DJ Cash Money


With over three decades of experience, DJ Cash Money (born Jerome Hewlett) is a Philadelphia- based American turntablist, hip-hop artist, and record producer who became one of the most prolific DJs in hip hop history.

DJ Cash Money’s music journey began in the streets of Philadelphia as a dancer travelling from block party to block party in search of the spotlight. He took the name Cash Money from his nickname on the basketball court as he was known to have the “money” shot. While being part of a dance group, “Sonic Wave”, he made mixed tapes for the group’s choreography and became a major player on the mix tape and DJ scene in his high school and in his Southwest Philadelphia neighbourhood. However, it was not until he heard the sounds from DJ Grandmaster Flash that sealed his decision to make music his career.

A cultural icon in the DJ world today, DJ Cash Money is best known for his pioneering scratch techniques, lightning speed and fierce musicality on the turntables. Artistic creations such as the Transformer Scratch and the DJ Cash Money Turntable Style Position are just two of his most famous inventions for the DJ world. Over the years, he has revolutionized the technology for DJs and the manufacturing of turntables, which has since earned him the title as the first DJ to be inducted into Technics DJ Hall of Fame. He is also known to be the only DJ to have won all three DJ championships for the New Music Seminar and the DMC DJ Championships.

In the early 90s DJ Cash Money began producing tracks and remixes for several top hip-hop and pop artists such as P.M Dawn, The Roots, Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip. In 2004 he performed at the 2004
Summer Olympics in Greece. In 2007 he received a sneaker deal with Puma that produced the “DJ
Cash Money YO-MTV Raps Limited Edition Puma Sneaker”.

DJ Cash Money continues to tour around the world and stays relevant by keeping his ear close to the streets and by studying current trends in music.
