The Grizzlies are currently tied 1-1 with the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Semifinals. During a recent press conference, Draymond Green took a moment to salute the Memphis Hip Hop scene, including Moneybagg Yo.

“Always want to send my love to [Dolph’s] family and the city of Memphis,” he said. “He was a staple. He was someone who took care of the community and gave back. Stayed in his community. He touched his community. So, I send my love and respect.”

He continued, “I don’t get in people’s beefs. I am a Yo Gotti fan as well. I love Dolph’s music, I love Gotti’s music, I love Moneybagg [Yo]’s music. Like I said, I’m not from Memphis, I don’t live in Memphis, so I don’t get caught up in that. I love all their music.”

Moneybagg Yo previously discussed himself and Ja Morant representing the city of Memphis in their professions.

“I’ve got a lot of responsibly,” he said. “It’s Memphis, most definitely, you know I’m putting on for the city. But it’s like, I’ve got real personal responsibilities. I’ve got kids, I’ve got baby mamas, I’ve got people that have been with me since day one. When I first started, I was doing it for them, but now it’s like, I’m a real big influence, I’m a real role model, So I’m doing it for the city of Memphis and I’m doing it for the world now.

“I love having it on my back. Like, me and Ja together doing this, you got sports and you got Hip Hop, you got entertainment. On both sides you can’t stop us, we on top.”
