Today, Memphis star Moneybagg Yo drops “See Wat I’m Sayin,” a self-assured new single powered by ominous production by Tay Keith and Breadgang/N Less signee, Drumgod, sly flexes, and effortless confidence. Combining slick talk with an infectious hook, “See Wat I’m Sayin” is the sound of a heavyweight enjoying his status as a superstar. “See Wat I’m Sayin” is now available at all digital retailers. Listen HERE via CMG/N-less Entertainment/Interscope Records. Watch the accompanying video directed by Ben Marc.
Coasting over murky synths, Moneybagg lets loose bars that oscillate between playful luxury and casual, but deadly seriousness. “Four bitches can fit in the Phantom/I be with Baby when I’m in Atlanta,” he raps, evoking images that can only come from a life in the fast lane. Elsewhere on the track, he unloads some unimpressed observations of would-be rivals: “I know a click got more reppers than steppers/One gone shoot sumn maybe outta 10 of em.”
“See Wat I’m Sayin” arrives just a few weeks removed from the release of “Rocky Road,” a Kodak Black-assisted single full of heartfelt trench recollections and soul-baring honesty. These singles are just the latest entries in one of rap’s most well-rounded catalogs.
Bagg’s new release also comes shortly after the multiplatinum star, CMG head honcho Yo Gotti and CMG labelmates EST Gee, Mozzy, Blac Youngsta and Lehla Samia were featured on the cover of Billboard and crowned as “The Hardest-Working Label in Hip-Hop.”
As a pioneer of his craft, the Memphis native has been able to garner a cult fan base and prove his artistry as one of the best rappers currently working. After sharing his 2020 album Time Served, Bagg continued to prove his magnetism with the release of his fourth studio record, A Gangsta’s Pain, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2021.
The critically acclaimed project features notable features including the likes of Pharrell, Lil Wayne, Future, and Jhené Aiko, and it was named among the “Best of 2021” by several media outlets including The New York Times, NPR, Billboard, Fader, Rolling Stone, and Complex. In addition to his album going No. 1, he also topped the Urban Radio chart four times consecutively with “Said Sum,” “Time Today,” “Wockesha,” and “Scorpio.” A Gangsta’s Pain was the fourth highest-selling rap album of the year and ultimately led to his performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, a live performance on the BET Awards, and several award nominations (including at the BET Hip Hop Awards, MTV VMAs, and iHeartRadio Awards).
Most recently, Moneybagg Yo also starred in a Nike commercial alongside NBA star Ja Morant, helped develop artists on his label, Bread Gang, and continued to explore different business ventures—his latest being Vior Water. In 2022, he seems set to maintain his unbreakable hot streak. With songs like “See Wat I’m Sayin,” he makes it clear his reign atop rap isn’t stopping anytime soon.
