TK-N-CASH Q&A

Jan 13, 2012

TK-N-CASH just released their first EP Pre-Shock last November, and are gearing up for more. Discovered by renowned rapper Ludacris, and launched into the music scene after landing a spot touring alongside hip hop stars Diggy Simmons, Mindless Behavior and Jacob Latimore, the rap duo are ready to take on the industry and win over more fans. Find out more in their Kidzworld Q&A.

KW:  How old are you?

  • CASH: 18
  • TK: 17

KW: What made you first interested in music?

  • CASH: Growing up in our generation you couldn’t help but be influenced by music. It’s everywhere!
  • TK: For me, I lived in Hawaii for a while and it was Ludacris’ music that was being played all the time. That’s what got me interested.

KW: How did you meet? 

  • TK: We met doing shows around Augusta, Georgia.
  • CASH: Yeah, he was doing his solo thing and so was I. After a few shows we realized our styles worked well together.
  • TK: We did a song together (“Fruity Colors”) and decided to be in a group.

KW: How would you describe each other, and why do you think you work well together?

  • CASH: (laughs) He’s hyper! Like, TK is in your face.
  • TK: Yeah, and Cash is more laid back. That’s why I think we work well together, it’s kind of like Ying and Yang.
  • CASH: What I lack, he has, what he lacks, I have. We’re a team.

KW: What sets you apart from other groups on the scene?

  • CASH: We don’t TRY to be different. Being different has become this big cliché. We just do us.
  • TK: It’s okay to be different, but it’s better to be you.

KW: How were you discovered?

  • TK: We heard Ludacris was having a talent search so we performed and won. Two weeks later we were doing a showcase in front of Luda, Chaka, and Jeff, the CEOs of Disturbing Tha Peace.
  • CASH: …and after that, CAME THE DEAL!

KW: Who are some of your major influences?

  • TK: Everybody, I like a little of what everyone is doing.
  • CASH: Yeah, music is going in a good direction.

KW: What is the best piece of advice you’ve received since entering the music industry?

  • TK: Patience. Patience is everything.
  • CASH: And be prepared!

KW: What is something most fans don’t know about you?

  • TK: I’m shy… (laughs)
  • CASH: I don’t think fans know how business-minded we are. We’re young, but we also want to have some control over how things go.

KW: Are you working on an album or mixtape right now?

  • TK: Definitely, we’re always working. Right now it’s all about making G-Shock music the best it can be for the fans! Look for that in 2012.
