One-third of the Swede Genius Music Group, Moe Carter is currently signed to SGMG Inc. The New Jersey rapper started to make a name for himself as a teenager in Franklin Park, NJ freestyling any and everywhere he could. From his halls of his high school to the streets of his neighborhood, he slayed his competitors time and time again. As he got older, his game spread to local bars and ciphers. Now he’s got almost half a million plays on Soundcloud and a couple of EPs on the way.
Come May 2018 Moe Carter will drop an EP, Amethyst. It will fall in line with his previous work. With a similar style to that of Earl Sweatshirt and Jay-Z, Moe comes with a variety of topics in his rhymes. He spits about everything from politics to sex to struggles and wisdom. If he’s living it, he’s rhyming about it. It’s that personal touch intertwined with his intuition and versatility that has gotten him this far. That includes being featured on Prince Hakeem’s “Famous Radio Live” in Hampton, Virginia as well as recording the single “Dolla Dreams with a fellow Carolinian artist on the spot after the interview.
Moe Carter’s music speaks for itself though. Whether it’s “Coma,” a song about an arousing euphoric experience or the grimier “Word on the Street.” Of that song, Moe notes, “This song is about the streets you love like one of your bipolar relatives. Like you’d give them the world but at the same time keeping your back on the wall and never turning around.” Those two are older tracks that have led Moe to play a ways away from New Jersey in Virginia.
Those are just the beginning as Moe has released the singles “Neighborhood” and "Sourbunga" ahead of his May 2018 release of Amethyst. It’s sure to be inspiring tracks for those who are about creating their own vibe. After the May release, Moe plans on releasing another project at the end of the year in December entitled Dr. Satin.
Not only did Moe Carter come up admiring Jay-Z’s sound but also his work ethic. He wants to expand himself not only as a artist but as a businessman within the industry as well. A true hustler, Moe Carter is well on his way to being a prominent figure in not only the hip-hop community but the music industry as a whole. With a pair of EPs dropping in the 2018 calendar year as well as shows to be announced, the world needs to keep an eye on Moe Carter.
