Moneybagg Yo is continuing his 29th birthday celebration with his new project making it into the top 10 on the Billboard 200. His collaborative album with Blac Youngsta, Code Red, has debuted at No. 6 on the chart with roughly 40,000 equivalent album units earned.
On Sunday (September 28), the Memphis rapper felt like bragging about his income by posting a video of him picking up racks of money and stacking them on his lap — all from inside a Bentley.
“Which Video Y’all Wanna See Next Off #CodeRed,” Moneybagg wrote as the Instagram caption while blasting the album’s opening track “Birthplace.”
So far, the project has produced visuals for “SRT,” “Super Hot,” “Truth Be Told” and the original version of “Said Sum.” YG, who collaborated with Moneybagg on his 2018 song “Curry Jersey,” also commented on the Instagram video with laughing emojis.
Code Red‘s first week numbers are made up of 37,000 SEA units (equalling 51.5 million on-demand streams), 3,000 album sales and 1,000 TEA units. The LP, which features Yo Gotti, 42 Dugg, City Girls, DaBaby and others, is Moneybagg’s second time in the top 10 this year after his solo album Time Served debuted at No. 3 in January with roughly 66,000 units.
Over the past week, shootings have taken place at two of Moneybagg’s events. On Saturday (September 26), shots were fired at Moneybagg’s party in Dallas, where staff at strip club V Live reportedly had to lock themselves inside rooms to avoid gunfire.

The weekend’s news followed reports of gunfire at his Las Vegas party on Tuesday (September 23). Taking place outside the Aria Resort & Casino, a fight broke out near the valet station, with one woman suffering a minor injury after a bullet grazed her.
Moneybagg denied his involvement, saying, “Shot at who? Ain’t no muthafuckas shot at us, man. I’m in a Maybach right now man. My muthafucking shoes off. As I speak my shoes off in this bitch. Wassup? And I’m riding through this bitch. I’m in Vegas.”
Prior to the incident, Youngsta called for a “shootout” on Instagram while also in Vegas celebrating Moneybagg’s birthday.
“Where you pussy-ass n***as at?” Youngsta said. “Let’s have some fun. Let’s have a shootout. Let’s do something, n***a. C’mon bitch, pull up.”
