PayCheq - Artist/Writer/Producer.
I've been Playing guitar since the age of 9, Piano/Keys since 16, writing and composing songs since grade school. Started recording solo songs and making beats at the age of 15...In 2001, the group CASH UP FRONT was formed, for the past 8 years, C.U.F. has been writing, recording, performing and putting 100% dedication to producing quality music continuing the mission many left behind when hip hop's valued idols and leaders passed on. As time continues, C.U.F. has grown and experienced many of the ups and downs of the entertainment business and is open to anything, to work with anyone who's REALLY doing it. Networking is the key.
