HoodGoodGoodie / Bio

HoodGoodGoodie aka SlimGoodie bka DymeSack: young, black, intelligent, creative, caring- and yes she's a rapper started on the scene at the age of thirteen. Growing up in the streets of East Palo Alto, Californ-ia she learned quick that you have to have tough skin to survive. Survivor of a broken home due to drugs and domestic violence HoodGoodGoodie looked to rappers such as E-40, Nas, Foxy Brown, Tupac, Scarface, and the Luniz for a peace of mind. Now in this day in age she looks to her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for peace of mind, not giving a damn at the stereo types or characteristics that anyone thinks she should be as a "Female Rapper". Back in the early 90's HoodGoodie started out rapping to the sounds of her brother beat boxing. She and her grade school crew ust to get out of school, have sleep overs and try to write raps. They had made up their own formula to rhyming that sparked interest for HoodGoodie that never vanished. She participated in a couple of live shows with her high-school best-friend "MarieKaine" (singer) and was sold that she loved being on stage performing. Not really focused or visualizing the bigger picture at the time HoodGoodie went through many trials and tribulations that eventually lead her to moving to Las Vegas, Nevada Dec 1999 for a new start. She continued to use music as a out let to relieve stress, still not focused on her gift. It was in 2002 that she met Shawnessa (singer) through a mutual friend who also rapped. She invited HoodGoodie to a studio session one day along with another young lady who rapped. They came up with a track that day that was passed on. As an outcome in 2004-2005 she grouped up with 3 young ladies to form the group called "HEAT". They did several performances for an opportunity to be signed to Sony Records, turns out the people "executives" who showed up to these different events were actually ex-employees of the label who really didn't have the connections to move forward. The group fell apart and had it's Destinys Child moment before anything Great could be accomplished. One rapper and singer went one way, and one singer and rapper went their own way. Going by the name of DymeSack at the time, HoodGoodie and Shawnessa aka ShawnyRed broke off into their own duo team "Deuces Wild" and continued to try to succeed, but decided to take a different direction. They decided to go completely independent and started their own record label "Tha Coldest Heat Records". They weren't sure how to go about managing things, eventually ShawnyRed took a break from the scene while HoodGoodie continued to chase the dream. She knew that ShawnyRed was down for whatever, whenever, and that she was only taking a break. Due to HoodGoodie relocating to the south in 2008 the two ladies have not been able to link back up with each other ~ but in between time ShawnyRed has revamped herself with a new name ~(sorry cannot share artist wants it to be a surprise) and new music, soon to be released. Considered the cream of the crop, specializing in being an artist that performs, writes, and is the dedicated creative mind behind herself, HoodGoodGoodie Refuses to Not BE Heard-  she will continue to strive to the top!!! Co-Founder of HoodGoodieGirl MuSic & Tha Coldest Heat Records "It's on" That's why She's In A League of Her Own- She has no time for fake sh** and broken promises.
