Cashless Society

Cashless Society

Profile:
Formed in 1999 and originally consisting of Snazz D (Julian Du Plessis), Draztik (Dave Balsher), X-Amount (Kwezi Ngcakani), Black Intellect (Jerry Kai Lewis), Fat Free (Salim Mosidinyane) & DJ IQ (who left the crew, when he moved back to Queens, NY), the group made later acquisitions of other like minded MC's Criminal (Alfred Chirwa), Tizeye (Tyrone Phillips) & Gemini (Thabiso Mofokeng) (the later is also a member of the Groundworks Crew), to form the group well known as Cashless Society.

Signed to Unreleased Records and based out of Johannesburg, South Africa, the original members hail from both South Africa and Botswana. Their musical influence grew with the groups expansion to include members from both Malawi and Sierra Leone. The name Cashless Society sums up the crew via a double meaning: cashless, as in the plastic economic future of the modern world and cashless as in Africa, currently the poorest of the poor.

In 2000 upon Bobbito's visit to South Africa, the group released their first internationally distributed single "Blazetha Breaks" which was licensed through Fondle 'Em Records as the A-Side to a split 12" which featured Mizchif's "Place For A Wife" on the B-Side.

In 2001 they released their follow up EP "Blaze Tha Breaks" which featured the video to the underground cult-classic.

2003 saw the release of Cashless Society's first full-length album "African Raw Material Vol. 1" on Unreleased Records, which was distributed by BMG Records Africa and featured guest appearences by Tumi, Mizchif and Masauko of Blk Sonshine.

Currently the members of Cashless Society are concentrating on their solo efforts and other group projects.
