Biography of Major Money







Rapper/Producer/CEO

Major Money was born March 2, 1982 in Houston, Texas into a strict gospel upbringing.
Music was the focal point in a family where music often times was the only means for
survival. In major's words, "I was born on a church pew, the last row way in the back"
We couldn't play secular music in my house, only gospel; Tramaine Hawkins, John P.
key, Mississippi Mass Choir, and Shirley, you know the good stuff, but growing up in the
80's and early 90's in a low income home in the ghettos on the north side of Houston was
the fuel needed to ignite the fire that is now known as MAJOR MONEY!

I started running packs when I was 9, the older cats would give me 10 or 20 bucks
to ride from one set of the apartments to another and honestly I had no idea what was in
the bag I just knew I was making money and we needed it. I never looked in it because
I was told not to. Eventually I was making trips every other day and the packages got
bigger and instead of the 10's n 20's it was 50's n 100's.
By the time I was 11 I had over $8000 saved keeping it pinned to the back of my dresser
drawers in church socks. In my world I was rich and there was nothing anyone could
do to change my mind, so I struck out from my parents into this belly we call American
culture. I was living from place to place for the next 2 years; mostly destitute, I picked
up hustling to survive. This is when I was introduced to the "crack" game, at the age of
13. By this time I was living on the streets of Dallas after a two week trial at my father’s
house, which only solidified my belief that living with someone was not for me. I was
once again on the streets. I was given 5 stones and was told to sell these stones for 20
bucks a pop and after that I was to keep 20 and give the 80 back. So that's what I did,
and I was making it eating good and staying with a homie and his mom until that ended
when we got caught for stealing cars. So, I had to get my own place. I knew this one
older female that I sold to that wasn't that bad out there yet, so I used her to get my first
apartment at the age of 13. I was staying in Barbara Jordan projects hustling, but all the
time loving the new music that I was finally able to listen to.
I moved back to Houston only a year later to take over a lease when my mom remarried
and moved to a new place. Back in Houston on the north side, paying $365 a month
plus utilities for a 2 bed 2 bath at 14. By this time I was heavy into writing songs and
producing music. I had met a man by the name of Mr. Brown who was the first to
recognize my hunger and talents. He bought me an Ensoniq es-10 which was the starting
point of my musical career. I recorded my first single "What's Ur Name" which I took
to a local DJ by the name of Madd Hadda who was then at 102jamz, and he played it
for a whole weekend, but I still needed work. I was in a singing group named FLAJ
and we were an r&b group, but we met a guy by the name of V. Micheal McKay and
we started singing gospel. We performed with the then unknown Yolanda Adams at the
Texas gospel music awards and eventually started opening up for John p Key one of my
childhood idols.....good times.

I always loved gospel music but at this point in my life I had seen so much, yet
didn't have the resources to obtain the things I longed for. So I was constantly at war

with myself over the choice of music to pursue. By this point, my group and I were
heavy in the talent show circuit, winning showcase after showcase, which eventually led
to the meeting of Brad Jordan a.k.a Scarface, who signed me to my first record deal in
1995 to Interface records which led to working with all the Houston greats like the Geto
Boys, Big mike, Mike Dean, and N.O Joe, just to name a few. I worked on some of best
projects like The Geto boy's "resurrection" and Scareface's "My Homies" After working
under Scarface for years with no advance me and my group FLAJ were induced to
Rap-a-lot Records who had no need for a singing group after the less than stellar release
of their first r&b act. We were quickly induced to nootribe/virgin which lasted only a
few short years before eventually getting dropped, after their first attempt with r&b didn't
take off.

502 Recordz was my first independent recording label which yielded some great
records and was a great hands on experience in the business of music. This label was an
r&b label whose main act SMOK had mild success, but duo to lack of funds and
knowledge of the business of music, was limited to a local audience. I was the primary
producer. I went by WyleChyle da Creator along with other producers like Geronimo
aka Bang Beatz
NuMoney Recordz was established in 2005, after the breakup of the group
SMOK, with a new focus and direction. This label would be a hip hop label that
incorporated both rap and r&b. The first act the Block Boyz helped spearhead the street
movement, but duo to the instability of the group members the group was sold to RPH
entertainment owned by Rodney p Hunt. This move gave me the Capitol to launch a
project but now the only project I had developed for the last 4 years was gone. This was
the birth of MAJOR MONEY; not having a group didn't detour me I was the writer and
the producer. Who better to produce than myself?? Read Less
