Moneybagg Yo has been balling out during the pandemic, and despite the fact over 400,000 people have lost their lives from COVID-19 – he doesn’t want the lockdown to end.
Failing to read the room as he took to Twitter on Monday morning (February 15), the “Said Sum” rapper revealed how much he raked in over the last 11 months in lockdown and expressed his belief that a lot of people benefited from the unprecedented time.
“Not gone lie I made a couple Ms in da pandemic, ion want it to end,” he wrote. “I feel like the pandemic help a lot of people.”
Unsurprisingly, that didn’t go over well at all – and Moneybagg quickly returned to the social platform to issue an apology.
“I apologize to everybody I offended my comment was very insensitive it was not my intent to hurt anyone,” he said.
The Memphis native has definitely flaunted his wealth throughout the quarantine, lavishing girlfriend Ari Fletcher with gifts and trips and even a diamond ring for Christmas. For her birthday in July, he copped her a custom Lamborghini Uru. The whips have a starting price of $218,000.
He’s also been able to continue making appearances throughout the lockdown, performing in clubs down South that have managed to stay open while most parts of the country are closed and major companies like Live Nation have put a stop to touring. During Super Bowl weekend earlier this month in Tampa, he headlined a concert with no social distancing and limited masks.
Not everyone is so lucky, however. The unemployment rate in America reached a staggering 14.7 percent during the first full month of the pandemic in April 2020 and though the number has since slowly started to decline, unemployment rates were still significantly higher for December 2020 than they were the year prior.
