Young Rapper

MattyB first became interested in hip hop music[/kwlink] at the age of five. He said that he was drawn to the beats and right away wanted to take dance lessons! When his cousin Mars, a 19-year-old rapper, moved in with his family, he listened to Mars’ music and rapped his lyrics to him. Matty pestered his cousin to help him write a rap and make a video so they finally did it. In it’s first week on YouTube, MattyB’s rap video “Eenie Meenie” had over 500,000 views and made the front page!

Overnight Fame

He’s covered hits by stars like Willow Smith, Ke$ha, Rihanna and Justin Bieber. He even rapped “Like a G6”, complete with a music video where he wore purple shades, a leather jacket and danced around in front of a fancy car! He wrote his own lyrics to Ke$ha’s song “We R Who We R” and even made a music video making fun of Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” song! Funnily enough, Justin Bieber was also discovered on YouTube! Check him out!

Music Career

His mom says he’s still to young to tour or make a record but he’s definitely going to keep making videos for his popular YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/MattyBRaps). He has almost 200,000 subscribers to his channel and has over 4 million hits to each of his songs - not bad for someone who hasn’t even hit the fifth grade yet! He’s taking voice lessons, acting and dancing lessons at the moment so keep your eyes peeled for MattyB on MTV!

Fun Facts!

  • He’s taking voice lessons from the same voice coach that taught Justin Bieber and Usher!He has two brothers - Joshua, who loves to draw and paint and Blake, who’s a drummer!
  • When asked on his YouTube channel by a fan if he’d rather have $1 million dollar or a girlfriend, he said he said girflriend!

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)
