Moneybagg Yo is one of the hardest working rappers in the game. The independent artist has released over 10 mixtapes over the last six years and is widely considered to be one of the industry’s most exciting rappers on the rise.
The “Doin 2 Much” rapper is signed with Nless Entertainment, but after linking up with CMG (the label of his own mentor Yo Gotti) he inked a distribution deal with Interscope that allows him to maintain his status as an independent act. After all, Moneybagg Yo is all about staying humble and real.
“One of the biggest pieces of information Gotti ever gave me was ‘Chase the dream not the money,’” he told Fuse.
It’s this need to stay true to himself that has guided his debut album Reset; the album may boast features from Future and Kodak Black among others, but as Moneybagg Yo mentioned before, it’s all about going back to his roots.
