with His Smash Hit "Cashing Out"
21 year-old Fulton County, GA Native John “Ca$h Out” Gibson is living by a simple but weighty mantra; “bases loaded, get ready for something epic.” Having just been signed by legendary mogul/producer/ television personality Antonio “LA” Reid and Epic records, Ca$h Out already has a couple of homeruns in his stat sheet with “I Got It” and the new anthem “Cashin’ Out.”
“DJ Spinz (acclaimed Atlanta producer and DJ) did the beat,” Ca$h explains of the origins of his crowd motivating single. “I just started humming the melody to the hook immediately. A few minutes later, I concocted the words and decided to run with it since Ca$h Out is my name. And the vibe of the record is so universal because everybody is cashing out on something whether it is with luxuries such as jewelry, cars or cribs or a necessity like a light bill or student loan. This record makes you want to go and make that money.”
“I was playing around in the studio,” he says of his stage name’s origin. “I wasn’t into the rappin’ like that back then. I always used to make it my hobby when it was nothing to do. When the trapping was going slow, I’d go to the studio. I was freestyling a verse and in one of the lines I said ‘I’m cashing out.’ One of my friends told me ‘that’s your name right there.’”
