Robert Courtney AKA New Money was born and raised in Chicago, IL. He started doing music at about the age of 11. He was inspired when he heard Jay Z. That is when he fell in love with rap. His cousin and himself had rap battles against each other, doing songs by known artist and he always won. He had to work harder. While in High School he ended up having the privilege of meeting others like himself so they began to rap together and even did talent shows through high school. When he got a little older, decided to become a solo artist and started to focus more on writing his on material so it would be original songs.
Studio time came in and working with different producers. He loves old school rappers more. That’s because the old school rappers had real messages in their songs and they knew how to tell a story. Rappers like Future, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar he paid close attention to. NWA which is one of his favorite rap groups of all time because they were the hardcore rappers that stood up hard for what they believed in as black men in America.
