DDG’s single “Money Long” featuring 42 Dugg is a striking hip-hop tune that showcases DDG’s incredible, clear voice, intensely engaging lyrics, and unique rhythmic production that perfectly captures the tone of the song’s narrative.
The intro of “Money Long” consists of beautifully ominous electronic tones in a minor key that reverberate and echo in waves. The verse enters strongly with DDG’s crisp and clear rapping that adds an intensity to the straight-forward lyrics that depict the trials and benefits of wealth. 42 Dugg’s interlude is a perfect addition that adds a different tone and texture with his signature rhythmic style. Despite the depiction of the negative sides of wealth, DDG ends the song with a definitive “ain’t no way I’m going back”.
Originally from Pontiac, Michigan, DDG, also known as Darryl Dwayne Granberry Jr., has created his own career by releasing his music and growing his following on YouTube. With “Money Long”, DDG teamed up with OG Parker and 42 Dugg to create an incredibly catchy hip hop track that boasts clever and memorable lyrics, original and supportive production, and DDG’s own amazing voice. With this release, it’s apparent DDG has much more success and wealth in his future.
