P-Money Profile

aka Peter Wadams

“Watching groups like Public Enemy and Run DMC, I didn’t really see how I could do the vocals. I was like, ‘How do you rap?’ I just thought, if I could be involved, I’d rather be the cool guy at the back playing the records. He’s not up front, but he’s very important to the group.”

Peter Wadams, AKA P-Money, is recalling the inspiration that has seen him play “the cool guy at the back” across the many phases of his career. It’s seen him establish his name as a battle DJ, produce records for Scribe, Che Fu, David Dallas and Aaradhna, and build Dirty Records from the ground up with Kog Transmissions, to its amalgamation with Dawn Raid Entertainment under the Frequency Media Group banner.
