Houston's Best Kept Secret Revealed
"Lyrics like medicine, one dose your head a spin
Just like Excedrin,rhyme like a Veteran" -
Godwon(Hate Me Now freestyle)
If you don't know by now that Houston's best kept secret is none other than Godwon, then you're either new to the Rap scene or too busy listening to Nelly and Chingy. In fact, if the Black Eyed Peas is your idea of true Hip Hop, kindly exit this page and save yourself the trauma. On the other hand, if you love good music, sit back, relax and get to know the 2004 Winner of Interscope Records/Showtime "Next Episode" Battle.
Godwon, a tense variation of his real name(Godwin) leaped into the rap game by battling his way through, crushing each and everyone that stood in his way. I first heard of the brother in the summer of 2004 when my homeboy who was working at Wafflehouse told me he'd served Godwon at the restaurant. My boy was smart enough to snatch up a copy of Goddy's tape, which I initially dismissed as "another nigga with a mike and a dream". I was converted to a Godwonian after one powerful listening session. Although, rumors that Godwon has been flirting with major labels such as Def Jam, J Records & Shady Records are more disturbing than Michael Jackson's recent court verdict, there's no doubt at all that he's secured the endorsement of Houston Rap heavyweight Scarface. (He appeared in Geto Boy's video for The G Code)
Don't make the stupid mistake of limiting Godwon to the category of a battle rapper, incapable of making album-worthy joints. His sound is unique and shockingly versatile. Devoid of the conventional crystal-clutching, booty-shaking, grill-displaying down south/H-Town rap, Goddy is in an isolated zone. You'd think he's never owned a radio before and if he did, that boombox is most possibly a certified dust-collector. As if to confirm this assertion, he declared on his message board that he "doesn't listen to other people's stuff" in order to keep his sound original. Preaach brother!
