Money Man is living his best life in new track “Money Man Perry”

Money Man Delivers His Latest Track “Money Man Perry”

Money Man lives his best life on his latest track.

Money Man hasn’t been slacking in the past year or so. In fact, ever since he got out of his contract with Cash Money, his fans have been benefitting a lot more. The rapper’s been pumping out new music for his fans over the past year including several projects and loose singles. In recent times, he’s been dropping off short freestyles — demo-like tracks — that haven’t necessarily made their way onto streaming services yet. However, he’s returned with his latest single titled, “Money Man Perry.” Money Man is back to flex on everyone with his latest drop. The rapper’s new single finds him flexing his auto-tuned laden voice over a soulful, trap beat. It follows the release of his track, “The Realist Shit I Never Wrote” as well as his recent collaboration with Yella Beezy on DJ Luke Nasty’s song, “Baller.”

The track is pulled from the the long-awaited full length project Paranoia. The rapper’s dished out a ton of singles off of the project for the past few weeks including “Way It Is,” “Money Man Perry,” and “ATM.”  Paranoia has 25 tracks with a running time over an hour and two minutes. Although he holds down the entirety of the project on his own, he recruits Guap Tarantino, Young Mal, and Lil Gotit for some assistance.

The Atlanta rapper first made a splash on the mixtape circuit back in 2016 with his Black Circle series, with his most notable song being “How It Feel,” yet Money Man moves like someone who’s a 10-year vet in the industry. After catching his buzz, Money Man signed with Cash Money Records in 2017 but eventually found it not conducive to how he wanted to go about his career. So the then-new rapper with a shiny new record deal, put up $250,000 to get out of that contract.

Money Man said Cash Money’s decision to remove his music from all streaming platforms was the “one of the final nails in the coffin” when it came to parting ways with the label. “I just left because my [signing] wasn’t helping me. It wasn’t bettering my situation. Whatever I felt like they could do at the time, I could do myself. When they took my music down from streaming platforms, that was one of the final nails in the coffin because I was like ‘I gotta go ahead and get myself out of this situation before it messes up my income.’ So I went ahead and rectified them and got everything back up and running.

“But I was already planning on leaving, about four, five months in. I just felt like being independent at the time because it was like, I might as well. I was already winning independently. But now, if they come with a lot of money we can work something out. As long as the paperwork look good. A lot of people worry about that later.”
In an August 2018 interview with Pitchfork, Money Man-who releases music exclusively via digital distribution services like Tunecore and YouTube-said he enjoys the flexibility of being an indie artist vs. being signed to a major record label. “If I record the song right now, I can drop it on YouTube right now, and I’m going to get paid for it,” he said. “I got an in-house mixer. If he takes too long, I just put it out rough, so people can feel the realness of the song.”

Money Man says rap is far from an endpoint for him, and he’s just getting started with his dream of one day becoming a billionaire like Jay-Z. “I look at rap as a doorway to becoming a billionaire,” he told Pitchfork. “It attracts different types of people for me to do business with, find out new things. It’s like holding a key right now.”
