A penny is one of the most disregarded forms of currency in our world today. They are often overlooked and considered as having low value or worth. What many people fail to realize is that a penny is the most valuable form of money. Not only is a penny the only brown coin among silver, but each is a foundation- the beginning. One cannot get to a nickel- far less a $100 bill, without a penny. We are all on a quest to find our own worth- some more than others.
Combining the concept of a penny and keeping the roots of his family name, a star emerged. Born in Queens, New York in the 1980s when hip hop was just gaining momentum, Penny Shaw developed a love for the craft. Rappers such as RUN DMC and LL Cool J were some of the first to make it from Penny's hometown. Unlike many other troubled youth which he grew up with, Penny Shaw used music as an outlet against life's daily obstacles. He is proof that a person viewed by many as having low worth can grow into something priceless. By combing his talents as a hip hop artist, songwriter and producer, the picture he paints is one of many colors and also one which many of us can relate to..
