Money Man has said that due of his rigorous exercise and shooting regimen, he is a unique breed of rapper that doesn’t require any protection to keep him safe.
The former Cash Money signee said he formerly weighed more than 300 pounds in an interview with MONTREALITY where he discussed the value of eating a nutritious diet.
When asked how his life will be when he is in his 80s, he said, “Once I learned to eat right, I do that. I’m gonna make sure I’m physically training and I’m gonna make sure I’m rich as hell.”
“I was 340 pounds at one point — a bout 229, 230 now, so I lost 100 pounds over the years. Routine kinda makes perfection, so if you’re training for something and you do it every day, you’re gonna become elite at it.”
“So my routine is wake up, run 10 miles, then I go shoot for four or five hours. Then I go back to the crib and I record every day. So I try to keep that routine. I’ve turned down shows just to keep my routine going.
“I don’t like having security, like grown men having to secure me, so I’m gonna make sure I’m on point at all times. I work on my senses, all kinda shit like that.”
Money Man released videos of him working out on the treadmill for over nine miles and practicing his shooting aim on Twitter to quell any doubters who could have expressed skepticism about his claims.
“Daily routine,” he captioned the footage, while adding in separate tweets: “Shit ain’t no secret big money at da range 4 hrs a day ifykyk … No talking just show and prove.”
This is not the first time Money Man has distinguished himself as a unique rapper. The Atlanta-born, New York-raised rapper made history in 2021 when his label, EMPIRE, gave him the first advance paid entirely in Bitcoin.
After that, Money Man released Blockchain, a compilation of all things crypto-related that included contributions from Moneybagg Yo, Jackboy, and BLEU.
Even Meek Mill was motivated to emulate Money Man’s ground-breaking business strategies. Meek posted a screenshot of the $1,002,912 advance Money Man had gotten at the time alongside the message, “Ima get my next record deal paid in bitcoin behind @moneyman.”
Money Man rapped on the song “Sweetie,” “Skinny bitch inside my DMs, she remind me of GloRilla/ I had drew down on a fan, but he only wanted a picture.”
Big Glo expressed her disdain of the lyrics on Twitter after learning about them and pleaded with her followers to help her track down the author of the offensive rhymes.
A follower commented, “Skinny bihh in my DM, she reminds me of GloRilla,” which prompted the “F.N.F.” hitmaker to respond: “Hey guys, what song is this??????????? I hate it.”
