A month after teaming up with Jay Rock for “The Other Side,” Mozzy returns to his roots by honoring one of local legends of the Bay Area’s modern underground for “Free Yatta 2.” A collaboration with currently-incarcerated cult-favorite Yatta, “Free Yatta 2” serves as the sequel to the equally-hard-hitting “Free Yatta,” which originally arrived in 2017. Notably, the “Free Yatta 2” visual features clips from Mozzy’s notorious 2014 video “Tha Truth” and includes appearances by Mozzy Records affiliate Babyface Gunna and others.

“Usually I work off a vibe, I meet somebody and then the first thing we say, ‘I function with your shit, you function with my shit.’ It’s a mandatory click-up,” Mozzy told Okayplayer in fall of 2018, explaining how collaborations like “Free Yatta 2” are pieced together. “It either go off a relationship or just I be in somebody’s city, they’re tapped in, somebody in my city, I tap in. But we try to let it happen naturally. We try not to force it, you understand me. We ain’t calling people and asking niggas what they budget is or nothing like that. We let it be natural.”

“I feel like I’m the dopest gangsta rapper right now in this present moment,” Mozzy added. “I don’t feel there’s one gangsta rapper out there that could fuck with me, as far as wordplay. I’m not talking about album sales. I’m talking about craft. I’m talking about cook-up.”
