CHEWING ON BEST NEW ARTISTS: MONEYBAGG YO

We continue our snack-sized review of some top contenders for the BNA Grammy with Moneybagg Yo.

The Memphis-bred rapper has been around for a while, but if Grammy is serious about “coming to prominence” as a criterion, he belongs on this list—he’s never been submitted before. Moneybagg’s A Gangsta’s Pain, which enjoyed a #1 debut, felt like a true arrival. Expanding his street-savvy sonic and stylistic formula, the CMG/Interscope artist incorporated R&B elements and demonstrated a powerful new focus.
