"More laid-back, but just as lyrical as his TUS counterparts, J. Good’s smooth flow is somewhere between Lupe Fiasco and Murs."
"Sacramento isn’t known for their rappers but with the amount of talent on the rise that might change in the near future. Without a doubt T.U.S member J.Good is contributing to the Sac Town hip-hop revolution."
"TCP: How have you seen your name growing, both in California and all over the nation? ‘Look On The Brightside’ definitely bounced around the blogosphere & has gotten good play. J. Good: It’s still a little weird for me hearing my name in different places. It’s most def exciting though. I’m definitely appreciative to everyone who has taken the time out to listen to ‘Look on the Brightside’."
“In lyrically-dense bars, J. affirms his drive to succeed and his commitment to classic hip-hop culture (“...an old soul, my spirit is high-tops and gold ropes.”), before taking a look back at his formative years as a project youth (“...speaking on our days on section 8 / Let the lesson say we got stronger the less we ate.”). Through it all, he maintains an unflappably chill delivery that makes for perfect vibe-out material. ”
“What’s more, us Midwesterners can finally listen to a breezy, sun-kissed joint like Cali So(u)l, the Booth debut from Sacramento representative J. Good, without turning green with envy. ”
“We previously featured J.Good when he leaked “The Rush”, one of several killer tracks on his newly released Look On The Brightside album. As that track indicated, the majority of the record boasts laid-back tunes from the Sacramento-based rapper, whose music is made for the sunnier days that are soon approaching. But even if it’s drizzling and colder outside right now, you can sit back with Good’s verses, which include waxing on his aspirations (“Crazy Dreamin”), how to move forward in life (“Rolling Stone”), and questionable females (“2000 Days”).”
“I’ve been patiently waiting for this project to get released; judging by the leaks I’ve already posted, it’s a no brainer – this shit knocks. J.Good is a competent MC, who isn’t afraid to speak on whatever he’s got on his mind."”
"This up and comer goes on a lyrical tirade through 21 tracks of hip hop"
"J.Good, another example of the Hip-Hop coming out of Sacramento. While I've been hard on folks dropping projects with more than 10 tracks, his 21 tracks do deliver."
