The next generation of New York City rappers carry on the tradition of grime and glamour. Moneymade Eli is a new-school hip-hop artist who authentically embodies the self-reliance and inner grit that many cynics complain is a thing of the past. The future for New York City rap looks brighter due to these young dedicated rappers.
In his latest music video for the single “Tippity Top,” Moneymade Eli is seen in a New York train station and outside with a new black Benz while snow falls around him. The theme of pursuing one’s gifts while simultaneously surviving is reflected by lyrics like, “told myself only need myself/Young rich *****, I don’t need no help!”
“Cymbals skitter is in the background at a tense pace”. Moneymade Eli keeps it real about the challenges of city living, but he always keeps his cool. He emulates a balanced and humble strength with his confident and steadfast delivering abilities.
