At the age of 30, he had the will of brass to start all over again. Direction law school with in her school bag the gold record won once by his rap group. Challenge: Serge Money became a lawyer.
He receives in his cabinet, Uptown, at a stone’s throw from the Champs-Elysées. In the “coin salon” of his big desk, a small humidor, the Moët & Chandon, flutes and (good) Japanese whisky. ” As if the man, almost 40 years, applied to cultivate credibility bling-bling. Gray suit well-cut, big watch and eye-catching look, Serge Money tells his two lives, rapper to success then lawyer, and the thread that unites: “i rise to the autres”. ”
The history of Mr. Money (this isn’t a nickname) begins at Affery, in the South of Côte d’Ivoire. His first candle barely blown, the family settled in France, at Ivry on Seine South of Paris, where he still lives. In high school, Serge is a student in the average. Her parents divorced “très tôt or very early” and his father ” made sacrifice” to raise four children alone. With his friends, “Des guys rather structures”, free time is divided between “foot and music”. “I was not looking for trouble, I had no bad company but, in these circles there, there is always a provocations”, he explains. “Tu feel spied upon, they are character,”he said about the police. And all this, “ca raises the vocations”. ” And the first rhymes.
At the age of 20, Serge Money is “Cochise”. ” He RAPS in a collective – the Mafia Trece – alongside his buddies Awax, A. Speak or G-Wild and two future best seller top 50: Yannick and Diam’s. With the latter, he RAPS in Duet on “i argues for the rue” the first success of the Mafia Trece, which he wrote the lyrics. ” “On finds fast at the foot of the wall and no solution out his gun, but I have sworn to carry conviction of all these jures”, chant, like a premonition, the future lawyer. ” -‘I plead for the street’- “Rap and lawyer, there is a real continuity.

While the record companies are looking for new Daft Punk (side house) and the next Doc Gynéco (on the side of rap), the Mafia Trece falls into the hands of Sony and touches a lot of money. Money wins law school after his degree and is dedicated to touring, the second album and the workshops of “bien payés writes” assigned everywhere in France. ” At that time, “la Mafia” turn looping on Skyrock. ” But from the second album, the collective is unraveling. Serge writing workshops are more rare. “I finds a form of precariousness.——” and finally, the benches of the College. ” “Les the hardest years of my life. We are left with very young students in an infantilisants TD. Raise your hand to speak and when you had an intense career, it is complicated “.”
Five years later, Serge picks up the bar, then there’s a few months, this honorary title that brings back beautiful business: Secretary of the conference.The “magazine urbain” Streetpress.com dedicates a portrait: “On found Cochise and he wears the robe”. Who has known success and then crossing the desert. He saw his dream fall and he has never let go. This is what determines what it is today ‘ hui “, said his best friend and Assistant Monique Day (it is not a nickname). Who is still recovering in question. He’s very humble, I blame him often.
