White Plains, New York rapper Shorts presents the self-directed music video for “Money”, featuring Breeze Mantana and Loose. The track is a freestyle over Dave East’s song of the same name. Born Jaycen Johnson, Shorts is the son of Michael Jackson/Diddy producer Michael “Mike Daddy” Evans. Shorts is prepping for the release of Long Story Short, his forthcoming mixtape featuring Kayne Precise and Breeze Mantana. “As soon as I heard the song I fell in love with the beat,” Shorts says regarding “Money”. “One of those beats that make you wanna write/talk ya s–t lol… not to mention East was goin crayola on that joint so I’m like naa I need parts… the initial vision was to make it a White Plains thing, jusy paying homage to East with hopes of him hearing it to let him know niggas get busy outside of the boroughs too. Told Loose about it then reached out to Breeze to make it a Westchester thing… and the rest is history. You don’t have to live in the city to be considered a New Yorker!” Long Story Short drops July 5th.
