ASAP Rocky recently confirmed that ASAP Yams’ first posthumous project, Cozy Tapes Vol. 1, was finished. While a release date hasn’t been revealed yet, we are one step closer to it dropping with Money Man, a short film that features two new songs from the tape: “Money Man” and “Put That on My Set.”
The 12-minute film is directed by AWGE, which is ASAP Rocky’s creative collective. It was shot over three days in Northwest London, according to Red Bull, and it stars ASAP Nast and Skepta. Saïd Taghmaoui also makes an appearance. He’s best known for his roles in the 1995 French film La Haine and the David O Russell movie Three Kings.
The film follows the story of Rina, who is the sister of Said aka “The Money Man,” a respected figure in the Butterfly Canal, which is place for people who have been “ostracized from the norm of society.” Said runs a club in the canal and sells a drug on the street that combines “scorpion venom, acrylic paint, even butterfly’s pollen.” Said is partners with Rocky (Money Man Flacko), where they feed the hunger of people who want a “psychedelic getaway to a better place.” As the film progresses, we learn more about Money Man Flacko and his relationship with Rina, and how their love blossoms in such a dangerous part of London.
