In 2003, Mojoe released their independent debut Classic.Ghetto.Soul. In 2006, Mojoe signed to Mathew Knowles' Music World label and re-released their debut album nationwide through Sony Distribution. They returned in 2010 with the album Dirty Genes. Now, Mojoe is back and set to reclaim their lane with songs that blend soul, rap, jazz, and R&B with skillfully honest songwriting. They are reintroducing themselves to the world with a strategic rollout of EPs, followed by a full length album they've titled Ancient.Future.Soul.
The EPs will be a series of carefully curated playlists that capture Mojoe's unique blend of soul with new singles, remixes of songs from their catalog, covers, and excerpts from their most recent interviews. The first EP, Soul Prophets Playlist, Volume 1, will make waves upon release in early 2023, led by the single "Let's Geaux Get It."
The culminating album, Ancient.Future.Soul., is the album these soul prophets were sent to share. Though the album is built on the core principles of classic jazz, soul, and hip-hop, Mojoe has tapped into a story and a frequency that will never expire.
