You heard it here first… Some fresh out the gate illness from newcomer MATTE. Debut single from the London lyricist ‘Mining’ features the newcomer drawing on underground influences to detail digging within self in search of strength and purpose. For a first tune this one sounds seriously assured. In a scene full of rappers desperate to jump out the gate, MATTE has clearly been honing his craft. Writing bars from young but putting musical aspirations aside for a period to deal with those challenges that life can throw at you, 2021 marks the emergence of a grown MC. Some real truth buried in here as well from the start, “You don’t attract what you want, you attract what you are”. Imagine those are the first words you ever utter in your discography. Facts.
