Remix: Z Money – “Givenchy” ft. Ohgeesy (Prod. by DY of 808 Mafia)
The Chicago Native and 1017 Eskimo Signee Revisits a Chiraq Mogul Highlight with the Help of a Rising West Coaster
Critical Praise for ZMoney:
“Z’s appeal is all about swagger, a subtle brand of cocky humor, and a delicate musical touch. Which isn’t to say that it’s an empty exercise in style—although he has style in spades. There’s an unusual quality at the heart of the ZMoney project that’s elusive to define, but could be called, simply, ‘art.'” – Complex
“As one of the promising new faces to come out of Chicago, ZMoney is ready to go full speed ahead.” – XXL
“Even though the 25-year-old has work from as early as 2014, setbacks such as his legal troubles and incarceration had put his career on hold until now and, if it wasn’t already obvious, Z Money SZN is upon us.” – Lyrical Lemonade
Known for his unbreakable, sing-song cadence and his soft-spoken charisma, Z Money specializes in ice cold trap music. Counting his profits and showing off his favorite brand, Z Money struts his stuff in “Givenchy.” Produced by DY of 808 Mafia, “Givenchy” is a foreboding track, complete with crisp handclaps, bouncing bass, and droning synths, as Z Money recites the myriad ways he shines: “Balmain in my closet, bought the store, God damn, I need to stop it/Tiger Gucci sock, play like soccer, get hit with the mop stick.” For the remix, premiered today by XXL, Z Money recruits Ohgeesy, a member of rising L.A. crew ShorelineMafia, to offer up some offbeat similes: “Trap house got a drive-thru…it just like Wendy’s/Bitch, I always got my hoodie on…I’m just like Kenny/And I put on, I’m from the block…I’m just like Jenny.” “Givenchy” is a highlight from Chiraq Mogul, Z Money’s acclaimed new mixtape, shared in August.
The follow-up to the critically acclaimed ZTM, which boasted the Valee-featuring cult hit “Two 16s,” Chiraq Mogul is a more substantial effort, comprised of 16 intense tracks, each marked by Z Money’s oft-imitated cadences and canny punchlines about the hustle. The new mixtape hosts previously released tracks such as “Bon Appetit,” which features G Herbo and Key Glock and garnered over 3.55 million views on YouTube, the haunting and absorbing “Bitcoin” (362k), “Durag,” also featuring Key Glock, which has 387k views, and . Featuring an additional appearances fro G Herbo, along with an appearance from 03 Greedo, Chiraq Mogul, released via 1017 Eskimo/Alamo, continues Z Money’s rise from the ashes as he follows his mentor Gucci Maneon the path from underground success to mainstream figure. Most recently, Z Money shared “Apart of Trappin’,” a dizzying and spooky video premiered by The FADER in October.

First coming to the forefront during the Chicago rap boom of 2012, Z Money stood out from the pack for his creative cadences, his malleable, high-pitched flow, which drew comparisons to Z Money’s idol Gucci Mane, and his rejection of the conventions of the drill music that dominated the city in that era. Releasing a series of popular mixtapes packed with street witticisms and raw honesty, Z Money gained cult hero status in Chicago for songs like “Regular” and “Want My Money,” which Chance The Rapper used in his original trailer for his 2013 breakout mixtape Acid Rap. In 2014, Z Money’s meteoric rise came to an abrupt halt when he was forced to spend nearly the whole year in prison for a probation violation. After his release, Z Money rededicated himself to his craft, moving away from his Chicago-based problems and temptations to the rap mecca of Atlanta. In ATL, Z Money caught the ear of a recently free Gucci Mane, who signed him to his fledgling 1017 Eskimo label. Since the signing, Z Money gotten his career back on the road to stardom with ZTM and Chiraq Mogul.
