The Signal features its first female artist, MoBo the Great.  

Just in time to close out women’s history month, The Signal showcases its first female artist, MoBo the Great, who burst onto Chicago’s rap scene in the most memorable way possible, when she made history, as hip hop legend Jay Z pulled her on stage with him during his 2010 Blueprint 3 tour, to spit a verse in front of her hometown.

In January 2014, she made history once again by repeating the once-in-a-lifetime feat for a second time, once again joining Jay onstage to drop her bars to a packed United Center audience.

Since then, the 20 year old artist has been working hard at establishing herself as a staple in Chicago’s scene.  She’s created a buzz the past few months around her soon to be released debut project, FuckThePublic, aka FTP, which features Drill Queen, Katie Got Bandz, and the Grammy nominated singer BJ the Chicago Kid, staying true to her city and keeping her album “as Chicago as possible.”

With ComplexNoisey and Vibe premieres under her belt, and an in-print Source MagazineInterview, Mobo is an outlier in the trap-heavy world of Chicago hip-hop, and eschews tracks about violence in favor of wordplay about the delicate intricacies of day-to-day life, and the hunger for more.  It’s music that’s universally relatable, but simultaneously entertaining; no noise, just bars.

The Signal has chosen to spotlight the visuals for her track “Heaven,” shot by Closed Sessions, best known for being the home label for rising Chi-town star Alex Wiley.  Production was handled by longtime friend and collaborator OG Webbie, who recently produced Big Sean’s stand out track “All Your Fault,” featuring Kanye West and Travis Scott.  The video is a rich and fresh drum-heavy affair that put’s MoBo’s flows and charisma on display for the world to see.
