Before Governor, there was none. The streetwise southern gentleman who constantly refers to himself as "country boy" is, without question, in a lane that is all his. A lane paved by his silver tenacity, golden delivery and platinum presence. There was absolutely no way that the man born Governor Washington wouldn't make it; it was just a matter of time.
It started in Charles City, Virginia, when a young and eager Governor graduated from high school. Although Governor, who is thoroughly proficient at playing the saxophone, trumpet and percussion, was accepted into the much-coveted Berklee College of Music, he opted to form an R and B outfit a la Jodeci, named Case Closed. Yearning for success, the group headed to New York City. Unsurprisingly, their quest was unfortunately short-lived.
The group disbanded, and Governor went back to Virginia. Built for combat, the resilient Governor quickly returned to the Big Apple hoping to get a bite of the action this time. Action, though, was slow to materialize. In the meantime, Governor turned to nine-to-fiving and hustling to stay afloat.Make Governor Playlist
