Moneybagg Yo and Young Thug get a little ironic in their new video. This past Monday (June 18), the two down-South artists dropped off a new visual for “Mandatory Drug Test,” a cut from Moneybagg’s Fed Baby’s mixtape with Youngboy Never Broke Again. In the new clip, which is directed by Joe Yung Spike, the two artists hit up a grow-op as they enjoy a day in the sun.
As you can tell by the video, and the lyrics for the song itself, Moneybagg and Thugger aren’t exactly sweating a drug test. “Crack the seal it’s potent, you can smell when it’s medical/I doubled the cup to let you know I ain’t drinking nothing regular/I keep a couple shots in case you get foul and technical/I’m free as a bird but somehow I’m still going federal,” Moneybagg spits in the first verse on the track.
Getting back to the video, Moneybagg looks like he’s having a really fun time. Throughout the visual, we see the rapper cruising around in an old school whip with a baddie as he smokes on some strong. When he’s not doing that, he’s kicking it with Thugger or hanging out in the grow-op.
Reaching more than 700,000 views in just two days, Moneybagg’s latest video is just another sign that he’s doing huge things in 2018. Speaking with XXL earlier this year, the Memphis rapper said he was actually surprised by his success.
“I didn’t think I’d be this big, I ain’t gon’ lie,” Moneybagg explained. “When I first started rapping, I was just doing it for the hood to notice me—the hood fame—just to get people’s attention around the city, to make me a little show money. But then music became my passion, it got real serious.”
