Memphis’ Moneybagg Yo has risen gradually, working until he finally caught national attention. Last year’s A Gangsta’s Pain was arguably his best work to date, digging deeper into his soul than anything he’d put out before.
Today isn’t the day for that sort of reflecting, as he recently dropped “Blow” to celebrate his birthday. It finds him doing just what he deserves to be doing: stunting. Even still, he keeps it honest, dropping lines like, “Lost a lot of money in the trap / then got it back off rhyming.”
Having recently collaborated with the likes 2 Chainz and YG, it’s the very sort of victory lap he’s earned. With propulsive keys and head-nodding drums, “Blow” proves as addictive as it is prideful.
Check it out below. As part of Yo Gotti’s budding CMG label, there’s surely more to come from Moneybagg soon.
