“At his best, the stalwart Memphis rapper excels at heart-on-sleeve, bluesy songwriting, and his new album shows him deepening and opening up.” – Pitchfork
Rising Memphis rap star, DeMario DeWayne White Jr. from Memphis, Tennessee, is Moneybagg Yo. He had a long series of mixtapes, but it wasn’t until his two projects, Federal 3X, and, 2 Heartless, both debut in the Top 20, coming in at number 5 and number 16 on the Billboard 200, respectively, that he really broke into the mainstream. His third album, Time Served, debuted at number 3 on the Billboard 200 in January 2020, and now, for your listening pleasure, his fourth studio album, A Gangsta's Pain, became his first chart-topping project. Debuting at number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in May 2021, dropping to the number 2 spot on the following week and then back up to number 1 in week 3, in total earning a whopping 241, 000 equivalent album sales, in the weeks since it has been certified 5x Gold. In this new album, he delivers the same familiar quality rap fans have come to expect with, in Moneybagg style, a twist of illuminating introspection, it may be more mainstream than we are used to, but I think it's time he got his due.
