Moneybagg Yo is making new resolutions for 2022, the first of which is to stop drinking. Yo charges up to $200,000 an event and $100,000 per verse. A Gangsta’s Pain, his 2021 album, sold over 1.1 million copies, making it the 16th best-selling album of the year. Yo is now excited to start his own water brand.
Moneybagg Yo’s hustling isn’t limited to music. Moneybagg is planning to start his own water brand, similar to 50 Cent. He’s expecting that the company would help him attain the type of nine-figure number that the G-Unit rapper made in the industry over a decade ago.
On Monday, January 17, the “Wockesha” rapper teased the launch of his bottled water firm, Vior Water, through Instagram Stories, showcasing footage of the bottles moving through the assembly line. In typical salesman form, he made a strong statement about his brand.
“100 million mood @viorwater. Send me ya address I’ll send ya a case and put ya down I’m telling u now this the best water in America.”
50 Cent notably joined the beverage sector in 2004, collaborating with Glacéau, the creators of VitaminWater to create Formula 50, an improved water drink, while also becoming a minority partner in the firm. When Coca-Cola paid $4.1 billion for Glacéau in 2007, 50 received a cool $100 million as part of the deal.
In order to replicate the platinum-certified success of A Gangsta’s Pain, he has also revealed that a new album will be released in March. Let’s see whether he can make his goal a reality with his new water brand. For further updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
