Cashis

Ramone Johnson, better known by his stage name Cashis, is an American rapper who was born and raised in Chicago, but moved to Irvine, California. He is signed to Eminem's Shady Records. He was featured on the Shady album Eminem Presents: The Re-Up and released the County Hound EP in 2007. In 2011 he plans to release a retail mixtape called Shady Loyalty 1st and a full lenghth LP called Youth in Asia.

Cashis formed a group, The Renegadez, with H-Bone and Monique (also the mother of one of his eleven children) and they sent a demo tape to Eminem's Shady Records label hoping for a record deal.

By 2004, Cashis was regarded as the "rap king of Orange County" and attracted the attention of Shady Records A&R, Dart Parker, who signed the young talent after hearing his mixtape, Stars With Stripes. Cashis’s introduction to the masses, however, wouldn’t come until 2006 when he appeared alongside Eminem, 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks on You Don't Know the first single off the platinum-selling Shady Records compilation, Eminem Presents: The Re-Up. His first solo release was the charting County Hound EP, in May 2007. The County Hound reached number 106 on The Billboard 200 and 37 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

Cashis has 10 children, his grandmother and two siblings in his care. He linked with producer Rikanatti and rappers H-Long and Monique (also the mother of his oldest daughter) to form the Renegadez. The crew enjoyed local success until tragedy struck in 1999 when Monique was murdered.

Despite the loss to Monique, Cashis tried to carry on but was hit with another blow when he was arrested for parole violation and had to serve a short sentence. Once released, he reunited with the The Renegadez and refocused on music.
