In the 2nd episode of Down in the 903, Myzta Hamblen talks with FASTBash winner Jae Money Guapo about his influences, his sound and his goals for the future!!

(Courtesy of https://www.jmguapoo.com/)

Jae Money Guapoo was born December 11, 1989 in Longview, Texas as James Ryan Campbell III. The Hip-Hop artist, Guapoo started performing on the church stage at the age of six years old as a drummer and tenor voice in the choir. The experience gained sparked his passion to perform on the big stages as a Hip-Hop artist, and continues to keep him relaxed when he performs today. Guapoo grew up as an athlete and had to hide his music artistry. His mother had no tolerance for the Hip-Hop music and culture presented, which lead to her strict actions banning Guapoo from listening to the music that truly inspired his artistry.

I was born and raised in the Piney Woods of deep East Texas. I grew up with my younger brother and two parents who loved us. I loved playing sports but I loved hunting and fishing even more. Growing up I wore out a lot of boots, waders, fishing reels, and truck tires hunting deer at my family’s ranch, ducks in the sloughs, and fishing with my buddies. I don’t know how you can ask for much more than that…
