Putting in work has been a message that I’ve preached for years, Ironic that's the hit single from the Cleveland artist Q Money. The artist got his rise to fame from Instagram, he was pretty lit on social media which increased his social clout. The rapper wanted it to be known that he is not a typical Instagram celebrity, he is not comedian turned rapper, he just a thorough street guy with a great personality that loves to have a good time.
He explains him dancing on social media is just a marketing strategy, he puts his song in the videos to help with exposure. His #QmoneyChallenge went viral. He had artist like Meek Mill reposting.
In conversation, we talk about him beating a drug case, which he was set up by what he thought was a loyal customer. He had left the drug game for a minute, this was his return and ended up getting caught. He facing was 3 year, but ended up serving 3 months.
He gives us insight on how he feels Chicago hip-hop influences those in Ohio and others. "When we use to trap, all we listened to was lil durk". He talks how the Drill wave is responsible for artist such as Tay K. His views are accurate, and not to be a biased journalist. I agree that the wave of Chief Keef, Lil Durk, and others has major influences on the rappers today.
Q Money might be different he has a more fun vibe, he has his own style, I can sense a little Atlanta in his music, but he resides in the south currently it's only right that the Trap influences are put to use.
Q Money provides great vibes, and I'm wishing him much success in his career. In the meantime sit back and watch him WORK.
