MattyB is the real deal at only 11 years old. He reminds me of Mackelmore the way he slings rhymes with such conviction and meaning and the way he pairs his rap verses with a soulful chorus from Maddi Jane. This kid is going places and I can't wait to see what's next!

MattyB admits that he hasn't personally experienced what he rapps about in the song 'Turned Out the Lights' but he does know kids who have. He is using his voice and talents to inspire and encourage anyone battling with abuse or neglect to stay strong and be positive.
