I grew up in the Bay. Daly City area at first, then as most of the "Feenoys" did in the early 80's, we migrated to the Pinole-Hercules-Vallejo area, but I always came back to the 650 area. Back then, it was still 415 because there weren't a lot of phones out there, like we have now (including cellphones).

Gee Money's Bio
Back then, it was still 415 because there weren't a lot of phones out there, like we have now (including cellphones). I was pretty much blessed to have an Uncle that had a gas/repair station to teach me how to work on my 1976 Monte Carlo in Daly City, where I chilled at most of the times to keep my ride moving, meet all my uncle's "kababayans", who were the relatives of all the DJ's around the Daly City area. (Shots out to the Jefferson and Phillip Burton High alumni's out there!) Thanks to that beat up ol' gas/repair station and my Uncle who tolerated the Daly City weather (love you, Uncle), I met all those DJ's who dropped me their mixtapes and invited me to many of the DJ Battles like "Destiny" and "Imagine" (that was the place to be).
I've been to a lot of places and to be honest, there is no other place in the world I could ever call home but the BAY!!!
During my high school years, with the flat top hair cut, the sides long enough to blow dry it back close to my head and reinforcing it to stay with my trusty blow dryer and cans of Aqua Net and hair gel to blend the sides perfectly with the long hair in the back, I'd use up almost an hour in the morning to get my hair all perfect just to put on my corduroy cap pimpin' the words "Los Angeles Raiders" to match my black fits which were my personally-pegged Levi's shrink-to-fit 501 black jeans, Vaurnet t-shirt, and IOU Club Jacket. Oh yeah... And you gotta pimp the White Reebok high tops to make it look like you were wearing ski boots. You all feel me on this?
All of you DJ's on Mixcrate.com and most especially the great peeps that started Mixcrate.com, I'm thanking you all from the bottom of my heart for sharing your amazing talents on the World Wide Web. You have brought me back to "GOOD TIMES" that I cherish and am blessed to have experienced.
One thing all of you who have wasted a couple of minutes reading this have to agree with me on is that this is probably the best website out there regardless if you are a DJ or just someone like myself that enjoys and respects what all you DJ's do out there to get us up on the dance floor, thump our Cerwin Vega's in our homemade boxes in the back of our trunks, or keep us company while we head out at night with our homies playing your masterpiece creations.
And before I go... A shot out to my brother from another mother... DJ Ready Rock. Thank you for allowing me to come out to your gigs, dj'ing my gigs, watch you cut it up visciously, create something ordinary into something extraordinary, and lastly... introducing me to MIXCRATE.COM! And a quick shot out to my cuzzin Money from Vegas and my godbrother Money from Dublin... "Stay Money, MONEY!"
