Bio

A penny is often overlooked and considered as having low value or worth. What many fail to realize is that a penny is the most valuable form of money. Not only is it the only brown coin among silver, but each is a foundation of something greater. One cannot get to a nickel- far less a $100 bill, without starting with a penny. We are all on a quest to find our worth-some more than others.

By combining this concept with his family name, Penny Shaw proves his underestimated value through his music. As a child born in Queens, New York in the 80s, he witnessed the growth of hip-hop as it was gaining momentum. Rappers such as RUN DMC and LL Cool J were some of the first to make it from his hometown. Unlike many other troubled youth which Penny grew up with, music was used as an outlet against life’s daily obstacles. He is proof that a person viewed by many as low value can grow into something priceless. He is a hip hop artist, songwriter and producer painting a picture which many of us can relate to.

It all begins with just a penny‌.
