Ramone Johnson, better known by his stage name Cashis (stylized as Ca$his), is an American rapper who was born and raised in Chicago, but moved to Irvine, California. He was most notably featured on the [l=Shady Records] album Eminem Presents: The Re-Up with [a=Eminem] and the record label, and released The County Hound EP in 2007.
In August 2011 on his mixtape Roof Top Vol. 1, in the intro, Cashis revealed that he was leaving Shady Records, but is remaining with Bogish Brand Entertainment. His solo debut album The Art of Dying after many delays, was released independently on October 30, 2012, but failed to chart. On October 15, 2013, he released his second studio album The County Hound 2, which contained significant production from Eminem and was supported by five retail singles.
Cashis first got into rapping by freestyling with his cousin at the age of 12. At the age of 14, he went to the studio for the first time and professionally recorded his first song. Around age 17, he got serious about rapping and would go around the Los Angeles and Orange County area participating in rap battles under the name "Lil Ramone"
By 2004, Cashis was regarded as the "rap king of Orange County" and attracted the attention of Shady Records A&R, Dart Parker, who signed him after hearing his mixtape, Stars With Stripes. Cashis’s introduction to the masses, however, wouldn’t come until 2006 when he appeared alongside Eminem, 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks on "You Don't Know" the first single from the platinum-selling Shady Records compilation, Eminem Presents: The Re-Up, performing solo on the songs "Everything Is Shady" and "Talkin' All That". His solo track "Talkin' All That" was praised by Complex as an album standout.
