Track is from forthcoming highly anticipated mixtape
Rapper Moneybagg Yo shares his latest track “Ocean Spray” via CMG/N-Less/Interscope Records. He blends his classic southern rap bravado with clever punchlines and raw personal admissions. The renowned heavy hitter gets straight to the point while previewing momentous themes expected to be discussed further on his upcoming mixtape, Hard To Love. He speaks candidly on loss, affliction, and the road to success despite adversity. In the video directed by long time collaborator, Ben Marc, he shares a glimpse at his reality while stunting in his signature dripped down yet playful style.
Prior to releasing the track, Bagg took to social media to share a heartfelt open letter to his fans. He addresses his absence, the love and loss he’s endured in the past two years, and conclusively, his highly anticipated mixtape, Hard To Love, set to release on Friday, June 2nd.
Hard To Love will be his first solo body of work since dropping 2021’s chart-topping A Gangsta’s Pain, which was the fourth highest selling rap album of 2021. The RIAA certified Platinum album. In addition to his album going No. 1 he also topped the radio charts four times consecutively with “Said Sum,” “Time Today,” “Wockesha,” and “Scorpio.”
While the full track listing is still under wraps, Hard to Love is spearheaded by the recently released single “On Wat U On,” which pairs him with North Memphis labelmate GloRilla, and last December’s mesmerizing “Quickie.” Prior to the string of singles, Bagg shared a collaboration with Yo Gotti, Mozzy, and Lil Poppa titled, “Big League.” The track was chosen as the official song of the 2022 NBA Finals and can be found on the CMG compilation Gangsta Art.
