Last year, 21-year-old Atlanta rapper Cash Out released his breakthrough single “Cashin¬†Out” which helped him get the recognition as a mainstream rapper. Back then, he had no idea that the song would become a big hit, so fast. The DJ¬†Spinz-produced¬†track hits No. 1 on Billboard’s Rap Song chart after 11 weeks and it spends its third week atop the mainstream R&B/Hip¬†Hop tally. The single also holds at No. 2 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. The single has sold over 303,000 downloads, according to Nielsen¬†SoundScan, and¬†gathered over more than 10 million views on YouTube since November.¬†Below are some¬†excerpts¬†from the¬†Billboard¬†article:

I definitely didn’t expect that to happen, but when it’s a great record, it grows in that way,” says Ca$h Out, born John Gibson. There’s something about my music that people are really liking. Every time I do these shows, people know all the words. They’re tuned in to my songs.”

It caught a wave and people really accepted it,” Spinz says, noting the song’s presence in clubs as a foreshadowing of success.When something goes that crazy in the clubs of Atlanta, which is a real vital market in the urban community, the world is going to get behind that.”

“Ca$h Out’s team has had a difficult time keeping up. His mom and manager, Mama Ca$h, explains that the sudden popularity has made it hard to brand the man behind the music. “The song is bigger than him,” she says. “We’re rebranding him now, because it moved so fast that no one had a chance to brand him. He definitely does not have just one song.”
