Talib Kweli (LIVE full band show!)
Ever since emerging as a member of Black Star in the late 1990s, Talib Kweli is one of the few artists making commercially viable music that matters. The Brooklyn bred rapper's hard-hitting music has been able to educate and entertain simultaneously. So it is no wonder that at the peak of their fame, both Jay-Z and 50 Cent named Talib Kweli as one of their favorite rappers.

In the most respected parts of Houston Texas and throughout World, the name “Cory-Mo” represents music and business excellence. Cory-Mo has actually been a staple in the Texas community for many years. Not only as a Producer / Artist / Performer, but also equally important as a first rate Businessman.
Cory-Mo has been blessed to have the unique opportunity to have worked side by side with one of the most prolific artists and innovative producers the music industry has ever witnessed in the form of the late great southern hip hop legend Chad Butler p/k/a Pimp C Of U.G.K. Cory-Mo had the unique opportunity to develop a life-long connection and friendship with Pimp C which eventually lead to directly mentoring Cory-Mo on the principles to follow in building a successful music career. Pimp’s contributions toward Cory’s development, competence and polish as a producer and artist cannot be overstated.
M.A.D. Studios (a state of the art studio facility owned by Cory-Mo and his brother Mike Mo eventually became the recognized home studio facility for UGK and every UGK project commercially released since 1999 was substantially recorded at M.A.D. Studios and engineered by Cory Mo and Mike Mo.
As noted earlier, Cory-Mo operates and co-owns M.A.D. Studios with his brother Mike Mo. M.A.D. Studios is a full service music recording and production facility. As a recording engineer, Cory-Mo has worked with everyone from U.G.K. to Erykah Badu, Rick Ross, Talib Kweli, Mya, Lil Wayne, Too Short, Geto Boys, David Banner, Devin the Dude, & many more.
The original operations for M.A.D. Studios was in the Houston metropolitan area, but in 2009 M.A.D. Studios opened up a second full service location in Atlanta, Georgia and now both locations are in commercial operations. Cory-Mo is the lead engineer at the M.A.D. Studios’ Atlanta location and this facility has become the “go to” spot for up and coming artists, songwriters and producers in the Altanta Metropolitan area for the nationally recognized recording, mixing and mastering services provided by M.A.D. Studios.
Cory is also Bun B’s opening act as well as co-performer when Bun hits the stage performing his solo and UGK classics. In this role, similar to the role he had with Pimp, Cory-Mo has been afforded the opportunity to travel and perform all over the United States as well as Europe and Canada.
Cory-Mo has also achieved notable success from corporate endorsement opportunities. Recently, respected liquor brand Jose Cuervo signed Cory-Mo to an endorsement deal to promote Jose Cuervo’s new Tequila brand called “Platino” with special emphasis to the Houston Metropolitan market. Directly because of Cory-Mo’s marketing and event planning and hosting skills, Platino is experiencing great gains in the tequila drinking community of the Houston metropolitan area.
Another priceless memory for Cory-Mo/C-Mozart Muzik is “Top Drop Dyne,” a Best Buy bonus track on UGK’s Underground Kingz album. As Cory-Mo quotes below:
“That’s one of the last songs I produced and rapped on with Pimp C.
I think it’s gon’ forever be a UGK Classic.”
“UNDERGROUND KINGZ” Album which “Top Drop Dyne” was a part of eventually charted at #1 in Billboard Magazine adding massive weight to Cory-Mo’s already mounting list of achievements. In addition to receiving a #1 Billboard chart status, the “UNDERGROUND KINGZ” eventually went on to achieve “Platinum” certification by the RIAA.
In terms of current projects, C` Mo is now working on a DVD documentary called “Classic Footage” which will definitely be a must buy . Lots of behind the scenes footage of all of his exclusive Studio Sessions with some of your favorite Artist & Producers!!
