Moneybagg Yo Proves He’s the Real Michael Myers
Moneybagg Yo has made his affinity for the fictional horror slasher Michael Myers clear, as evident in his gaudy diamond charm created in the likeness of the iconic horror movie character who is the focus of the Halloween film franchise. But what happens when the two meet up? That's a question XXL brought to life in a hilarious new video that debuted earlier today (Oct. 30).
With Halloween on the horizon, Michael Myers is out looking for his next victim. Apparently, he found his way to corporate America where he posted up in an office building in an attempt to take some people out. Luckily, Moneybagg Yo was able to come through and save the day, defiantly claiming himself to be the real Michael Myers.
While Moneybagg and the seemingly un-killable character eventually made peace—they end up playing some Xbox—the Memphis rapper puts Myers' mortality to the test before they settle their differences.
"You can't just go around killing people," Moneybagg tells Myers. "That's why your ass ain't got no friends now."
Moneybagg Yo is currently prepping the release of his debut album, Reset, which drops on Nov. 2. The LP will have 15 tracks and feature J. Cole, Kodak Black, Future and Jeremih, among others. He recently chopped it up with XXL about how he was able to land a track with Cole, who does not do a lot of feature work.
"[Cole] was on tour, we was in L.A., and he told me he wasn't supposed to have even been at the studio to that day," Moneybagg said. "But his homeboy ended up calling him to the studio. So he get to the studio, I'm coming out the hallway, we bump into each other. So I'm like, 'Yo, I'm working on my first album. It'll be good to have you a part of it.' He like, 'Forreal, I'm a big fan.'" The rest is history.
Reset will be the follow-up to Yo's Bet on Me EP.
