Yo Gotti will get the money no matter what it takes. The Memphis rapper braves the winter weather to dig up a bag of cash in the music video for his song "81." The track itself details how Gotti is making moves in the industry without compromising.

“Could of went on tour with your favorite rapper and declined/Why? I'm tryna break CMG/So fuck that, I'm doing mine/They see I'm mad, see I made folks up in the last street call me back/Say they miss the old Gotti, old Jeezy, old Boosie, that was real rap/In New York with three bangers/Did Jimmy Fallon with Meghan Trainor/I guess the sets won't taint him/Guess the money can't change him,” Gotti raps.

The veteran MC took a big step in his career when he inked a deal with Roc Nation. Gotti signed the dotted line ahead of his White Friday (C9) album release.

“I’m excited to team up with Roc Nation and bring my whole game to the next level,” Gotti said in a statement. “I also want to pay tribute to the memory of my manager Mel Carter, without whom none of this would be possible. I was blessed to have him in my corner for so long, and he brought me here. I did the impossible because of Mel. God bless you and thank you for everything.”
