Money Boy (born June 27, 1981 in Vienna, also known as Mbeezy, interim Why SL Know Plug, YSL Know Plug, Why SL Beezy, born as Sebastian Meisinger) is an Austrian rap-singer. He became famous with his hit Dreh den Swag auf.
Money Boy grew up in the 15th district of Vienna, Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus. By 2008, he studied Journalism and Communication at the University of Vienna. He successfully graduated with the degree Magister philosophiae. His master's thesis was about Gangsta Rap in Germany. Before starting with rap, he played basketball for a long time. He initially wrote his lyrics in English. After his first public title, Ching, Chang, Chung, Money Boy caught attention in late summer 2010 after publishing his cover Version of Soulja Boy's Turn My Swag On, Dreh den Swag auf.
In 2014, he gained attention for his appearance in a live show on Swiss TV channel joiz, during which he recommended the recreational use of Heroin and MDMA at parties. Some of the Twitter messages which were contributed by the TV audience, and were read out on live TV by a moderator included ″Take drugs and rape sluts" and "I just took Heroin and I'm having a really good time"; regarding the latter one, the moderator stated that he "did not know if this is meant seriously or just a joke". One of the moderators also alleged that he urinated on the wall of the TV station building during a break. For that performance, Money Boy got an award by German TV station ProSieben. He attended the awarding ceremony, which was broadcast on TV, and recited his acceptance speech as a rap.
In 2015, he performed with members of the Glo Up Dinero Gang at the sold out VideoDays, including an ambiguous statement about recreational drug use at the end of his performance: "Drugs are bad, I confess that shit; but I am high, so I have no problems with it.".[note 1]
Glo Up Dinero Gang
He founded the Glo Up Dinero Gang, a gang that features various artists with a similar style and image; some of the more known artists include Spinning 9. Hustensaft Jüngling (Cough Syrup Youngster) and Medikamenten Manfred (Medication Manfred).
