Moneybagg Yo came to dominate the summer. The Memphis rapper had fans on their toes over the past few weeks. Although he intended to drop the project last week, he had a change of plans due to the release of Taylor Swift’s Midnights (The Til Dawn Edition). Fans had to wait another week but finally, he came through on Friday (June 2nd) morning with Hard To Love: Heartless Edition. The rapper returns to his roots, delivering another installment in his celebrated mixtape series. 

The latest opus from Moneybagg Yo boasts an impressive 20 songs in total. Although he holds down a large part of the project on his own, he brings on a list of stellar collaborators on the journey. Future, who he collaborated with on “Hard For The Next,” joins him on “Keep It Low.” Lil Durk joins Bagg and YTB FATT on “Rock Out,” while GloRIlla comes through on the previously released single, “On Wat U On.” YTB FATT, who joined Moneybagg Yo’s Bread Gang Ent in recent months, also appears on “Shot Off Gumbo,” alongside Fat Wizza, which dropped in March.
