Born Shamann Cooke, in Richmond, Virginia's southside Shamann grew up in a household with his four brothers in Chippenham Apartments. Shamann was always creative and had a deep passion for making music after becoming a fan of hip hop pioneers. After spending time honing his skills he quickly rose to local stardom through rapping, dj'ing, and becoming highly sought after for his production. Shamann and a few other local artists formed a company, Close Range Entertainment and their group started making a lot of noise throughout the city which quickly caught the attention of the music industry. Parrish "PMD" Smith of EPMD came across Shamann and saw the potential and invited him to New York to assist in developing his talent. While in New York, Cooke worked with Method Man, Redman, Das Efx, K-Solo, and many more. Parish later introduced Shamann to T.I.'s Grand Hustle knowing that they were a supportive team and would help take his career to the next level. After deciding to stop rapping and focus 100% on producing Shamann took on the moniker Beat Billionaire and began working with the biggest artists in hip hop.
