Z Money made his bones through hard work and dedication, holing himself up in the studio and cranking out jams that amassed a following and caught the attention of Gucci Mane. Living the life that most can only dream of, Z Money shares “Wealthy,” his latest video. On “Wealthy,” produced by Hendrixx, Z Money skirts the line between living a life of luxury and creating enough wealth for his kids and grandkids. He knows the value of investing and saving, but since he came from nothing, why not spend a few G’s on a new timepiece? In the video, Z Money rocks all-white Air Forces in a tasteful and extravagant mansion, complete with marble floors and crystalline chandeliers, as he counts his bands and prepares to earn more. “Wealthy” is a highlight from Shawty Paid, Z Money’s new mixtape. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Wielding his high-pitched sing-song, the newfound ATL native combines the ice-cold honesty favored in his hometown of Chicago with the extravagant boasts favored by rappers in his adopted city of Atlanta. The project boasts a regionally and sonically diverse array of producers, including DY and Southside of 808 Mafia, ChaseTheMoney, Bandplay, and Lil Mexico, who deliver sinister soundscapes for Z to apply his street-savvy bars. Giving a home to singles “Millions,” the Gucci Mane and Hoodrich Pablo Juan-featuring lead single, and the menacing Key Glock collab “1017 Paper Route,” and with an additional guest appearance from Yung Mal, Shawty Paid arrives via 1017 Eskimo/Alamo.
Born into poverty on the West Side of Chicago, Z Money lifted himself out of the hood with his sharp rhymes and strong entrepreneurial instincts, using his earnings as a rapper to start businesses in trucking, restaurants, real estate, and dog-breeding. The 1017 Eskimo signee explored his past in a recent FADER Frequencies mini-documentary, which introduced 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.
