For weeks, Amiri has been teasing a snippet of “Dirty Money” on TikTok, which had earned 25,000 SoundCloud streams and had fans begging for its official release.
On the long-awaited track, Amiri flows over a laid-back beat produced by frequent collaborator Rio Leyva, also responsible for Amiri songs like “For The Better” and “Focus.” Showcasing his impressive hook-making abilities, Amiri’s melodic tone, deep vocals and light cadence give this track the ultimate addictive qualities.
Dirty money (Dirty money), dirty funds (Woo-woo)
Love my songs, she told me that I’m the one (Dirty money)
No, I can’t give you love, I’m gon’ fuck it up (No, no way)
No, I don’t see no one, focused on my bucks (No, no way)“Dirty Money” – Rich Amiri
Tycho Burwell, the man behind the camera for Amiri and Internet Money‘s “The Toxic Lifestyle” video, directed and shot the visuals for “Dirty Money.” In the video, Rich Amiri kicks it in a prison cell while talking with a detective, played by fellow underground artist and Boston native Devstacks, about a load of cash that he stole.
At the end of the video, Amiri is filmed flexing the “Dirty Money” in an all-black leather outfit. As the story unravels and Amiri finds freedom, Burwell’s creativity and directing skills truly shine through.
With “Dirty Money,” it seems that Rich Amiri only keeps improving upon his catchy melodies and honing in on his pluggnb style. At this point, it’s only a matter of time until we see the rookie make it to the big leagues.
