Memphis superstar Moneybagg Yo dropped “Rocky Road,” a heartfelt, Kodak Black-assisted new single that confirmed the pair’s status as the faces of modern, complex street rap. “Rocky Road” also debuted with an evocative video and is now available at all digital retailers via CMG/N-less Entertainment/Interscope Records. With this release, Bagg is featured on the cover of New Music Daily on Apple Music Listen HERE.
Cruising over emotive keys, Kodak kicks things off with a declaration of loyalty: “Tryna get to my hoe but the Perkys got me froze / Been doing my baby momma wrong and leaving her at home / I cannot leave you on your own, we made this child together.” For his part,Moneybagg injects memories of the hustle and damaged romance: “Out there standing by the pole, selling dope to buy some clothes / Cause I knew that attract the hoes, until one left my heart so cold / I just didn’t know no better made me hard on the next forever.” Soul-baring yet of the streets, “Rocky Road” is Moneybagg and Kodak at their best.
The video also dwells in that zone. Equal parts gritty, evocative, thoughtful, and real, the Young Chang-directed clip spins a familiar narrative as a man who’s already balancing life’s complexities finds himself at a crossroads: how to respond to another man’s reckless violence.
The two rappers bear witness, occupying a perspective both within the scene and adjacent enough to have eyes on the bigger picture. It’s a space Bagg’s held down for a long time now. In 2022 Moneybagg Yo will maintain his unbreakable hot streak and continue to immerse himself in various projects.
With “Rocky Road” at his back, Moneybagg Yo is all set to continue his trend of leveling up with each month. Watch the visuals for “Rocky Road” and stream it on all major platforms.
