For years, a mourning Troy Castaneda said she wouldn’t go near her son’s music. But she couldn’t ignore his legacy.
“I woke up one day and I decided to just bring him back,” she said, adding, “He had this huge book of material.”
Johnny Castaneda aka “Johnny Ca$h” was a Richmond resident, a rising hip hop star, and a protege to the slain Mac Dre, when he was fatally shot in Vallejo on March 29, 2007.
His mother, Troy aka Mamma Ca$h, is understandably still crushed by the loss. But even in his death, Troy is proving her son’s vast potential can still be realized.
