Following last month’s “BALD!,” JPEGMAFIA has returned with yet another emphatically named surprise track, “Covered in Money!”
The four-minute song is broken down into two parts. The first half features Peggy slinging confident bars over a glitchy beat. “I’m covered in money / I’m out for the bag, ooh / I flew out the country (Damn) / Borderline dressin’ in drag,” he spits on the chorus.
On the latter half, dubbed “The Devil Wears Prada,” the rapper takes it down a notch to deliver a laid-back Auto-Tuned verse that references the late Martin Luther King and comedian Bernie Mac. “When I die, hope my music gives cowards pain,” JPEGMAFIA raps. “Pray Allah, Christ and Buddha, you’ll never be shamed / My little kids gonna inherit this fame.”
“Covered in Money!” was accompanied by a self-directed video, which stars the rapper wilding out in his car with dollar bills. In the YouTube’s description, Peggy jokingly noted that the cash “ha[d] been sterilized” as a protective measure against the coronavirus.
