Moneybagg Yo Used To Charge $750 For A Verse — Now It Costs Six Figures
Moneybagg Yo is having a great year thanks to his No. 1 album A Gangsta’s Pain. Moneybagg’s project went No. 1 on two different occasions, and it’s currently the highest-selling Hip Hop album of 2021. With all that success comes a significant jump in popularity where everyone wants a piece of the pie.
On Sunday (September 5), Moneybagg Yo hit up his Instagram to reveal how much he’s charging people who want a guest feature from him. In the picture shared on his Instagram Story, Moneybagg reposted an old conversation another rapper was having with someone from his team asking for his services.
The rapper asked how much a feature was, and the representative said $750 but lowered it to $550 after some negotiation. Someone had reposted that conversation with a caption that revealed Moneybagg now charges $100,000 for a feature.
Moneybagg used the clip as a way to reflect on how far he’s come, especially with that price tag on features now.
“I Swear I Use To Get $750 For A Feature Now Look, Dets A whole Nother Conversation,” Moneybagg wrote in his caption.
In April, the “Wockesha” rapper told TMZ he’s charging a hefty $200,000 per show following the release of A Gangsta’s Pain that month. He also said his show rate was just $2,500 a year ago and believed he could get that number up to around $500,000.
Moneybagg Yo is even catching the attention of some legends in the Hip Hop industry. The CMG rap star recently linked up with Snoop Dogg for an impromptu chill session in the late hours of the night. Footage of the link-up was shared online, where both men complimented each other for their accomplishments.
“I got the pleasure of being with the hottest n-gga in the game right now,” Snoop said before Moneybagg returned the compliment and said he’s thankful for being able to hang with a legend.
