Incomparable. That one word eloquently captures the creative spirit of
groundbreaking artist J Money. Michigan’s Joseph Washington a.k.a J Money
Tha Takeova is the leading up and coming artist in Hip Hop today. From the city
of Lansing, to a major platform in the movement of the new school, a rocky road
provides a window into the grace he experienced throughout his life--with every
situation molding him into the artist and leader he is today.
Joseph inherited his ambition from his parents who were entrepreneurs and also
heavily involved in music. At a young age, Joseph received the name Money
for his crafty ability to make every situation an opportunity to generate income.
From lemonade stands to candy bar sells, Money started to gain local attention
as a talented, ambitious young boy with vision. At 13-years-old, Money began
rapping and songwriting in a group known as Black Diamond. Shortly after
joining the group and affirming his passion for music, the artist, J Money Tha
Takeova, was born.
Soon after, J Money established his own studio where people from all over
Lansing came to fulfill their dreams of one day making it in the music industry.
The next few years included many struggles and victories before he teamed
up with DJ Sycko to help elevate his music career. Pouring out a genuine
discussion of life issues and using music as a way to vent, J Money released his
mixtapes, Gumbo featuring R&B artist Christian Nelson and Welcome to My
Reality. Listeners appreciated his unapologetic delivery of worldwide truths and
transparent, relatable, and encouraging lyrics.
As J Money continued to make his mark in the music industry, he realized the
stage wasn’t enough. There needed to be a way to reciprocate the support
and love that his fans and community showed him, so he started to volunteer
locally throughout Michigan. After extending his impact, J Money Tha Takeova
released his groundbreaking single “Chi Omega Girl”. The after effect of this
song continues to spread nationwide, receiving thousands of YouTube hits and
countless booking requests.
Currently J Money is working on two upcoming projects. The mixtape entitled
Motivation is expected to drop in July of this year and his new album Reality
will be released before the end of 2012. Without a doubt, J Money’s passion
for impacting urban culture persists. With a musically evolving and successful
discography, nationwide recognition along with an unmatched ambition; J Money
is humbled by his position in the growing movement to spread the truth. His hope
is that his impact will spread far beyond simply the music and into the lives of
individuals across the globe.
