Demario White B/K/A Moneybagg Yo was born on September 3, 1991 in South Memphis, Tennessee. The oldest of three siblings, Moneybagg grew tired of seeing his mom struggle to feed him and his sisters, so he dropped out of high school and began running the streets with hopes to support and provide for his family.
During idle time Moneybagg Yo and his best friend Elo began freestyle fun, ELO would tell Moneybagg Yo he truly thought Baggs had what it takes to become a rap star.
In 2015 ELO’s vision came true when Moneybagg Yo dropped Federal, a mixtape that set Memphis and Tennessee-surrounding areas ablaze. But It wasn’t until his best friend ELO was fatally gunned down in 2015 that Moneybagg Yo began to take rap music serious. During these painful times Moneybagg Yo penned and released a CD that wore heavy on the hearts of South and North Memphis. The cd was to titled “ELO” (Everybody Lives On) a tribute to (his Best-friend) the late ELO.
