced to music at a very young age. His mom organized musical events for crowds of 6000+ when Mussa was as young as six years old, and watching these performances sparked his initial curiosity about the world of music and performing. First singing, as many do, in front of a mirror with his mother’s hairbrush for a microphone while still a toddler, he got his first taste of studio recording at age sixteen. His upbringing, and the introduction to music at such a young age means he has grown up influenced by different cultures and backgrounds, and has been able to channel these experiences into his music. Led by an instinct to create, he is still making producing work three years later, and it has led him to grow and progress as an artist, pushing boundaries to create new and exciting sounds.
His current sound is a very unique and stylized version of rap music, with a vibe that is very different to a lot of what is currently popular within the mainstream rap genre. No single song that Mussa creates sounds like another, each one taking on a feeling of its own. He works in a very versatile way, almost becoming a musical chameleon to match the vibe and beat of each track. Working independently, his main goal with his music is to create something that is unique, and stays in line with his personal vision for the music. He also hopes to create accompanying visuals for his tracks as well.
With hopes to put on his own shows and events, and produce something new and noteworthy to come out of the Chicago area, Mussa is always working on new content. Currently his work, including the video for his track “Isolated,” can be found on YouTube, and across most popular music streaming platforms including SoundCloud, Apple Music, and Spotify.
