R.I.P Tha Govener a.k.a Gov Mattic

R.I.P  Tha Govener ...

"Gov Mattic, also known as Tha Governer, got into the hip-hop scene early on as a member of the local Newark, New Jersey hip-hop collective Revolutionary Party of Terrace. The group formed in the late 1980's and included such up-and-comers as Redman and several rappers that would become part of the group Lords Of The Underground. In the 1990's Gov Mattic teamed up with another local Newark hip-hop artist to form the group Diezzle Don & Tha Govener. The duo released two albums, 1995 (Year Of The Independent) (1995) and "Hell Up In Newark" (1998). Gov Mattic continued to appear on underground mixtape releases and was known more for his production work."


  1. Rest in peace to one of the best that ever did it. I still play "Hell Up In Newark" and "Lost They Mind" all the time....

  2. Nuff Respect to Big Gov Matic...
