Megaphone to the Microphone

Comrade’s music comes directly from being a youth organizer and activist in high school. His political frustration came out on the megaphone at rallies and through the microphone in the booth. Comradery is the movement Comrades and Comrets around the world can relate to so Comrade is a brother to the struggle developing a Soundtrack for the Global Movement. 

Born in PG County MD and raised in Baltimore City, Chris “COMRADE” Goodman stands as a change agent in and out of the booth. Since early high school COMRADE has been recognized as a young leader committed to empowering young people to stand up against the system that oppress them. His militant rhymes grew from his political frustration as an organizer of the Baltimore Algebra Project. He has put his freedom on the line in several occasions for the movement and in three of those protests COMRADE was arrested. But this is what COMRADE stands for and many people understand and award him for the work he’s done as a freedom fighter organizing student strikes, sit-ins, and marches etc.
