On Weekend Money’s Freddie Merkury project, “Break Spinal” was just a 48-second interlude. It was a tease, but today they give it the attention it deserves—the track has been extended with a little help from Well$ and Kool A.D. With a spacious beat and sedated deliveries, this is a chill affair, but thanks to revamped production from Baghdaddy, it still bangs.

Weekend Money will be playing The Studio at Webster Hall tonight. It’s the last show they’ll play this year, before heading out on their first international tour in Australia. - Pigeons and Planes


Trapping can be way less glamorous than you might think. Sure, there's a chance that you'll make a shitload of money and live your life as a modern day outlaw. But much like any interesting job, a lot of fucking footwork is involved. Delivering shit, bagging up your goods, coordinating with suppliers: There's a lot of organization and foresight needed to run a successful business. And ultimately, as Weekend Money's Ne$$ says on "Trapper Keeper," there's always the threat of the FBI "catching feelings."

"Trapper Keeper" finds Weekend Money teaming up with Houston's Fat Tony to explore these dilemmas over Baghdaddy and Hot Sugar's beat, which is the perfect background for a song about trying to chill out while on your grind. In the video, we follow the guys as they make the rounds throughout the neighborhood and drop some pretty nice bars. Later in the video, there's a party with a bunch of cool dudes and chicks held in their honor, but it doesn't last for long. They get a call, and it's back to work again. It doesn't matter what the profession is, leaving a dope party for your job sucks ass 100 percent of the time.

Check out the video above, and make sure to catch Weekend Money throw down this Saturday at their CMJ showcase at The Flat. - Noisey / Vice

"Video: Weekend Money f/ Heems "Yellow""

Weekend Money drops their latest video for "Yellow" featuring Heems today. The video, directed by Maya Margolina, has appearances from the ATL Twins, Jimmy McMillan, Fat Tony, Hot Sugar and more.

Wth Baghdaddy production and an infectious chorus that literally just loops "Yellow" chopped, the song is just really fucking fun.

"Yellow the song is about a night out in the city, bouncing around in cabs, ducking police, etc....the video is basically a wild taxi cab confession style version of that," Ne$$ of Weekend Money said.

Weekend Money have a knack for making music that reflects the sort of grimy fun you can have cruising the streets of New York City. In the video for new single “Yellow,” the duo and director Maya Margolina capture the chaos and action potential of the most amazing New York nights, with a bevy of beautiful women, overflowing alcohol, and a colorful cast of characters including local legends (Jimmy McMillan of “The Rent is Too Damn High!” fame, Dan Smith, legendary New York guitar teacher) and friends (Fat Tony, Hot Sugar, the ATL Twins, and, of course, Heems, among others). Weekend Money emcee Ne$$ and Heems get reckless over Baghdaddy’s bouncy, skeletal production (you can hear the wind cry “Lumidee” in the distance–no complaints here), completing the raucous puzzle. - http://pigeonsandplanes.com/


Last year, I saw Weekend Money perform at some 285 Kent showcase (~Rest in Peace~) and they have this really fucking catchy song called "Coke'n'Coffee" which I embarassingly danced and screamed along to when they performed it live. After that, I became pretty obsessed with them, and went to see them in concert a lot more.

Since then, they've gone on to release more and more singles, and their latest one "Clockinworkin'" is pretty great. The track—obviously a flip on "Rock Around The Clock"—has thankfully got some crazy visuals paired up with itt, which we're premiering today. Weekend Money says they shot the video to be reminiscent of a Diddy and Ma$e video from the '90s. It's like their very own "All About The Benjamins" video. And there are plenty of cameos from Heems, Lakutis, Awkwafina, Kassa Overall, Tecla, Nick Gazin, Space Jesus, DVS, Donwill and more.

The video was directed and edited by Zach Isaac. In addition to the music video, we also have the album art and tracklist for their upcoming project, Freddie Merkury, which drops Feb. 4.

"Weekend Money: Born Rich, Die Richer (Interview)"

Who is Weekend Money? I can tell you but that would defeat the purpose of this interview. Besides, they can talk about themselves better than I ever can. But I will tell you how I came across the eclectic hip hop duo. I first heard of Weekend Money back in summer of 2013. I can’t pinpoint when exactly but one day, while I was at Governors Ball, I saw someone wearing a “W$” hat and I realized I was slackin’ and really needed to check these guys out. I went home, Googled and downloaded their EP, “Naked City,” a dope nine track effort. Track 3, “COKE’n'COFFEE” was my ish. Then I came across the next song which blew my mind. The track was called “Yellow” featuring Heems (formerly of Das Racist), and boy was it a banger. From the amped production to the lyrical prowess of Ness and Heems, the song had club hit written all over it. The Brooklyn-based group reached out to friends ATL Twins, Hot Sugar, Fat Tony, Jimmy McMillan, and Dan Smith to create a very entertaining music video for the track, and the rest is history. Not long ago, W$ dropped their debut LP, “Freddie Merkury” and we had a chance to sit down and pick their brains a little. - URB Magazine

Naked City EP
Freddie Merkury LP



Since the release of their last full length project, the critically acclaimed Freddie Merkury lp, Weekend Money members NE$$ & Bagh have been all over the place, literally and figuratively. Collectively they've toured throughout Australia, Asia, and the States, dropped a few singles including the underground burner Sriracha featuring rising stars Awkwafina & Rekstizzy, the dark & druggy Painkiller, and the remix to fan favorite Break Spinal from the Freddy Merkury project featuring Charlotte, NC MC WELL$ & former Das Racist MC Kool A.D.  

Individually both have been hella busy outside the confines of the W$ brand with NE$$ working on an upcoming solo project entitled citytrynaswallowme along with opening up an art gallery in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn earlier this year appropriately named World Money Gallery, while Bagh has been crafting an upcoming solo instrumental project where he dives head first into the future of the digital world and effectively creates what he calls "a 3D musical experience", learning code and at the same time producing tracks as a member of a SonyBMG beat collective making beats for some of the biggest names in pop. 
   In the midst of those endeavors and the usual craziness that comes with being independent creatives hustling and surviving in Brooklyn, the trailblazing duo was steadily at work (losing their minds) in their infamous DUMBO, Brooklyn headquarters and recording studio Brickhaus, experimenting with sounds, concepts and production techniques putting pieces together for their latest opus entitled Death of Pablo; an album conceived during a poolside convo in Bali, Indonesia while on tour in 2015.  

An appropriation of Kanye West's album title "The Life of Pablo" released earlier this year that initially started as a joke between NE$$ and Vice Art Editor Nick Gazin during the installing of his solo art exhibition "Hello Bad Mind" at World Money Gallery in June, the D.O.P. LP wrestles with 3 major themes, "mortality, indulgence & idol worship" says NE$$.
     The first single off the project 'Keys 2 The Gates', a murky neo-trap banger, is an introduction into a world where things aren't what they seem and as NE$$ raps in the song's opening verse "everybody's a rapper, an actor, a model or some kinda artist." 
Once again using New York City prominently as not only the backdrop but a central character in their narrative, Weekend Money bring us into a world halfway to heaven, halfway to hell, all the while following the money trail all the way up.  

Keys 2 The Gates is available now on iTunesAmazon, and all major outlets  

Weekend Money, conceived in a Brooklyn basement early 2012, is made up by Iraqi producer Baghdaddy, and super hustler/emcee NE$$. Since forming the duo has taken the underground Brooklyn scene by hostage. As cult leaders of the new Brooklyn wave, the two have collaborated with new wave tastemakers Kitty Pryde, Heems, Hot Sugar, Fat Tony, Lakutis, Le1f, Antwon and are leading the revolution, blending cultural influences and aesthetics stretching from Iraq, north Philly, Bed Stuy, to Williamsburg.
