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!

If I had to make simple choice, I'd prefer to live in It's Kind of a Funny Story simply for the people who were held in it. Despite the location setting for the story, I feel as if I could very easily fall for the characters all over again, especially in an even more personal matter. But, of course, if I was  going with a straight up fantasy like everyone seems to be, I'd most likely go with a world like Dorthy Must Die series or Alice in Wonderland. Both being these magical worlds filled with quirky creatures and people, so how could you get bored? Oh, and of course let us not forget the plenty of harrowing fight scenes for freedom from the evil queens and her many brainless followers.

I would live in The Outsiders because it's a classic book. I would love to go on adventures with the gang and read books and watch movies with Ponyboy. (Because I too always believed I was the only one who enjoyed them.) I would love to open up to Johnny because he is such a kind hearted soul.
