My legal name is Jesse J Tessier aka New Money.Born may 5th 1989 in onieda NY,though you typically think of a rapper to come from the city or suburban area I do not.Im from Norwich Ny which is honestly a place no one has ever heard of & it is totally a country surrounding & a backwoods area.With that said Ive lived a very wild life compared to what you may assume by first glance or a generalization.I was in & out of trouble my whole life & after the last stay in county lock up I decided it was time to make a change in my life & follow my dream & passion for music.
So in 2008 I met Jimmy Thomas & after showing him I had the talent to write a good song & deliver it as well,he came down to where I lived outside of Greene NY & brought me to his home town of Buffalo & put me in the studio.I was told when we arrived that I would have 2 hours of studio time & he would like to hear 1 song finished when he arrived back to pick me up.Well when he arrived back to pick me up I had successfully completed my first song along with another & was starting on my third.To say the least he was shocked & couldnt believe that for my first time ever in a studio I had done so well.
Well while i was working under D.V. Entertainment i had released 1 mixtape & it was my first mixtape titled Born 2 Win Refuse To Lose Pt 1 The Beginning,which to this day I believe to be a compilation of my best songs.When I finally left Buffalo & returned home it became very hard to continue working with D.V. so in turn I had ventured into making my own company Welfare Mafia Entertainment.I began to compose a whole new mixtape & album & decided to take my mixtape Born 2 Win Refuse 2 Lose & make it into a series of mixtapes.I released 5 mixtapes under that series & then released my first album MISS-TAKEN as a street album on Datpiff.com.
I have a very long resume as far as music goes,I have been featured on numerous Coast 2 Coast mixtapes & numerous other mixtape series.I have always had a passion for music & in my most recent venture I have signed with Loud Pack Records & Entertainment.Though at times I feel Im highly overlooked & my different styles of music are under estimated or misunderstood,though I feel it is my genuine style that makes me different & stand out in a crowd of following non original artist today.I feel that day by day I can do nothing but improve my music & further myself as an artist,though Im from a place you would not expect an artist such as myself to come from I embrace this & like to show my country roots knowing many people will & do not understand it,I embrace my differences & feel this is what makes me an original & very unique musician.
