Ronald “Mobezzy” Brooks Jr., was born on the north side of Columbus, Ohio on October 2, 1984. Growing up on Cleveland Avenue, he listened to music faithfully, independently and with influence from his mother playing it all the time. At a young age, Mobezzy’s uncle had parties every weekend that he looked forward to in order to be able to listen to music. With music playing a big role in his life, he began to make beats on anything that he could, predominantly tables and the following year began writing poetry. At the age of twelve Mobezzy obtained a drum set. During this time, he attended Indianola Middle School, where he took band classes. He then moved to Atlanta, Georgia and attended Griffin High School. This is when Mobezzy recorded his first song with a producer by the name of D 4 Nasty and began to chase his dreams of becoming a rapper.
Due to a few minor setbacks, Mobezzy then decided to attend Job Corp and attended for retail sales. In an attempt to make his way back to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio, Mobezzy faced the reality of being dismissed from Job Corp. He came back home to Ohio and at that time, faced criminal charges. He did not allow this to bring him down and continued on with his passion. After some time away from doing what he loved, Mobezzy bought himself a keyboard and got back into music. He then decided it was time to finish school and started attending Life Skills. During this time, Mobezzy was able to network and met other people that were pursuing their interest in music and this is when the battle rapping began. With music as his true passion, he decided to quit school and start working to be able to focus solely on his music.
Mobezzy grew up listening to music and proclaims that some of the following artists are who inspired him: Prince, Top Authority, Spice One, NWA, Bone, Twista, Tupac, and Nas, just to name a few. His inspiration to become an artist is that artists have a power to make people listen to the message that they are attempting to portray and he felt that he had words of wisdom to share with others. Mobezzy also was inspired to pursue his career as an artist because he wanted to be able to see himself as a famous musician. Mobezzy’s current role models in life are his cousins, Greg and Neak. He feels that they have taught him many life lessons and the most important one that has stuck with him is how to get money and power by his presence.
Mobezzy describes himself as a strong individual, confident, independent, educated, and artistically inclined. He currently compares his music to Tupac Shakur because as a rapper, Tupac spoke upon real life situations that others could relate to and this is something that Mobezzy currently focuses on in his music. He wants others to know of life’s struggles and where they have led him and molded him into who he is as a person today. The three most important things to Mobezzy is first and foremost, his family, especially his two sons, money, and his beliefs.
Shortly after Mobezzy’s first son was born is when Capital City Assassins (C.C.A) was also born. He met Robb G and B.Rice and they started discussing music. It was then decided that they were going to come together as a group and this is when C.C.A became official. After they started C.C.A, Mobezzy was introduced to Dizfuncshunal and the family started to grow. C.C.A. is, “a family, it is more than just business, an entertainment company, or organization. C.C.A. means everything to me, more than family even, because we built it from the ground up,” per Mobezzy. Currently, the C.C.A. family consists of the following members: Mobezzy, B.Rice, Robb G, Anthrax, Dizfuncshunal, and Cleve.
