With a twisty flow and a soft-spoken menace, 1017 Eskimo signee Z Money redefines the sound of Chicago rap. Holing up in a safehouse with some models, his homies, and an unfortunate hostage, Z Money totes a strap and mean mugs in “Durag,” his latest video.
Flashing a playground cadence above an eerie and aqueous instrumental from Rio Mac, Z Money points out the repercussions if you cross him. Featuring an appearance by an enthusiastic Key Glock, the video finds the two rappers pointing guns and dancing with seductive women, all while making an example of an unfortunate snitch.
“Durag” is a highlight from Chiraq Mogul, Z Money’s most recent 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.
