Miami rapper Money Rod drops off his latest single “Money.” This single samples The O’Jay’s 1974 classic “For The Love of the Money.” When speaking about the single Rod say, “‘Money’ is the perfect introduction of me to the world. I’ve been called a money winner since I was a youngin’ so it’s only right that my first record be called Money.”
Directed by Lef of Silverspoon Films, this music video has that raw feel that Miami was known for in the 80’s. Where Money Rod exchanges his signature dreads and Givenchy drip, for a starch pressed suit and afro. Feeling as if we stepped into Netflix’s Narcos, this is what the city that Money Rod called home for his entire had the essence of. A city where cash and power were king, and nothing would get into the way of that.
In the coming months Money Rod will be releasing a full length project, titled Money Power Respect. The reasoning for this title Rod says, “These are three things [Money, Power, and Respect] that everyone coming from my background is fighting for.” Expect the world to catch on to the vision soon, as South Florida has been a breeding ground for a lot of artists as of recent, Money Rod being one of them.
