Moneybagg Yo Delivers Highly Anticipated Video For “Wockesha” With Appearance From Lil Wayne

Today, multiplatinum musician Moneybagg Yo unveiled the long-awaited video for his hit song, “Wockesha,” which he co-directed alongside Ben Marc.

The breezy visual kicks off with a cameo from hip-hop legend Lil Wayne, who divulges his infamous speech on dismissing those who can’t mind their business.  Frame by frame, we see Moneybagg Yo become disillusioned by a lover which includes him seeing a mirage that equates to a complicated relationship.

“Wockesha” quickly became a fan favorite from the release of Bagg’s critically-acclaimed fourth studio album, A Gangsta’s Pain, which  recently earned gold-certification from the RIAA. On the metaphorical record, which samples DeBarge’s pillowy track, “Stay With Me,” Bagg finds himself taping into more of his emotional side. The Southern artist opens up about indulging on his toxic pleasures, he raps “One minute I’m done with you, the next one I be runnin’ back Go your way, I go my way, but somehow we be still attached.” Today the track has nearly 150 million streams globally across all streaming partners and has charted on the Billboard Hot 100.

Over the weekend, Bagg hit the stage at the 2021 BET Music Awards to perform a medley of “Wockesha” and his No. 1 song “Time Today,” which VIBE Magazine praised Moneybagg Yo gets the crowd turned up as he tears through his performance, delivering each line with the fervor and conviction heard on the actual record.” To date, A Gangsta’s Pain has cumulatively tallied over 300 million streams and counting. Meanwhile, Billboard, Complex, and UPROXX have already listed it as “Best Albums of 2021 So Far.”

A Gangsta’s Pain showcases Moneybagg’s versatility as an artist. He opens up with some of his most powerful tracks yet, but he also turns up with indisputable and inimitable bangers. Among those, it boasts singles such as the hard-hitting “Shottas (Lala), platinum-selling Time Today, “Hard For The Next” [feat. Future], and the recent anthem “GO!” [feat. BIG30]. The 22-track opus earned widespread critical acclaim upon arrival. Billboard applauded his “authentic stories that connect to both the hearts and minds of the streets.” Meanwhile, UPROXX observed, Moneybagg Yo steps out of his comfort zone to conquer A Gangsta’s Pain on his pensive new album.” Rolling Stone highlighted “Certified Neptunes” [feat. Pharrell] as a “Song You Need To Know.Continuing his takeover, Moneybagg recently made his late-night television debut with an impressive medley of “Time Today” and “Hard For The Next” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
