He ultimately decided to go by the moniker “Money” before changing it to “Mooney”. The name change came from him recording in GHYL Ent.

While with GHYL Ent. Mooney completed his first mixtape under Grammy winning producer Bob Ebeling . He quickly gained a large local following by, distributing his mixtape through social networks and by selling them via cd. He also gained a reputation for his energetic yet self-conscience brand of hip-hop that could influence any and everyone. The experience made him more confident as an artist in which, he began to consider a career as an aspiring rapper.

He performed as a solo artist, before later joining and later co-producing “Star Money Gang” a local rap group in which he collaborated with them on their “Fly Session” and “Arrogant American” mixtapes. While with SMG, Mooney wrote songs for the band and other artist throughout VA as well.
