Over the past couple of months, Goon has been making headlines and gaining the attention he deserves. Goon is an Arkansas native hailing from Little Rock, AR. After seeing him in concert on July 29th [Hem Apparel Pop-Up], I could tell he was the underground artist to watch out for in 2017. His energy in his performances was different than any other mainstream or underground artist in the scene. Over the course of a few months, Goon has released an album and 3 singles, which all gained attention by big name blogs, such as Lyrical Lemonade and Arkansas Times.

 

With the release of “Sore Loser” on August 17th, 2017, GDG* finished up his Arkansas trip and then went back to the studio in LA to finish the mixing of his album. With songs like “DeadMan” and “Shia Labeouf,” the sound was something totally different than other artists’ in today’s world. You could feel the energy in the hard hitting beats that were produced by another Arkansas Native, named Idlekid, who produced “Does It” by Kid Cudi on his recent album.

With the release of his latest single, “Everybody Still No$e,” Goon takes on the inspiration of the music group N.E.R.D and throws his own twist into it with the production of IdleKid again. The song’s dark and gritty beats sound like something you would hear in an old rock song, because of the instruments picked to be used in the song.

I am beyond excited to see what Goon has in store for us in 2018 with his amazing talents and humble behaviour with the release of his new EP, merch line and 3 new singles. Check out “Sore Loser” and his merch on iTunes and gdgmerch.com now.
