Back in January, Moneybagg Yo liberated his third studio album Time Served, which saw 15 tracks from the hip hop star and features from Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby, Future, Summer Walker, and more. This week, he dropped another visual from the project for “123,” which is produced by DJ XO and sees assistance from fellow Memphis rapper Blac Youngsta. The song is an animated ode to trapping, dodging the feds, flexing your success, and more:
“Trap out the drip, this a Dior hoodie, stash on full, need somewhere to put it/
FN on me with the blue tip bullets, thinkin’ it’s a prop ‘til I up it, pull it/
Paparazzi on me and the fans keep askin’, ‘why you swap the bougie b***h out for a ratchet?’/
Championship ring like a small face Patek, Lambo truck and car parked at the mansion/”
Directed by M. Harris Films, the clip sees Moneybagg and Blac Youngsta keeping things flashy on the runway, where judges rated models by comparing dimes to pennies. As with many of the visuals out, jewelry, cars, and eye candy are aplenty throughout the two-and-a-half minute video.
“123” follows Moneybagg’s previous visuals for “Pistol By The Bed,” “Match My Fly,” and the Lil Baby-assisted “U Played.” His most successful album to date, Time Served earned Moneybagg Yo a top five spot on the Billboard 200, thanks to moving 66,000 equivalent album units. Prior to that, he dropped off last year’ 43VA HEARTLESS, another type five with 40,000 equivalent album units sold.
Aside from the music, Moneybagg Yo — real name Demario DeWayne White, Jr. — has found himself in the news thanks to his relationship with socialite/social media model Ari Fletcher, who set the internet on fire via an interesting social media request for her significant other:
“I really want to have a third party in my relationship... Just two pretty ass faces and nice ass bodies. My n***a is big and can handle both of us, in every way. Baby, can we get a girlfriend?”
