Moneybagg Yo has responded after a woman claimed he was throwing fake money at a recent concert, and said there’s no way he would do such a thing.
The Memphis rapper performed in St. Louis, Missouri as part of his Larger Than Life Tour last week, and the mother of a young concertgoer took to Instagram to accuse Moneybagg of showering the crowd with fake cash.
“Real quick story time,” the woman began. “My son went to his first concert tonight. Moneybagg came to St. Louis. So I brought my son to his first concert, spent $500 … And y’all won’t believe this.”She then turned the camera on her son while holding numerous fake bills in her hand which clearly read “copy” on the right side.
“Look at this! They in there throwing fake money. Got my son all excited and they’re in there throwing fake money,” she continued, bursting out laughing. “Y’all, I can’t make this shit up.”
Moneybagg Yo was quick to respond, taking to his Instagram Story on Sunday (August 27) to call cap on the whole situation.
“Y’all just wanna say my name for anything I see,” he wrote. “I might throw ones but ion care how much money I got I’m not throwing out real or fake hunnids. Wrong Man shit big Capp!!”
The debacle comes shortly after Moneybagg Yo was forced to cancel his show in Detroit at the Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre due to over-capacity, with local fire marshalls stepping in to shut down the performance.
The packed concert came in stark contrast to the news that Bagg was forced to cancel a string of upcoming shows supposedly due to low ticket sales. Ticketholders in Orlando and Philadelphia were notified earlier this month that the Memphis native had called off scheduled performances in their cities.
Floridian fans were particularly upset considering the Larger Than Life Tour stop was scheduled to take place the same day they received the news of its cancellation.
Moneybagg Yo’s tour is in support of his latest album Hard To Love, which debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard 200, earning 51,000 album-equivalent units in its first week. The album features appearances from Future, Fridayy, Lil Durk, GloRilla and others.
