Moneybagg Yo, Gumbo Shut Down Miami for ‘Shot Off’ Launch

Brands often activate in December during Miami’s Art Basel week. But the hottest cannabis buzzing in the street right now, Gumbo Brands, and chart-topping hip-hop artist Moneybagg Yo, waited for the dust to settle to celebrate the announcement of their partnership for Bagg’s new Gumbo strain “Shot Off Gumbo.” In a more intimate affair, they shut down the Black-owned restaurant, Playa Miami, for about 50 guests including a few celebrity friends of the brand, Caresha of The City Girls, Amber Rose, N.O.R.E. Moneybagg Yo and Alexis Major, the Gumbo Brands’ Founders, were also present. 

It was amazing to see how much ice was left in this room, even for such small guests. Wall-to-wall bling-off! If you’ve never been to a Gumbo event, let me warn you, they like to do everything big for the culture. The drinks were flowing with a full open bar… definitely shots of 1942 were being passed frivolously around the tables. It was amazing. I suggest anyone in the Miami Beach area or planning to visit to make a reservation immediately… highly recommend the mouth-watering lamb chops, calamari bites and the yummy mac & cheese. Thank me later! The vibe and the networking was on one thousand, especially with DJ Wrecky who totally kept the hype going while mixing in a healthy amount of Bagg’s hottest hits all night. They had to light the candles by the end because no one wanted the party to end. Everyone was given the Gumbo Pens and enough gas to last them all.

Gumbo showed Moneybagg Yo great love during the announcement dinner. They also gave him a 150-carat chain with VS Diamonds and a 90-carat VS Diamond watch from Pristine jewelers. The Black-owned cannabis and lifestyle brand has been buzzing like crazy in the streets, especially gaining more attention with their collaborations with today’s hottest in entertainment including Meek Mill, Lil Meech, N.O.R.E., Fabolous, and brand sponsor for viral podcast, Drink Champs. 

The “Shot Off Gumbo” strain will be a Hybrid with an earthy sweet pine undertone and euphoric and stoney experience under the Gumbo Brands Umbrella.

Gumbo Brands was created by Alexis Major, an entrepreneur couple from Black America. Unlike some of the corporate brands that swoop in and try to take advantage of cultural equity in this industry, Gumbo Brands’ major focus is making a difference, building wealth, and sharing knowledge within the Black and Brown communities. Only 4.3% of cannabis business owners are Black. They are breaking down the barriers by helping more people get involved in cannabis businesses and giving them the tools and opportunities for success. Gumbo Brands is utilizing creative cultural initiatives in this space to encourage entrepreneurship while also supporting racial justice outcomes and inclusion, including working with the formerly incarcerated to gain licenses, who oftentimes don’t have the financial means or proper information to secure one. 

Gumbo, a leader in cannabis, is sold at the top dispensaries throughout the country. They are also on the way to international expansion through their products which include flower, G-pens and exclusive merch. The brand recently announced that they have partnered with Cookies, a global company. This will allow them to access 22 states as well as 15 other countries in the wake of legalization. If you’re looking to get your hands on some of this new cannabis strain, be sure to check out
