Moneybagg Yo Hits The 2021 BET Award Stage To Perform ‘Wokesha’ And ‘Time Today’Moneybagg Yo Hits The 2021 BET Award Stage To Perform ‘Wokesha’ And ‘Time Today’

After years of mixtape releases that eventually put the Memphis native on a pedestal high enough to drop official albums, Moneybagg Yo is arguably having the best year of his career. It’s in large part due to the success of his fourth album, A Gangsta’s Pain. The positive reception of that album and its song helped land Moneybagg a spot in this year’s lineup of BET Award show performers. He graced the stage with a brief performance of “Wokesha” before transitioning into a laid-back rendition of “Time Today.”

His set comes weeks after A Gangsta’s Pain became the first No. 1 album of his career at the beginning of May. Two weeks later, the album reclaimed the top spot on the albums chart, making it one of a few albums to do so on the Billboard 200 this year. The album’s success can be credited to it’s post-release promotional run as the rapper shared several videos for tracks like “A Gangsta’s Pain” and “Free Promo.”

On a more recent note, Moneybagg Yo dropped “Rookie Of The Year” in support of Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant’s film, Promiseland. The rapper also joined Belly in a video for their “Zero Love” collaboration. Moneybagg will also headline the 2021 Brocolli City festival with Lil Baby later this year.
