With an ever-expanding bankroll and a penchant for intoxicating street rap, Z Money is an ideal 21st-century businessman. Chronicling his life as a hall-of-fame-level hustler, Z Money announces Shawty Paid, his upcoming mixtape. Additionally, he’ll be dropping the first song from the tape, “Shawty Paid Intro” on Friday to give fans a quick deposit.
On “Shawty Paid Intro,” Z Money rocks his trademark cadence atop dark 8-bit synths and skull-rattling bass, drawing attention to his expensive taste, listing his financial accomplishments, and clowning those whose bankrolls can’t compare. “Shawty Paid Intro” is an appropriate table-setter for the upcoming project, setting an extravagant and celebratory tone for the project.
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 “Wealthy”, with additional guest appearances from Key Glock and Yung Mal, Shawty Paid arrives on May 10th via 1017 Eskimo/Alamo.
