Known for his passionate lyrics, Good son is a true “Bridge artist” that wears multiple hats. Good Son bridges those musical, cultural, age, and religious barriers that seem to stifle a lot of artists.

Heart Service served up tracks from some of the most recognized names in Christian Rap and Gospel Music such as K-drama, and Grammy nominated Marv 4 Mo beats, Darell “Red” Campbell and Mike Bowdre just to name a few. Mr. Collins Opus was his second solo release in the form of a street album/mixtape Hosted By DJ Will from Jacksonville that was aimed at the social ills of society as well as the answer for those ills, which is Christ.
