Tell us a little about yourself?
I go by the name ‘Fazcash’. I was born downtown St. Louis, MO in the Cochran projects. I have always loved music. I come from a family of 6. I have 3 brothers & 2 sisters. I am the middle child.
How did you come up with your artist name?
I got my stage name ‘Fazcash’ because I have always been good with money. I have always made my own money, wether it came from the streets or honestly working for it. I don’t waste time, I get it done pretty quick lol. I cut off the S and T out of ‘fast’ and put a Z at the end because it’s strong. I like to stand out. I like to be unique that’s what keeps me creative!
How long have you been in the music industry?
I’ve had a love for music my whole life. I remember watching Nas, Jay Z, Dipset etc as a kid and I used to think ‘to myself, “I’ll be there one day”. I have been investing my own money into it since 2014.
How did you get started in the music business in the first place?
I used to sneak in the palace and saints watching hit man holla. J-kwon Koko cvere the whole 9 etc. performing and battling in the rap battles. Watching that gave me inspiration. I think watching Nelly and chingy blow up really put my thinking cap on to just take a risk in life and not be scared to take a leap of faith.
How would you describe your latest single?
The lastest singles I have drop is committed, rackz and 43Va. Committed is a song to inspire people not to give up on your dreams ‘rackz’ is a song for people that like to splurge after they worked hard and 43Va is more for the ladies and the sun for that song is no matter what we all gave ups and down but with a little patience’s you can weather any storm.
When can fans expect the visuals for the single?
Can’t put a date on that as of now but just know it will be soon I apologise for the wait in my lil Wayne voice lol.
Who are your inspirations in the music industry?
Well for starters I will say master P, Jay-Z, P.Diddy and Nelly they started at the bottom and they are at the top but if you don’t put in the foot work how do you expect to get anywhere so watching them helped me push harder and think wiser how I invest my money.
