“All My Money” Personal Finance Rap Video

A Personal Finance Rap Video You’ll Want To Download

Lorde’s right: Rap music is chock full of really bad financial advice, from spending money on things you don’t need and can’t afford (i.e. Bentleys, Rolexes, etc.), and popping Cristal when Korbel will do. Kanye West and Jay-Z will probably never rap about living within your means and trumping the benefits of budgeting, but the boys at ListenMoneyMatters.com say, “if they won’t, we will.” And they did!

“All My Money” is a personal finance rap song written and produced by Matt Giovanisci, co-founder of ListenMoneyMatters.com. Matt, along with his partner Andrew Fiebert, put together a stylish rap video set in the streets of New York City.

“We wanted to do something outside the box,” says Matt. ” We wanted to showcase our talents and prove that not only can we write about money, but we can rap about it too.”

Listen Money Matters is a resource that guides you in managing and investing your money. They go beyond what you always hear and tell you how to do things effectively and with minimal effort on your part.

The video was entirely self-produced by the duo using four inexpensive cameras, including an iPhone. Matt admits, “the goal of our video was to film it on a budget, as we would be hypocritical to produce the video with the top-of-the-line gear.” The spent two days traveling around New York and Hoboken getting all the footage they needed.

When it was all said and done, the video costs a total of $95, which included cab rides, subways, and lunch around the cities. Matt and Andrew hope the video makes them nerdy rap stars, of course. But their greater hope is that it will inspire viewers. “We want to teach everyone how easy personal finance is, and we hope that this video inspires people to start handling their money better and get out of debt faster.”

“All My Money” Lyrics

I don’t wanna be broke, I just wanna be paid / I’m just gonna take all my money and put it away / All my money away.

Officially out of debt / Credit card, no respect, I’m over it / Bounty hunting fees like I’m Boba Fett / You feel it yet? / Got a check, now deposit it / Your entitlement, invest it man / Take the bet, no regret / Believe it now / Ditched the ward cleaver style / Start saving, waiving, stashing rations like a beaver now / Hold it down / Add it to your savings, basic elementary / Purse be overfloweth, twenty first century / Potentially, wait and see, where you’ll be financially / Soon you’ll be competing with the Rockefeller family / Withdrawals and bank logs, make it automatically / Fanatically invest / Money’s in the interest / Take your dollars back in control, I need em / Fight for an annual rate, I beat em / Pay your credit cards every month, I cheat em / No stress, no debt, that’s freedom!

At Money Matters Man, cause listen, money matters man / Never satisfied till the money’s in my hand / You understand where I’m coming from, mix it up, mutual fund / Flavor like bubble gum, stocks, bonds, then I want / Saving for retirement / This boy ain’t for hire man / Money’s burning holes in your jeans, become a fireman / You running scared, ain’t prepared, no apologies / Instead of sitting on your love seat blaming the economy / You follow me / Yea, now you understand it / Lazy when you hear me say, “step up and demand it.” / And now you’re reprimanded they’ll rob you like a bandit / Drain you like a swimming pool and leave you empty handed / Join the establishment / Use Mint, Betterment / All for your settlement, making a better man / I’m out, son, you know what to do / Make your money work for you.

    Cheers,
    Ree

    • Matt Giovanisci

      I hope it does too :-)

  • Kyle Russell

    Truly awesome guys. Everything you guys are doing is awesome. Saving money doesn’t have to be a chore it can be automatic and fun, which you guys have shown here. Awesome.

    • Thanks Kyle! We’re excited to help people fix their finances – because it isn’t difficult. Occasionally, we also like to rap about it ;)

  • QA36

    Cool of you to offer the financial advice. If you don’t mind me asking, how much did you make on returns from producing this music video? Because the music industry is not doing well, so I’m surprised at your choice of investment. Good luck to ya.

    • QA36, we made exactly zero dollars from this video. Much like the majority of what we create.

      We create things for the sheer joy of creating and always with the hope of teaching and inspiring. Us creating this in our spare time is not much different than people who may choose to play sports. Call it a hobby :)

      As for the music industry and artists making money – they most certainly do. I can say so with confidence since by day I work for iHeartRadio on the Royalty payment process. The industry just doesn’t make money in the same way it did back before 1972 (pre royalties).

  • Drew Kesterson

    Finally listened to this… doesn’t even sound like Matt! Andrew stole the show though. And, youre broke ass was right, it does get stuck in your head!

  • Xavier Rivera

    Matt great job on the video, lyrics, everything, shared it immediately. Keep up the great work!

    In the words of P. Diddy “Can’t stop, won’t stop! Uhh Ughhh”

    This is freakin awesome. You two out did yourselves with this one and now I can’t wait for season 2. Not going to lie, I think you guys were pretty much just a couple of cool nerds whose beer team had a finance problem but you both went up several notches on my belt. Hats off to ya’ll.
