The challenge for a fighter is not only with his opponent. It starts with confidence -- and confidence starts with training. Almost a year ago, in July 2010, Moe Green released Rocky Maivia: Non-Title Match, Green’s unofficial debut and a bold proclamation in his fight toward greatness. The release earned the Vallejo, California native strong reviews and high acclaim, as well as a coveted Show & Prove feature in XXL Magazine to go along with his spot in KMEL’s inaugural Bay Area Freshman 10 class. But nothing comes easy. And so, despite the early accomplishments, Moe Green has kept his training consistent, eschewing the big-name co-signs and instead choosing to remain the focal point of each of his releases. This includes Green's latest release, his forthcoming EP, Lionheart, a testament to the Vallejo rapper's continued keen focus, determination, and passion, as he continues his journey towards that title. Moe Green's new EP, Lionheart, will be released on June 27th and is being presented by OnSMASH and BRWTNSS.
