But It wasn't until his bestfriend ELO was fatally gunned down in 2015 that Moneybagg Yo began to take rap music seriously. 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.
