MONEY FIRST is a 4 man rap group out of Trenton, New Jersey. Growing up in one of the most crime-stricken areas in the country, music was always a “way out.” Boom Blake, Tranzatick, JP & Ill Kayn all represent ideas and experiences that they personally went through in life. Powerful individually, but as a team, MONEY FIRST is unstoppable. The 80’s babies have the best of several different eras of Hip Hop, enabling the receptive to combine styles and concepts derived from the old and new school. Although, today many artists have forgotten the 80’s and 90’s styling’s and stick with what’s “safe” and proven lucrative with consumers. Rap has gotten overly concerned with image and material wealth, overshadowing the main goal of creating legendary music. MONEY FIRST honors Hip Hop- past, present and future- by stepping off “the red carpet” and focusing more on the quality of substance and content they cook up for the world.
MONEY FIRST winners of the 2009 “Best Rap Group “ Underground Music Award , has collaborated with some of the most buzz-worthy artists in the game like Uncle Murda, Esso, Donny Goines, Panama (from the Wire) and others. Also they have graced stages with notable MC’s such as Styles P, Cassidy, Jr Writer, Freeway, and DMC of the Legendary RUN DMC. Partnering up with Block Starz Music for the release of their debut mix tape “The Blog Goon Mix tape” MONEY FIRST managed to amass over 10 thousand downloads in just one week proving that all the hard work and dedication are the key to their success.
