Mozzy has enjoyed a busy 2020 so far, celebrating his home in California as he prepares for the next level of fame with his debut album. Before Beyond Bulletproof launches, however, Mozzy is premiering another music video, this time for “I Ain’t Perfect.”

With sweeping shots of Mozzy’s local hangouts throughout the neighborhood, the clip pairs neatly with the wistful lyrics, which include — among other things — consideration of Mozzy’s battle with depression, his awareness of societal discontent and continued appreciation for where he came from. “I ain’t perfect, but I work on that, at least / I ain’t perfect, I been hurtin’, let me be,” Mozzy raps on the chorus. “I’m returning to the slums to get my people right / Them people undefeated in them courts, it ain’t no equal fight. … Every time I slid was for the hood behalf.”

Watch the “I Ain’t Perfect” video above and mark your calendars for Mozzy’s Beyond Bulletproof, which drops May 1.

Most recently, Mozzy touched on his rise to success with the “Tunnel Vision” video.
