Early life

Noble was born in McKinney, Texas, but raised in the tough parts of Dallas, Texas, in neighborhoods surrounded by violence and crime. In an interview for Vlad TV, he admits that he often got in trouble as a child.[5]

Although he lived with his mother, he said he often saw his father, too, even though they were separated. Noble describes how his mother often took in and looked after other neighborhood kids even though she struggled to provide for him and his brother.

They lived in a two-bedroom house; he often didn’t have a bed and slept on pallets or the couch. He started getting into trouble at a very young age of around 13-14, when he first went to jail for aggravated robbery.

What distinguished Mo3 from other fellow rappers and brought him recognition is that he didn’t write about fabulous life, luxury cars, and designer things.

He used his rough life as inspiration for his lyrics. He raps about how his mother couldn’t pay the bills, and they had to eat noodles every day, Mo3 stated for the Dallas Observer.[6]

In his “All The Way Down” track, he talks about how he often had to sleep outside the house on the patio, how their electricity was cut out, and they had to go to the local stores to charge their phones.

His brother is CoGotti, who is also a Dallas-popular hip-hop artist and rapper.

Career

Noble released his debut mixtape, “Shottaz,” in 2014. Two years later, in 2016, he released his second mixtape, “Shottaz Reloaded,” which spawned numerous hits and put him in the spotlight as one of the most famous rappers in Dallas.

It also brought him the attention of Boosie Badazz - his favorite artist, who signed him up, which was the ultimate cosign deal in Mo3’s career.

“It’s one thing to have a rapper cosign you, but it’s your favorite rapper who you know word-for-word, who you live by, who you listened to when you went to school, to sign you up [it’s a totally different thing],” Nobel explains in the Vlad TV interview.

His second album featured the remix of the “Hold Ya Tongue” single by Mr. Lucci, a fellow Texas rapper. The single nearly hit two million streaming views a year after it was released and helped him get noticed by the local audience and the rap community.[7]

The album also allowed Noble to sign with other top Dallas rappers like Dorrough, Lil Ronny, and DJ Hollywood Bay Bay, a famous K104 radio personality.

The same year, 2016, he released his third album, “4 Indictments,” which peaked at no. 1 on the Heatseekers chart. In 2017, he dropped “Gangsta Love, Part 1.

In 2010, Mo3 released two remarkable singles, "No Feelings," which was a sample of Aaliyah’s “One In A Million” and “Too Much Pride."

In 2020, Noble and Boosie Badazz released their joint album “Badazz MO3.” It peaked at the 136th spot on the Billboard 200 chart.
