Due to the news of the stimulus checks, President Biden was briefly coined 'Moneybagg Joe' as GIFs and memes of both the rapper and president surfaced on the internet.
In the United States, Moneybagg Yo's music is rooted around the streets that shaped his very life. But now, his influence has transcended his origins in Memphis, Tennessee, and the hip-hop world.
It appears that his status within the industry continues to grow due to his numerous singles that have become popularized, his former relationship with Megan Thee Stallion, and his entrepreneurial endeavors.
Now, the rapper has been the focus of viral memes this week after President Joe Biden signed off on the third round of stimulus checks of $1,400.

Some people even took it upon themselves to put President Biden's face on Moneybagg's, which was one of the hilarious things I've seen all day. Vice President Kamala Harris' face was also photoshopped over his girlfriend Ari Fletcher.
Since he recently wrapped up an album, this seems like the type of publicity that would entice just the right amount of awareness to his artistry.
Moreover, on Friday, the rapper made commentary about the memes making their way to MSNBC with attorney and journalist Ari Melber.
Melber broke down the situation surrounding the president and the creative memes, while Moneybagg was extremely surprised to see that the meme even made it far to the millions of people who watch the news in the country.
"National News Manne Wtf," Moneybagg wrote in his post. "S*** done got outta hand."
This isn't the first time people crossed the bridge between hip-hop and politics.
Sasha Obama was jamming out to the City Girls verse on the remix to Moneybagg's Said Sum. And in November, Stacey Abrams made a guest appearance on Jeezy and Gucci Mane's Verzuz rap battle to promote the Georgia runoff election.
