In a new digital cover story with HotNewHipHop, Moneybagg Yo talked about he regrets dropping his collab with J. Cole so early. 

“I wish I would’ve waited on the J. Cole feature I had,” he said. “I feel like it would’ve been— it would’ve impacted differently. I feel like that. There’s a few more, my whole Heartless album that I did, I feel like it would be the perfect timing.”

Moneybagg Yo dropped “Say Na” featuring Cole back in 2018, and his project Heartless in 2017. Continuing to reflect, Moneybagg explained that he feels there are several songs in his catalog that he wished he was more patient about and held until now.

“It’s so many good songs and so much good music I made in the past that I put out that I wish I would’ve had at this time right now,” said MoneyBagg Yo. “I feel like this is the time to be alive. This is the most important time in my life right now. It’s going too crazy, right now. A lot of that stuff got overlooked. Like, I be rapping some hard bars— like, even with my girl. I be rapping some old hard bars and she’s like, ‘This out? Is this out? When are you putting it out? You need to put that out.’ I’m like, this is already out. This, like, years old. That helps me understand that if I would have been patient and not trying to put all this music out because it’ll help me get to the next level fast.”

Moneybagg also revealed that he has been working with Future in the studio trying to perfect new music with him. In terms of his upcoming album, he said that he has been working on new music with Polo G and Lil Durk.

“Me, Polo G and Durk. It’s a song called ‘Free Promo’ on my album,” he explained. “It’s crazy, I tapped into the melody side on that one too. So that’s the pain side.”

Moneybagg added that he has some collaboration efforts with another hip-hop heavy-hitter, Lil Baby.

“I feel that the fans should be a little more patient, maybe it’ll happen, maybe it won’t, like you said, we got a great track record of songs together so if I feel like we continue to do that— We’ll just keep putting out good songs together,” he said.
