Cadillac Don and J Money
Born in the Northern Mississippi town of Crawford Mississippi, a small country town where everybody's knows everybody, both Cadillac Don (AKA Donald Sharp) and J. Money (AKA: Tiyon Rogers) grew up poor in single parent homes where music like blues and r & b took center stage in their lives, but as the two childhood friends grew older they soon gravitated toward hip hop. Cadillac Don list hip hop stalwarts like Big Daddy Kane as his chief influences while J. Money cites LL Cool J and Tupac as major influences.
Cadillac Don say his love for hip hop was so strong coming up that at the age of six he and his older brother would sneak out the house and hit the streets at night break-dancing in front of adults for money. Initially Cadillac and J were going to be solo rappers, but because they were such good friends they would often do guest appearances on each other's songs.
Produced by Big Fruit "Peanut Butter & Jelly," the album's lead single is built around a hypnotic joog beat and menacing piano chords and a steel pan melody, "Peanut Butter & Jelly" celebrates the supped up rides with the candy paint and tan leather interior.
With the initial success of their lead single "Peanut Butter & Jelly" and the response that many of their other songs are getting in the streets Cadillac Don & J Money are more than confident that they are going to a major force in the rap game.
