Kash Dinero is a driven, passionate and charismatic artist with a unique approach to his blend of Hip Hop. I got the chance to have an interview with him, and I learned a lot of things from this artist. His music is all about connecting with listeners through high-energy releases, uplifting melodies, and a thought-provoking lyrical flow…
1 – What attracts you to Hip Hop and Rap?
The ego, the beats, the way I can express myself through a microphone, and grab the attention of those who can relate to my music. Hip Hop has always played a big role in my life for as long as I can remember. Growing up all my dad had us listening to was rap. From No Limit, to Cash Money, to E-40, and Slick Rick. I was a huge fan of The Brat back in my childhood days, so that should let you know how long I’ve been attracted to the Hip Hop culture.
2 – I’m curious about your choice of name… What’s the idea behind Kash Dinero?
MONEY! I love me some Cash Money! … Not to toot my own horn, but when I lay my vocals down on instrumentals I sound like money, if you see me out in public I’m looking like money. I felt it was only right to go by a name that stands for money in 2 different terms.
3 – Do you like to do collaborations?
I’m not very big on collaborations. I don’t want people to see me as one of those artist who always has features, or the ones who can’t get it done on their own. I want my fans to see, and know my work ethic is strong.
4 – Do you have any rivals?
No, none that I know of. I may be a rival of someone from my city, and if I am I never knew. It’s a lot of hate going on these days so you never know.
5 – Where do you think Hip Hop is going?
I can’t call it, Hip Hop culture is forever, and always will be changing. I look at it as if it’s headed in a great direction for up and coming artist like myself.
6 – Who was your inspiration?
My oldest cousin Kijuan. He was already writing, and recording his own music in his momma’s attic when I was like nine years old. By the time I turned twelve he finally let me come to watch him record a session, and helped me write my first rap. He gave me the name “Lil Don”, and I just ran with it. From there out I started doing my own thing, which led me to this point now.
7 – What are you working on these days?
Right now, I’m working on a follow up to my first official mixtape “Applying Pressure”. I’m in the studio working everyday so it’ll be out sometime this summer.
8 – Describe in 5 words your music style.
Melodic, Flashy, Extravagant, Jazz, and Trap all in one.
9 – Have you won any awards?
Not at the moment, but I plan on it. I am working very hard to accomplish that.
10 – Will you ever retire from the music world?
As of right now I don’t see myself retiring anytime soon. I still have ALOT of work, and goals ahead of me before the thought of retirement ever surfaces in my thoughts.
