Up from the underground powerhouse that is The Demigodz (Apathy, Celph Titled, Styles of Beyond) comes Motive, a sharply-calibrated MC with raw charisma and true street sensibility. After first appearing on the 2002 Ill Boogie/Caroline Demigodz EP, The Godz Must Be Crazy, Motive has been a staple within the crew that has enjoyed great independent success due to its cult-like following. In true East Coast fashion, NJ-bred, Connecticut representer Motive a/k/a “Hoody 2 Shoez” brings out his debut solo CD + DVD release, Mo-llinium: The Takeover Begins. This 24 track disc is a mixtape album professionally packaged and includes a DVD showcasing behind the scenes footage and music videos for some of the tracks contained on the mixtape. The album features original production from Apathy and Chum the Skrilla Guerilla as well as many cleverly manipulated old school and industry standards. Fellow crew members Celph Titled, Apathy, Esoteric and Styles of Beyond all make appearances and help make Motive’s debut a banger from start to finish. This release comes as a follow-up to Mo’s 2007 European Tour with Apathy and Main Flow as well as his continuous buzz appearances on major releases such as Apathy’s Eastern Philosophy, Green Lantern and Styles of Beyond’s Razor Tag, Apathy’s It’s the Bootleg 2xCD collection, and his role in the 2006 independent film, 6 Brothaz In A Cadillac, alongside Wildchild (of Lootpack), Slim Kid Tre (of Pharcyde) and other underground cohorts such as Mighty Casey and Oktober. With Mo-llinium showcasing Motive’s sound, solo projects from fellow crew members due to surface this year, and a full-length Demigodz LP currently in the works . . . let the takeover begin!
