The frequent collaborators announced the track on social media Thursday night, ahead of 2 Chainz's much-anticipated Verzuz battle against Rick Ross. As part of the broadcast, Tity Boi gave viewers an early taste of "Money Maker," which paid tribute to HBCU band culture and samples Southern University's marching band Human Jukebox. The cover art for the single also features a photo of the band in action.
After dropping "Money Maker," Chainz linked with Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning hosts to chat about his Verzuz battle, future battles he'd like to see, his new single, and more. He also reiterated that the second installment of ColleGrove will be out this year.
2 Chainz spoke about his chemistry with Wayne during a Revolt TV interview in 2018.
"I think we're both very competitive," he said. "He is one of my most favorite rappers ever in the game. I learned a lot from him, period. It's always a battle, man. Any time we're together, I'm like, I'm trying to come up with a hook or he's gonna keep rappin' all night. It's like, man, let's just go to something else! But that's the fun part. It's like rap calisthenics. It keeps you sharp. Steel on steel. We respect each other. That's first. We always have, over 15 years of friendship. So we ain't going nowhere. No matter what's going on in our lives, we gon' be there for each other. That's just what's happening. That's my bro."
