Confirming the news the rapper said to Billboard, "There's a record called 'Byrd Gang Money' that I never serviced but it's playing in clubs up and down the East Coast. I'm going to shoot that video along with the 'Mr. Good Stuff' video, which is the first single off my Columbia album, and release them together."
