Fa$t Money AKA F.M.N.Y. hails from the South Bronx, N.Y. but heavily molded and shaped in Harlem, N.Y. While growing up in the violent neighborhood of 730 Garden St across from the infamous projects “Twin Parks”. At a young age, F.Money saw what most don’t get a chance to see coming from the suburbs. Guns, drugs and prostitution and failed murder attempts is what he saw while most played with toys. One thing, which separates this rapper from others, is how he has never been stuck in one place for a long time. Having lived in the Bronx, Harlem, Maryland, Texas and even Germany this rapper has re-defined the word “travel”
Always being an excellent writer with poems, songs, lyrics and etc. Fa$t Money didn't begin to write rhymes until the age of 14. F. Money introduced himself to Hip-Hop at the age of 8 years old. What started out as a hobby ended up becoming a lifestyle and obsession. F. Money’s influences range from 2Pac, Jay-Z, Fabolous, Ludacris, Shyne, Kurupt and Nelly. When asked why he would put Nelly in his top influences. Fa$t Money responds by saying "Nelly makes great songs and you can't take that away from him.
Year 2001, Fa$t Money meets Harlem rapper Young Mooch. Young Mooch formed the rap group Hated World Wyde and the members are Fedel, Vars and Flyybeezie. Fa$t Money and Hated World Wyde have a deep-deep history together and have recorded many studio tracks together.

This year Fa$t Money is going to release his second project. Highly anticipated mixtape "The Domino Effect". It's been about two years since his first release and this rapper has grown so much lyrically, physically, mentally and spiritually. A college dropout for reasons different than Kanye West’s and Bill Gates. F.Money is now at the pinnacle of his life and is learning what the world is like the hard way. Nothing will stop the grind and hard work he's putting in. The lead summer single "Swaggarific" has gotten a good response from his fans and already has 1,000 plays on his myspace music page. Other strong songs to look out for are "I Gotta Have It", "Like This Like That (club banger) and "Take It Back" in which Fa$t Money talks about issues that the young generation, females and older generation face everyday while growing up in what we called "The Hood".
Fa$t Money is now looking for a manager, guidance and an outlet to dish out his futuristic lyrics. He knows he can be a force to be reckoned with if given a chance in the music industry. He already has a fanbase which grows every week he also and continues to put comedic videos up for his You tube audience. From the hood and for the hood and been to many many other hoods, burbs, avenues, blocks... this rapper is not only book smart but street smart this rapper is not only a rapper but yet a genius in a collared button up shirt and New Era fitted.
