Mr Smith AKA Boss Money
Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It had just hit theaters a week prior when the man who’d be known as BO$$ Money made his debut in Greenwood, South Carolina. He spent part of his childhood there until his mother passed away in 1999. As the new the world entered the new millennium, the teenager had to start over in a new city with his father. While some may’ve fallen through the cracks in that situation, he flourished as he killed it in speech, debate and community activities. All of these above laid the foundation for the performer he’d soon discover he’d be.Soon after he’d graduated high school a DJ friend of his introduced him to recording music and then and there, BO$$ Money was born. Now he’s working alongside legends such as D.C.’s Godfather and Atlanta’s own Kool Ace as he lives that grind hard, shine hard lifestyle.When the world was singing along to the likes of “SexyBack,” “Check On It” and “MoneyMaker,” BO$$ Money was dropping his debut. 2006 saw the release of the said debut, TrueWords. Since then the emcee has churned out almost a dozen albums. His latest being 2018’sEP, TLE Cook Up.The new album features We$ B on the lead single “DoubleBack.” It’s a song that is all about motivating and highlighting the hustle while at the same time entertaining the masses as abanger. Of course being from South Carolina, he represents that southern style with tracks like“Dirty South Slang.” At the end of the day, BO$$ Money is about the motivation. He notes, “I’m Giving you a real perspective on life as we live but also giving back by sharing the knowledge through the music. In my own pimped out boss playa down south way.”BO$$ Money has played throughout the south. From his hometown in South Carolina to ClubHarpo’s in Memphis to Knockouts Bar & Lounge in Atlanta. His latest performance took place back home in Columbia, SC at Park Place where he held his TLE Cook Up album listening party.Much like his idols Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent, BO$$ Money doesn’t just want to focus on music.He wants to be a well-rounded artist and delve into acting and the business side of music. To be a mogul is the goal and he’ll continue to grind hard and shine hard until his goals are reached.
