With his soft, restrained delivery, Atlanta-based rapper Money Man tells straightforward tales about hustling and street life over trap beats. Preferring to go the independent route rather than sign with a major label, he has remained in control of his career, issuing numerous mixtapes and achieving chart success with 2019's Paranoia.
Born in New York City but raised in Decatur, Georgia, Money Man attempted to break into the rap industry during the early 2010s but paused for a few years in order to focus on his finances. In 2016, he came back in a major way, releasing three Black Circle mixtapes featuring guest appearances from Young Thug, Akon, Gucci Mane, and others, earning the rapper a significant following. The following year, he delivered two more mixtapes with Secret Society and 24 Hours. 2018 proved to be Money Man's most prolific year yet, with the release of five more mixtapes including Grow God, 6 Hours (Pts. 1 & 2), and TraumaMan, as well as the Winter EP. In 2019, Money Man released the expansive 25-track full-length Paranoia, which reached the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 album chart. ~ Paul Simpson
