Miami rising Money Rod has quickly rose to prominence with breakout hits “Saucey On Me” and “Better Part.” Today, he lives up to his name with the release of the new money-motived single “Money.” Sampling 1974 The O’Jay’s classic, “For The Love of the Money,” Rod delivers a braggadocious flow about getting to the bag and what he is about to bring to the game.
“‘Money’ is the perfect introduction of me to the world,” Money Rod says in a press release. “I’ve been called a money winner since I was a youngin’ so it’s only right that my first record be called Money.”
The new song plays into Money Rod’s forthcoming project, properly titled, Money Power Respect. The album is his formal introduction to a mainstream audience following his rising popularity. “These are three things [Money, Power, and Respect] that everyone coming from my background is fighting for.”

ABOUT MONEY ROD
Money Rod was born and raised in Miami, Florida and was drawn to music at a young age. Growing up Money Rod’s mom was one of his biggest motivations.
He admired her strength as he watched her survive and prevail in the midst of poverty, domestic struggles, and being a mom through it all. Her will to keep pressing forward motivated Money Rod to find his own way to impact and take care of others. Writing lyrics and creating music became an outlet from life’s darkest moments. Money Rod lost his Godbrother, who was one of his best friends, tragically a few years ago. This loss triggered a deeper grind in his artistry.
Money Rod’s hustler’s mentality was inspired by Miami native Trick Daddy and other legendary artists like 2Pac, Master P, and Jay Z; so in 2007, he made a decision to pursue his rap career full time. He’s studied under some of the industry’s greatest business minds, polished his sound, and now is ready to put everything into play on the world’s stage.
MONEY, POWER, RESPECT is the title of Money Rod’s upcoming project. It paints a picture of Money Rod’s life… past, present, and all of the greatness that’s expected in the future. He grew up fast and has experienced life in unique ways. He vows to always use these stories as motivation through his music. Stay tuned for more talks of money, power, and respect with Money Rod.
