"Cold Cash: Interview" Interview

Q: When did you start rapping and was it at this time that you believed that rapping was something that your good at?

Q: How did you get the your stage name?
A: I've always been cool, calm, collected and about my money so when I began to take rap serious I needed a name that would stand out as well as describe me and "cold cash" was a perfect fit.

A: The first time my face touches mainstream television.

Q: If you had to perform with any one person, who would it be? And why?
A: Jay-Z. I say Jay because going into it you know that he's going to give his all and that he can hold his own on stage...without a hype man or 100 people on stage with him.

Q: Now how did you and your crew join together?
A: Da T.R.A.P Boyz Family joined together because of a dance that people were doing in the clubs here in Buffalo, NY. my friend, "Gwop Robinson came to me and said that he wanted to make a song for the dance just to see how the people would respond. We went to work on that asap. The response in the clubs was crazy. From there the movement grew up to 85 people based on the popularity of the music that was coming out of the movement. Da T.R.A.P Boyz Family was born.
Star Gang was united by Virginia rap artist/producer, Young Protege, and Virginia native by way of New Orleans, King Spook.

A: The Posterboy for Swagg.

Q: Music is a competitive place to become big, first how big would you like to get? And big or not, what do you think you can bring to the "game" that's lacking?
A: I would like to be on top of the game. Who wouldn't want to be the king? honesty. I keep it 100 on every verse. I bring good music and versatility to the industry.

Q: What is music to you? and how much of your music makes you who you are as a person?
A: Music is everything to me. It s what feeds my family. Music is a very big part of me because without it there's no telling where I would be or what I would be doing.


"Cold Cash: Up Next"

Johnny "Cold Cash" Goggins is coined as the "posterboy for swag" by just about everybody that speaks on him. He delivers his flows with such a laid back coolness that it's obvious he's been able to completely merge his midwest and upstate NY roots and compile a genuine quality brand that speaks truth in every aspect. Cold Cash grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin & later moved to Buffalo, New York. While his location was altered by 100's of miles, his passion for rapping was unmoved in his journey from extreme cold to bitter freezing.

Informing the massed on Cold Cash is extra easy for me, not only was I privileged to grow up with him like he was my big brother, I also noticed that he had an unparalled grind to many of the folks we ran with that claimed that spitting rhymes would be more than a hobby. When JG said it, he meant it! Yeah, he'll forever be JG to me, but I respect the artist that Cold Cash has grown to BEcome.

Dont'w worry about it if you're unfamiliar with Cold Cash's name or current credits; he continues to BE a mixtape machine, spitting out 6 mixtapes to date, and no doubt in the lab brewing up another dose. "I love the mixtape circuit. It gives us guys without the big name backing and the the large budgets to get as much exposure as you put in."

Cold Cash is the remdy for the mixtape world!He refuses to sit stagnant due to his locale having a smaller market. Cold Cash is ambitiously securing each and every opportunity thrown his way from jumping on tour to hitting the showcase rounds. Cold Cash strongly believes in a grass roots formula and doesn't mind being his own right hand man as long as it gets the job done. "Man I write my own rhymes, mix & do my own beats. I'm my own manager & I do my own graphic designs. Whatever i need, I have right here in house."

With the go get it mentality that Cold cash contains, it's only a matter or miliseconds before he gets the BIG break that he's seeking, but until he does, you can be assured that he's having fun giving the fans as much of his swagged out lyrical uproar as possible. - BE Entertained Magazine
