Money Up by YxngLion is a reflection on honest work ethics, and the determination of a person who finds and follows their passion. The song expresses the artist’s true dedication to his craft, his hard work, and his practical approach to life. Every morning, he wakes up with the enthusiasm to work hard and truly earn his money. Looking back can get him carried away – he’d rather learn from the past instead of wallowing in it.
YxngLion is a UK-based rapper who at only 18 years old has shed the vanity for real issues. His style of hip hop stands for empowerment, peace, working hard, and sways away from bling or big cars. He knows he is unconventional in this space, and he is not afraid to speak out. He addresses non-violence, social justice, and controversial topics in his music, all because he knew as a bullied 14-year-old that more like him couldn’t suffer. And this is why the artist identifies with the label of Conscious Rap.
A moody, broody electric guitar introduces us to Money Up. The synth hits and beats follow, and thats how you know this is a full on Hip-Hop number. The beats are a touch broody, and mostly classy thanks to the looping guitar strings. This sets up a mature soundscape for YxngLion to share his message with the song.
