Austin hip-hop artist featured on FOX's 'Lethal Weapon'

On Tuesday night, a native Austin hip-hop artist is getting to showcase his music on a national scale.

One of his songs is being featured on an episode of "Lethal Weapon" right here on Fox.

"Get my Money" is a hip-hop track Mark "Boss" Martinez recorded in 2010.

"What the song is basically about, it's a transition in my life.  And the transition in my life was 'I wasn't always perfect, I'm not perfect, We're all human, we make mistakes, I made a lot of mistakes in my life.  So it's basically choosing the street life over and transitioning over to my family life," Martinez said.

Martinez, born and raised in East Austin is the creative force behind Intense Entertainment.  He says it's more than just a music label.  They also volunteer and help local schools.

"Our movement has always been focused on the communities and the kids and that's what this whole label is about, it's just expanded to so much more now," he said.

Recently, Martinez says a film and TV music supervisor came across "Get my Money" and reached out for permission to use it.

"I thought it was a scam at first but when we looked up everything we were like 'no it's pretty legit' you know.  We sent the song out, they sent us all the information, the contract over, signed it out and now we're here," Martinez said.

The song is being featured on Tuesday night's episode of FOX's "Lethal Weapon".

"I was a big fan of the movies growing up in the '80s and then to watch them say that Fox was going to do the remake of Warner Bros' Lethal Weapon, I was like 'this better be good!'" Martinez said.

The show does deliver, Martinez says.  And he's having a watch party Tuesday night to hear his song on national television.

"I was...I was speechless, I was beyond amazed and I can only say that it was God that helped this happen," Martinez said.

"Lethal Weapon" airs on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. (CT) on FOX 7 Austin.
