When you think of Jamaica Queens two things come to mind… drug czars and superstars. While the south side of Jamaica is mostly known for drug czars, while the north side has the richest history of rap royalty that Hip Hop has to offer. From Run DMC, to LL Cool J ,to A Tribe Called Quest, the back blocks of Hollis, Farmers, and Linden have given birth to nothing less than Hip Hop royalty.
Enter Northxide Story: Hailing from the infamous “Farmers Rock” a landmark on the legendary Farmers Blvd, this group seamlessly bridges the gap from old to new like never before. The quartet consisting of two brothers Good Money and Jus Glo who are the sons of a GRAMMY award-winning mix engineer, and their lifetime friends Relly Band$ and BG Lotto this group is on the fast track to stardom with their debut EP “DISHILAL VOL1”.
When asked about their early beginnings in music, Good Money or “Goodie” for short, laughs and says “I dunno man… My pops always talking bout how I was conceived in a recording studio…. All I know is I’ve been rapping since like 5 yrs old. I put my first mixtape out called “Young Boss Music” at 12. Me and Jus Glo was doing shows and all that stuff back then!!! He was my little hype man feel me, years later Jus started rapping then my bro Band$ and BG started showing up to the studio and that was it! Northxide Story was born!!!
Their debut EP DISHILAL VOL1 ” is the perfect blend of beats, bars, and swag, as these four effortlessly weave in and out trading flows and points of view like true vets.
Coming from strong musical stock and a neighborhood rich in history, Northxide Story has big shoes to fill indeed, but judging from history and their debut project “DISHILAL VOL 1” this Queens-bred supergroup is off to the right track.
