Ozay Moore signs with Illect, releases free EP

Illect Recordings wasted no time releasing new music for its newest signee, hip-hop artist Ozay Moore.

Ozay, formerly known as Othello, dropped a free project, The Between Time EP, alongside the announcement of his signing.

The Lansing, Michigan-based emcee is also a former member of the group Lightheaded, which included Braille and Ohmega Watts. The 20-plus-year, hip-hop veteran released his most recent retail LP, Taking L’s, last June.

“We believe Ozay Moore adds a unique approach and perspective to our roster,” Illect president and founder Josh Niemyjski said. “His focus on art being a tool to foster education and community is unique in hip-hop. And, with our track record of artist placement in media, we’ll help Ozay expand his audience to additional markets.”
