MP3: Moe Green - Top Turnbuckle Lifestyle
The Vallejo Native Speaks On Dreams And Risks In His New Single
Critical Praise for Moe Green:
Selected as a member of 106 KMEL's (the biggest Bay Area hip-hop station) Freshmen Class of 2010.
Rising star and recent KMEL Bay Area Freshman 10 class selection, Moe Green is readying the release of his debut album, Rocky Maivia: Non-Title Match, on Interdependent Media. Produced by Nick Maples, the new single, "Top Turnbuckle Lifestyle," finds Moe, whose Twitter handle is, aptly, @MoeTheDreamer, looking toward the future as he dreams of success. "In this song, I'm just trying to tell people what's gonna happen after I reach the next level in my career and in life," says Moe. With a smooth synthesizer and drums in the background, Moe's voice flows over the beat, as clear and lucid as the message he's sending. "I'm bout to kill it no bluffin'/yea I'm rubbin elbows with industry people who did something," raps Moe as he continues to make strides of turning his dreams and visions into reality.
Also staying true to the roots of the album concept, the title for the track, similar to the title of the album, references wrestling. "That's why I called it Top Turnbuckle Lifestyle," explains Moe. "In wresting that's when the guy is on the top rope and jumps off not knowing if he is going to land the move or not so he is really just putting it all out there with the risk." For this Vallejo native, Moe is ready to dish out a take down.

The rap game is overflowing with aspiring new MCs, all crammed into a single ring fighting for that lone heavyweight title. One particular competitor who has fully dedicated himself to the good fight is 22-year old Moe Green from Vallejo, California. His forthcoming debut album, Rocky Maivia: Non Title Match, is titled after Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's first professional ring name and perfectly embodies Moe place in today's hip-hop circuit - the newcomer who is one day going to hold the championship belt. Like any fighter, years of training, dedication, and discipline are required to claim the top spot. Moe has been training for this his entire life. Having competed in speech and poetry meets growing up, Moe found himself genuinely attracted to the creative freedom music imparts early in his life, even writing rhymes in kindergarten with his childhood best friend and E-40's son, Droop-E. Listeners of Rocky Maiva can expect to hear tales from a young man from a hard hit city trying to find his way in the world the best he can. On growing from Rocky Maivia to one day standing amongst the greats, Moe says, "I need to win a couple belts first. I have to prove that I have the skill to do that and this album is like my wrestling debut." And so, the journey begins.
