Artist Background: My name is Justin M. Howell. I grew up in East Orange,NJ and West Pittston, PA. I attended K-8th Grade in East Orange at an all music school called Washington Academy of Music. While in band we won gold in a competition in Canada when I was in 7th grade. I played the trumpet in the beginning and played baritone from 6-8th grade.
I went to High School in PA. I started rapping when I was in 6th grade after I got my hands on the Slim Shady LP. After I got the Slim Shady LP I started to write short poems and eventually learned how to maintain rhythm from listening to Eminem constantly. I was in a small group called 4G Squad then I started my own group and I called it G-Dizzle.
After I moved to PA I met my boy Thunda1Cent and Dev. We eventually became a duo Thunda1Cent and I under the name 2rue Spittas. I used to go by the name Jay Money and Mista Money and now I go by the name of Money Kushman. I’m working on my own record label called Ballyville Recordz.
