The Cruz Show has hit the Reset button with Moneybagg Yo for his release of his debut studio album which dropped today, November 2.
Moneybagg Yo checks in at the Power 106 Perrier® & Juice Studios to talk about his new album Reset and what it was like to work along side J.Cole, Yg, Future, Kodak Black & more for the project. With the project heavy in feature guest appearances, Moneybagg explains that the decision for his album to recruit the likes of Fututre, Black, and more was a time to expand his fanbase. Speaking on how the collab with Cole came about, the Memphis rapper told the morning crew:
We was just in the right place at the right time. He was just telling me like, when I bumped into him in the studio, he was telling me he was a fan of me, and of course I’m a fan of him. So I was just like, “This my first debut album, I need you on it.” I didn’t even think he was going to get on it for real. So, I had went in the room and he was like three-four minutes behind me and he came in and he was like, “Pull something up.” I had pulled something that I could hear him on, he was like, I don’t want to get on it, I want to come into your world.” So, I got the trap J. Cole.
With the support coming in a bit stronger this time around for his debut, the ‘Reset’ emcee expresses what it feels like to have a major machine behind his project’s promotion and details what it means having a billboard in New York City. “It’s a good feeling,” he states. “ I just feel like it’s time for that big push. I need that.” Yo continues reflecting on the billboard saying, “I aint never had that big push like that. Nobody ain’t never seen me with the real machine behind me. “
Moneybagg also speaks on the upcoming talent that is coming up from his hometown, how he blew most of his money when he first got into the game and even admits that he’d pay to see a Cardi B and Nicki Minaj fight.
