Rimzee - Money And Power

Hot on the heels of a MOBO nomination for ‘Best Newcomer’, the UK rap trailblazer continues to cement his name as one of the best lyricists emanating from these shores with a hard-hitting new single. “Money and Power” sees Rimzee deliver his trademark bars atop punchy percussive elements, light piano keys and echoing vocal samples, making for an impactful soundtrack. Exclaiming “first you get the money, then you get the power, then you get the women“, Rimzee demonstrates his innate ability in crafting powerful and thought-provoking real rap music.

The UK artist has left an undeniable imprint in the rap landscape since the release of his acclaimed debut project, The Upper Clapton Dream, in 2012 – a tape that boasts longevity and culture – with the follow up Upper Clapton Dream 2 releasing in 2020, containing thirteen songs and features from the likes of Potter Payper, M24, Ay Em, Snap Capone and Stardom amongst others. Last year saw Rimzee release his most complete body of work yet in Cold Feet, spanning eighteen immaculately curated tracks exploring past pain and trauma – charting independently at number 11. Joined by the likes of K-Trap, Giggs, Emeli Sandé, Maverick Sabre, Nemzzz and Tiggs Da Author, Cold Feet was a landmark release, demonstrating Rimzee’s versatility and position in the scene, calling on a string of A-List rappers and artists to join him on this musical journey.

Talent and creativity in music has enabled Rimzee to turn his life around – from deprivation to becoming a reformed entrepreneur, Rimzee now proudly owns a string of successful businesses including a car rental business, a record label and recording studio, all alongside a growing property portfolio. Last year saw Rimzee launch an initiative that put successful entrepreneurs in workshops and discussions with young people from disadvantaged and under-served communities, showing a clear motivation to use his growing fame, influence and business experience to help the next generation of young people escape the vicious cycle of crime.

In the run up to his forthcoming album, Rimzee has continued to give back to communities, feeding over 700 people across London and giving away 70 jackets in his hometown of Hackney, with plenty more initiatives on the horizon.

Lyrics:

Hook x2
First you get the money then you the get power then you get the women
First you get the money then you the get power then you get the women
I told them get this money then you get the power then you get the women
Gotta chase the money then you get the power then you get the women

I seen too many needles I don’t no bout legal
white rocks I should of been in the Beatles
I Spent my whole life trapping
Never thought I be rapping
Sold out tours sh** I couldn’t imagine

They told me stay in my lane
Always knew I be a been great
Now it’s king crab on Chinese plates
Pressing I didn’t no bout pr
I put grub on tanitas Used to trap from Batinas Dres price was the cheapest

I no they hear me
My lifestyle scary 30 quid on Amiris

I made crack from cane
My barrel spin like my name
Governed my block like it’s matches

Went from , selling raw to selling out tours
She see the 4 by 4 she wanna take of her draws
Muslim but my b30s Christian
All the Niggas like me they either dead or in prison

Hook x2
First you get the money then you the get power then you get the women
First you get the money then you the get power then you get the women
I told them get this money then you get the power then you get the women
Gotta chase the money then you get the power then you get the women

Dream chasing omelly Pull up widda a prezzie
Use do 3 for 20
Never thought I be on telly

Came up the hardest way Selling dark and yay
But They can’t see this pain through these Prada shades

Came up so hard
Mixing lv wid go yard
Whip the svr like a go kart

Used to hustle backwards
Now my steak coming with asparagus
Seated by the sportsmen and the actors

Rip ti
Got the streets in my jeans like Levi’s
I been out here since knee high

I need a million with a s ak I need it plurals
I told my gal will never be normal

Money don’t make me jail couldn’t break me
Watch cost 80 rap white slime shady

Fans stopping me pictures
They clocks me from a distance
But lord knows I was really living different

Hook x2
First you get the money then you the get power then you get the women
First you get the money then you the get power then you get the women
I told them get this money then you get the power then you get the women
Gotta chase the money then you get the power then you get the women
