The Memphis native has been on a roll as his latest caps off his 11th album to chart within the top 25 of Billboard. The singles of the album are also performing well, with “Time Today” at the No. 37 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
While celebrating the success of his latest project, Moneybagg Yo asked fans for prayers after revealing that his mother contracted covid-19 and pneumonia. Fans rally over the weekend to send the Memphis rapper and his family a lot of prayers. Thankfully he later shared that she was doing much better.
