"As the title to his debut album suggests, Goodword has a story to tell. In fact, he has quite a few to tell and he does so with an honesty and a natural talent that easily engages the listener." - Urb Magazine


Another important way to preserve the sanctity of our art form is by sticking it to the assholes that jumped in this business to make a quick buck off their fellow artist. Granted, good work in this industry from spits, to production, to artwork should have a price, but that price should come with an ample resume and should be negotiated properly.

San Francisco's own GoodWord is making an example of one of these characters, Martin. The story goes like this: GoodWord is approached by a producer online he knows only as Martin. Martin expresses interest in working with GoodWord and decides to send him a bunch of beats to choose from. GoodWord, equally interested in working with Martin, gets straight to work and bangs out a track to one of the beats. When GoodWord sends the track back to Martin his interest in working with the Bay Area MC shifts to an interest in being paid. An interest that in any ordinary situation should have been expressed from the gate. GoodWord made the decision right there to teach him and every other producer with unreal expectations and unethical business practices a lesson.

The Thanks Martin Mixtape is a big middle finger to Martin using every beat he sent GoodWord (without permission of course) and featuring a script of well known Bay Area MCs including Z-Man, Conciet, Eddie K and more. Every track is dedicated to Martin and the cover illustration depicts the otherwise unknown producer just after putting a bullet in his head. For more information about GoodWord and The Thanks Martin Mixtape, including the March 28 record-release party at 111 Minna Street in San Francisco, hit up www.myspace.com/goodword. Teaching suckers a lesson one at a time. It's a beautiful thing. - Zero Magazine


"Play Some Hip Hop" is the shit, but "Track 8"?! This cat, along with vocalist Baby Wonder and producer Steven Radison, is making some serious music, and might have a new bay classic along the way. Cocktails for West Marin. - XLR8R Magazine
