DG Yola - Money Money

  • Artist: DG Yola
  • Track: Money Money
  • Producer: Jim Jonsin
  • Album: Gutta World

UPDATE: "Money Money" is no longer available to stream.

While money is the motivation behind most rappers' entering the business, often times it takes a deadly turn. Just ask Atlanta’s DG Yola, who in March of '07 was almost killed in a robbery attempt-turned-attempted murder. Taking advantage of the fact that he has lived to tell the tale, Yola warns all street visitors about making the wrong moves in pursuit of that glorified Money Money. While Jim Jonsin's upbeat production is somewhat inharmonious with the serious tone of the song, it might get Money Money spun at radio, which could serve as Yola’s very own hood PSA. The oft-delayed debut, Gutta World, is currently set to drop sometime this spring off Atlantic Records.
