He was soon signed to Death Row Records, and assigned to produce on classic albums such as; Dogg Food by Tha Dogg Pound, Tha Doggfather by Snoop Dogg, and All Eyez On Me by 2Pac.

With two independent albums under his belt, hit singles such as “Like It Or Not”, “Put The Monkey In It” with Daz Dillinger, and “I Don’t Hang” from A Thin Line Between Love & Hate Soundtrack, the multi-platinum music producer continues to solidify his position as one of the most respected rappers/producers in the industry.

New Jersey Rapper Newmoney Gets Nominated At 2011 UMAs For His Critically Acclaimed Mixtape "Just My Thoughts"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Hip-Hop's next breakthrough artist Newmoney is excited to announce his nomination for the prestigious 2011 Underground Music Awards in the category "Best Underground Street Album" for his critically acclaimed project "Just My Thoughts".

"I'm honored to be nominated for 'Best Underground  Street Album'. I want to congratulate all the nominees and I want to thank everybody at the Underground Music Awards for giving underground artists a platform to be recognized for their hard work," stated the New Jersey rhymespitter, who is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming mixtape "Ambitions Of A Writer". The project is hosted by DJ Don Demarco and exclusively produced by hit maker Jahlil Beats (credits: Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Meek Mill, Soulja Boy, Fabolous).

Newmoney spent his early years in Irvington, New Jersey, a small township of a little over 60,000 people in Essex County, but with a violent crime rate six times higher than the entire state. Located outside of Newark, the city was hit hard by the crack epidemic during the 1980s, the time Newmoney was born, and still struggles from the effects today. Irvington is also credited with producing some of Hip-Hop's most groundbreaking (Lords of the Underground), infamous (Tupac Shakur's “god brother” and Outlawz member Yaki Kadafi) and influential (Queen Latifah) recording acts.

Newmoney, who  grew up idolizing emcees like Jay-Z, Biggie, Big L, AZ, Redman, and DMX, is a true product of his environment. From the breakup of his family to multiple evictions and the traumatic death of his mother from cancer on Christmas morning, his life experiences have shaped the person and recording artist he is today.
