It’s not everyday you become Boosie’s favorite rapper. Insert Mo3 from Dallas, who actually looked up to Boosie when he was coming up as a teenager. Real name Melvin Noble comes from humble beginnings, experiencing the streets and falling victim to being a product of his environment.
With music, Mo3 is able to vent and convey his deepest thoughts and feelings, giving hope to all aspiring rappers to follow suit. Last year, he released his album Osama — his nickname in the streets. Rather than focusing on the internet and social media, Mo3 physically makes it a point to show face in neighborhoods in every state.
King Ice caught up with Mo3 to discuss his very expensive chains, and his opinions on having to wear chains as an artist.
I see your drip. How much you got on?
I don’t have all of it on right now. I just have my boy Roy Lee with me, he’s one of my dead homies.
He’s on the back of your chain?
Yeah, I wear him. I don't put him on no shirts. I wear him. I got another chain from Johnny Dang, that's $75,000. Got my AP on. All-white Cuban, but this isn’t all of them.
Do you always wear your chains?
Usually, I wear them all. But see, we have to be in so many places. All these airports, I get tired of taking all of it off. I got $270K worth of jewelry on me. If you go through my Instagram pictures, you'll see where I'm wearing all of them.
Do you feel like you have to wear jewelry as an artist? Especially in LA.
It depends on what kind of artist you are. If you rap that lifestyle and you came from nothing, that person who looks up to you wants to see that. It gives them motivation. I remember when I had the fake ass chain on. So when they see me hop out with a real chain, you give them hope.
Your fans are looking at you like “you bought a necklace, they bought a necklace.” They’re like "hell yeah, he just went to Johnny!" They’re happy like they got it. But certain artists like J. Cole, they don't have on a chain. Drake’s another one. Drake doesn't worry about it, he doesn't rap about it. Coming from that lifestyle to where I have to go get ice and the bussdown Roll-E, of course he can do it. But I wear every single chain even when I'm in the house because I started from the bottom, and now I'm here.
