Jay Money is one of Omaha's most infamous emcees. Most people have never met him, but, they've heard his name and his music. When Hip Hop heads talk about top emcees in Omaha, Jay Money's name will always come up.
Jay Money began recording with DJ Suicide, one of Omaha's pioneer DJ's, spittin' rhymes for his mixtape intros. In 1993, began recording for Thumpin Hard Records. They released a compilation called "Parental Advisory", which was the first project ever recorded, packaged and sold by local artists in Omaha. Jay left Thumpin Hard with DJ Suicide (and others) who went on to form Crossphade Muzic. From 1993-2001, several projects were released, including Jay's group, Da Basement Society's 1994 EP, "Who Downstairs?" which has now received underground classic status.
Jay also appeared on all three of the Crossphade Family CD's (Behind Enemy Lines, 1997; 681, 1998; Middlenium, 2000.) After several years of dealing with personal issues, Jay went on to release "Meet The Dealer:Da James Cash Mixtape", in 2007, and finally, his first solo album, "Da Main Event:Round O.NE", which was recorded between 2008 and 2009 and released to the internet earlier this year. Jay is currently in the studio preparing to release his new mixtape called, "Tru Emcee" and is finishing up songs for the forthcoming album, "Undisputed."
