Kaz Money was born and raised in the United Arab Emirates to a father of Armenian/ Syrian heritage and a mother of Italian/ Eritrean heritage. Being raised in such a family exposed him to different cultures making it very easy to adapt to different situations and develop an understanding and appreciation of the differences between these cultures.
Kaz developed a love for hip hop from the first time he was exposed to a RUN DMC track in the 80’s and continued to grow with the art form to its current condition. Educated in Canada Kaz managed to develop his skills as an MC and start recording his own music. Named Kaz Money by a close friend because “Everything he does is straight money!”
Kaz has also featured on International RnB sensation, Karl Wolf’s track “Yalla Habibi” and has toured with him and opened for 50 Cent. His latest solo release was titled “The Ridicule/ The Opposition” and the Recipe On The Mic Documentary, which is set to release soon, follows the 3 days to its release in 2011.
