Those who hustle tend to get ahead in whatever their game of choice, and that fact isn't lost on local MC Muja Messiah, who at every turn concerns himself with staying one step ahead of the pack. Recently returning from Las Vegas, where he was recording material that follows the release of last year's Thee Adventures of a B-Boy D-Boy and MPLS Massacre mixtape, Muja looks to be on pace for another release this year that will help advance his presence amongst the Twin Cities' elite MCs. In addition to recently debuting a few new tracks, such as "Red Rover" and "We Survived the Bush Era," Muja's been on a tear, performing at high-profile gigs such as Dre Day VII and 3 the Hard Way, which also featured the likes of Atmosphere, Brother Ali, and Toki Wright. In another interesting gig, Muja will be performing prior to a showing of Scarface at the Uptown Theatre, the latest in a unique series that has been running throughout the winter. 18+.
