“Anybody that meets Z Money is going to love Z Money.”
Z Money isn’t talking shit. Spend even just a few minutes in the Chicago rap veteran’s presence and it’s easy to see he’s got bucketfuls of charisma to back up that outsized confidence, not to mention a steady stream of certified local hits (and universal slappers) dating back to the faraway days of 2013. It’s all on full display in a new episode of FREQUENCIES, our collaborative mini-doc series with WAV.
In this episode, Z Money takes us into a West side that seems to run entirely on Cup Noodles and hustle. Whether pulling up at the family trucking business or on the mic at one of his near-daily sessions in the studio, Z Money’s unifying thread seems to be that constant hustle is its own reward. He sums it all up with an observation that’s one-half life story and one-half mantra for the future: “If it comes too easy, it’s going to leave you fast. If you grind for it, it’s going to stay forever.”
