Video: Deante’ Hitchcock – “I Got Money Now”
Facing Harsh Realities with Verve and Humor, “I Got Money Now” is the Latest Video from Deante’s Acclaimed BETTER Album, Out Now via ByStorm/RCA
“Deante’ Hitchcock is undoubtedly one of Atlanta’s most overlooked artists, aptly sculpting out his sound away from much of the locale’s trap-clad archetypes.” – HYPEBEAST
“By putting so much thought, effort, and curation into not just each track but in the project as a whole, Deante lives up to its lofty title; it’s just better than so much of what else is currently available that there’s no doubt in my mind that he has the potential to one day reach that upper echelon currently occupied by his most conspicuous co-signer. The quality of BETTER suggests that the best is yet to come.” – UPROXX
Deante’ Hitchcock wins fans with his sharp pen, his conversational flow, and his boisterous personality. All of these attributes are out in full force in “I Got Money Now,” his latest music video. Produced by Deante’s go-to guy Brandon Phillips-Taylor, who works in a sample of Minnie Riperton’s classic “Les Fleur,” “I Got Money Now” is a thumping dirty south anthem about making something out of nothing: “Remember they told me that I wouldn’t get it/Then I went and got it (Hmm, sh*t, huh)/I ain’t have shit but lint in my pockets, n****/I was havin’ withdrawals, now I’m at the bank/Makin’ deposits, n****,” opens Deante’.
The new video, directed by GLP, pays tribute to those hustling to make ends meet and those dreaming of a bag big enough to swim in. Deante’ plays multiple roles: a pastor cribbing from the collection plate, a postal worker sick of delivering heavy packages, a robber planning a stickup, a divorce lawyer presenting evidence of infidelity, and a college student trying to finesse a check after getting hit by a car. “I Got Money Now” (which features an appearance from JID in the audio version) is the latest video from BETTER, Deante’ Hitchcock’s debut album, following the Complex-premiered “Attitude” ft. Young Nudy and “How TF” ft. 6LACK (1.1 million views).
After years of building a fanbase with quality singles and exhilarating live performances, Deante’s new album BETTER boasts reflective and spiritual jams like “Flashbacks” and “Growing Up/Mother God” with dirty south stompers like “Gimme Your Money.“ Deante’ is an unflappable tour guide through the recesses of his mind, painting a picture of a young man trying tirelessly to become a better man. Featuring an additional guest appearance from Miguel, BETTER is available everywhere via ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records.

Introspective. Talented. Lyricist. These are just a few words to describe Grammy-nominated rising Atlanta artist Deante’ Hitchcock. After dropping out of Georgia Southern University, Deante’ decided that rap was his only option and began working harder than ever by releasing mixtapes and videos that created an undeniable buzz. His witty, charismatic social media freestyle videos generated his highest exposure, catching the attention of celebs like Wale and Charlamagne Tha God, and eventually led to a recording deal with Mark Pitts’ ByStorm Entertainment.
With several impressive EPs under his lyrical belt, (Good, So Much for Good Luck, Just A Sample, Just A Sample 2) Deante’ is following in the footsteps of the Atlanta legends that came before him such as 2Chainz and Waka Flocka. “What sets him apart from most rappers is his use of storytelling, flexibility in verses, and performances with live bands,” states KarenCivil.com. The Rap Hippies declares, “Hitchcock, who has a knack for crafting hard-hitting, comical, and oftentimes vulnerable lyrics, spits every rhyme as if his life depended on it… If every rapper was as hungry as Deante’ Hitchcock, the world would be a better place. Period.”
In 2019, Deante’ secured a highly coveted spot on the Grammy-nominated J. Cole compilation album, Revenge the Dreamers III, which is currently RIAA-certified Platinum. His latest single, “How TF” featuring LVRN’s 6LACK has 10 million streams and continues to gain exposure with his recently released debut album BETTER on ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records.
