I'm Not a Rapper! I'm a recording artist, gifted song writer and a student of music with a compelling appetite for success. A Natural entertainer, This Is What I Do!


T-Money was born Tristan Steffon Jacobs in Washington, D.C., in 1985. He grew up in Shepherdstown, and the T-Money nickname came from playing on the Jefferson High School Cougar basketball team. He would yell "money" after every shot he took for a basket.
He started writing rhymes in his junior year of high school and, along with close friend Ethan Curtis, began rapping out loud in his senior year. After graduation, he stopped rapping for a while, but resumed writing and performing in April 2009, when he got access to a home studio.
With a passion for all types of music, T-Money grew up listening to many different genres, including Billy Ray Cyrus, Elton John, the Beatles and Lil Wayne. His versatile and creative output encompasses subjects that are both biographical and imaginary, and he takes inspiration from the current scene.
T-Money's first extended play, "Unleashed," was produced to attract attention from fans and score notice abroad. He has done numerous shows and is often asked to perform at area nightclubs. He is currently working on his second extended play and is in the process of forming the Skyline Music Group, an ensemble consisting of himself and several other artists who have worked closely with him or are part of his crew.
Looking to God for the energy to work and perform, T-Money said that he feels blessed for his experiences thus far. He feels that his next project will be his most special and personal work to date. He places his future in God's hands and looks forward to more success in the hip-hop industry.
