In a recent post to his Instagram Story, Moneybagg Yo reflected on going from charging just $750 for a guest feature from him, to over $100k. He shared a screenshot of an old DM conversation between his manager and another rapper who asked for a verse. “How much Moneybagg Yo charge for feature?” the rapper wrote. “He want 750 tryna talk em down 4 ya,” Moneybagg’s manager replied, before revealing that he’d also accept $550 for the verse.
“I swear I use to get $750 for a feature now look, dets a whole nother conversation,” Moneybagg wrote alongside the image. In the same post, the rapper’s manager added that he now charges at least $100k for a feature these days. The 29-year-old rapper has been releasing music as far back as 2012, but A Gangsta’s Pain is the first time he hit the top of the charts.
Moneybagg Yo’s A Gangsta’s Pain debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart when it was released back in May. According to Billboard, it’s the 13th highest-performing album of the year, trailing behind the likes of Lil Baby, Lil Durk, and Olivia Rodrigo among others.
