He's been a music maker for decades now.
The list of his clients is utterly impressive, reading like a who's who of artists. These include classic recordings by Redman & Method Man, LOTUG, The Outsidaz, Craig Mack, Yuk Mouth, Ice Cube, Busta Rhymes, Leela James, Runt Dawg, Brick Mob and of course Diezzle Don & Tha Govenor (Gov produced The Year Of The Independents LP, a steadfast underground classic).
But what of his own music?
Gov's full length debut takes the same unique sounds and distinctive style of Jersey hip-hop and presents it on Colossus.
The title speaks volumes about the project itself.
According to the dictionary the word 'colossus' means anything colossal, gigantic, or very powerful.
Imagine the possibilities.
On this project Big Gov Mattic sounds more determined, driven and focused with vocals delivered in a organic and raw sound similar to foundation hip hop & dance hall music.
This project, from what I've heard thus far, is as big and as powerful as its name.
