Goodtimes X GarageTM brand and record label, based in Houston,TX was established in 2007. Three friends in a garage, listening to beats on a laptop, turned into multiple collaborations on the front line and behind the scenes with artists Felo and Yung Redd. Goodtimes X GarageTM is home to R&B / Alternative artist Abe Arnold aka ABXX. Most recently known for his collaborations with DJ Chose “ Hell Yeah“ and Ty Dolla $ign “Wake N Bake,” which received over 300,000 streams on Apple Music and over 1 Million streams on YouTube overnight.
ABXX, like many artists, became infatuated with Juice WRLD and his message regarding drug ad- diction and loneliness…“we shared the same struggle.” ABXX linked up with Brxndead, a rap artist from Boston MA, who had been collaborating with Juice WRLD at the time. After a lot of blood sweat and tears, ABXX, Brxndead and Juice WRLD poured their hearts out together on 3 records. However, due to the tragic and untimely death of Juice WRLD in December 2019, the records were never released.
Back burner on high heat, ABXX was approached by Kelby Dishman a.k.a Hueston Heffner, who had a very new and different strategy. Together, they would create NFT’s and mint the records, putting them up for auction and donating a portion of the proceeds to Juice WRLD’s mothers’ Carmela Wallace’s foundation for drug addiction, the “Live Free 999 Fund”.
In collaboration with Los Angeles based studio W(AN)T©, “BMV” is the first of three unreleased ex- clusive Juice WRLD songs that will be offered as NFT’s to the public for auction via Foundation. The winner of this auction will be the only person to own this song, as Goodtimes X GarageTM will not be releasing “BMV” on any platforms in the future. The artwork for “BMV” was developed by artist Ian Mull and W(AN)T© Studios in collaboration with Goodtimes X GarageTM.
