MoneyMarr unleashes his rhymes in high-energy torrents, running roughshod over instrumentals with his lockstep cadences. Taking steps to turn his meteoric rise into long-term gains, MoneyMarr announces Millionaire Mindset, his upcoming project.
“If you have a millionaire mindset, you’re always maintaining focus on improving your lifestyle until you become a millionaire,” explains MoneyMarr. “It’s like a Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ mindset. Like a Paid in Full mindset. That mindset. Hard on money.”
With a style that derives from the tumbling flows of his native DMV and the hard-edged attitude of the Dirty South, Marr raps with a polish and lyrical acuity that belies his 18 years, determined to prove that he has the mentality to use his gift to make a better life for his family and community. The project is home to recent single “Cut Like That,” a relentless slapper that showcases Marr’s escalating flexes. With production from Jetsonmade, Bankroll Got It, Yung Lan, and more, Millionaire Mindset arrives on December 18th via 1019 GS/EMPIRE.
“With Millionaire Mindset, people can definitely expect a different flow and a different vocabulary from my past releases,” says MoneyMarr. “And probably a different vibe, for sure. I won’t lie, all my old sh*t used to be trap sh*t. So this vibe right here is definitely gonna be different. It’s gonna bring a whole new mindset about me. People gonna think differently about me.”
To accompany the announcement of the project, MoneyMarr shares “War,” an intense, drill-influenced new anthem. Joining forces with Rah Swish, a Pop Smoke associate and Brooklyn drill expert, MoneyMarr readies for battle in “War,” scheming on ways to grow his bankroll and enjoy the spoils: “Every first of the month, I pull up on a stash.” In the video, directed by Wavylord, MoneyMarr and Rah Swish congregate with their associates in front of a powerful series of background images (including an image of The White House on fire and images from this year’s Black Lives Matter protests) as they flash their ice and offer a stern warning to anyone who would cross them.
Just 18-years-old, MoneyMarr is already one of the most notable names in a burgeoning DMV rap scene with four mixtapes under his belt. He drew attention with his 2018 tape Youngest Trappest, and especially its opening track “Whip Out The Stick,” which has over 2 million Spotify streams and 3.4 million YouTube views. The Southeast DC rapper has toured with G Herbo and has frequently sold out clubs as a headlining artist (including NY’s S.O.B.’s). Earlier this year, Marr dropped Exotic Habits, a 14-track tape with appearances from fellow DMV standouts XanMan and Black Fortune. Stay tuned for much more from this rising star, whose stylistic evolution is just beginning.
