South Memphis native Co Cash is buzzing by releasing his latest project, F.A.C.T.S, that has had the city going crazy. He was recently on a tour with fellow Memphian Yo Gotti for The Fans via Tidal. “GoLdEn TicKET” rapper had a fire performance and it is what we needed with the release of his project. We caught up with the “TaKe tWo” artist and discussed about his experiences while on tour, his album, F.A.C.T.S., relationship with Tay Keith and more.
RESPECT.: What was your experience like while touring with Yo Gotti on the four shows?
It was very good to experience and feeling to different crowds. I was testing the waters.
RESPECT.: Have you gotten any new fan base since the show?
Yes, the fans knew about me and was vibing to my music.
RESPECT.: What is one song you like to perform in front of your fans? Why?
I would say “Cash Day.” Everyone loves the song. The song is a vibe and it shows how my flow is and how the beat switches up.
RESPECT.: How did you get the artist name?
It was my nickname. I originally went by Rico Dinero and thought it was too much so I had changed it the end of 2017 to Co Cash. Co is part of my real name and cash is self explanatory.
RESPECT.: With your recent visual “TaKe tWo,” what was the concept of the video?
It was a straightforward and wanted to match the energy with the track. I felt like my fans needed to see me rap.
RESPECT.: Define RESPECT.
Giving credit to where it’s due.
RESPECT.: Why did you name the project? What was the reason or message behind it?
F.A.C.T.S is a mixtape whose title stands for FUCK A CRITIC I’m THE SHIT. That’s the message I try to convey in all my music. Don’t worry about other people’s opinions and listen to people hating—you know what you’re doing. I wanted it to be a positive message.
RESPECT.: What is your relationship with TayKeith? I seen he produced most of the project?
We are brothers. We have been working together since 2013. He has done most of my production of all my projects. We met on social media. Back then, everyone knew I was rapping in the city and he was making beats. He reached out to me, and ever since then, we have worked together.
RESPECT.: With Memphis being on the scene in regards to music, do you think it will be bigger in the next year or two?
Yes, the numbers shows different creatives coming out of Memphis. It is growing so fast and we are creating a fan base within the city.
RESPECT.: What song would you play to a fan who hasn’t heard your music and why?
“TaKe tWo” or “no COMPETiTiON” because you can listen to how I am coming by the style and message of the music.
RESPECT.: What will be next for you?
There will be singles and an album that will be on the way later in the year. I will be performing in Memphis later in the month.
