Moneybagg Yo is breaking up with Wockesha.
The Memphis rapper has announced that he’s sober and done with lean going into the new year. Taking to Twitter, he admitted that he thought sobriety would interfere with his creativity, but it has only made him feel better.
“I use to think being sober would f**k wit my creative process, I see dats just a mind thing cuz I been more active skin glowing and I been dropping nun but pressure,” he tweeted, while adding the hashtag #NomoWockesha.
Moneybagg famously rapped about his addiction to lean, a mixture of codeine and ingredients such as soda and candy, on his hit “Wockesha” off his album A Gangsta’s Pain.
“One minute I’m done with you, the next one I be runnin’ back,” he raps. “Go your way, I go my way but somehow we be still attached / Tryna find my answers with this cup, but ain’t no truth in that.”
His sobriety is part of his effort to become a better version of himself. “God working on me,” he added.
In September, Moneybagg dropped a remix to “Wockesha” featuring Lil Wayne and Ashanti. He recently seemed to indicate that he would be down to collaborate with Morgan Wallen after the controversial country singer said that Moneybagg was among his favorite artists.
“I do love Moneybagg… He’s definitely at the top of the list,” Wallen said during a Clubhouse chat. “Honestly, my top stuff on Spotify was all hip-hop. … Moneybagg is probably my favorite.”
