Each founded by a respected rap businessman, Gucci Mane‘s 1017 Eskimo and Young Dolph‘s Paper Route EMPIRE symbolize the flashiest and wittiest of Southern rap. The two crews connect on “1017 Paper Route,” the latest collaboration between 1017 capo Z Money and PRE lieutenant Key Glock. With a horror movie instrumental from Lil Mexico, who lends ominous organs and discordant bells, “1017 Paper Route” finds the two rappers trading bars in rocksteady, metronomic flows, as Z Money rocks a Louie V t-shirt worth $700 and Glock covers himself in diamond baguettes. Premiered by Complex, “1017 Paper Route” packs more outrageous stunting into 132 seconds than many rappers can manage in their entire careers. “1017 Paper Route” is the latest single from Shawty Paid, Z Money’s upcoming album. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Along with “1017 Paper Route,” Z Money partners with The FADER to share a new FADER Frequencies mini-documentary about the Chicago native’s life, livelihood, and motivations. The doc takes a look at Z Money’s upbringing on the West Side of Chicago, introducing us to his father, the owner of a trucking business, who infected Z Money with the hustler’s mentality. Buoyed by Z Money’s engaging personality, the doc shows how Z’s work ethic translated into rap, as he spends hours in the studio searching for the perfect beat to demolish.
On Shawty Paid, the follow-up to last year’s Chiraq Mogul, Z Money zeroes in on the process of getting money, methodically detailing his hustles and reveling in the fruits of his labor. Wielding his high-pitched sing-song atop sinister beats from the likes of 808 Mafia, ChaseTheMoney, Southside, Bandplay, IzzeTheProducer, and others, the newfound ATL native combines the ice-cold honesty favored in his hometown with the extravagant boasts favored by rappers in his adopted city. Giving a home to singles “Millions,” the Gucci Mane and Hoodrich Pablo Juan featuring lead single, and the recent, HYPEBEAST-premiered “Wealthy“, and with an additional guest appearance from Yung Mal, Shawty Paid arrives on May 10th via 1017 Eskimo/Alamo.
