They say that “money can’t buy happiness”. But money can, indeed, buy you a channel with truckload of YouTube videos a stone-throw away from hitting three million subscribers.
His original compositions are pretty catastrophic and according to me, a pre-teen little boy barely five ft tall chasing girls in sand-boxes and chanting “That girl is mine” seems a wee bit odd. I think Matty B is a very good rapper and a really talented kid but exposing a young mind to the macabre of internet might not have been an all-too-wise decision.
Needless to say, he did get Vanilla Ice (Yes, the nifty mind behind “Ice Ice Baby”) to feature in his own cover of the song. Vanilla Ice (Rob Van Winkle) must’ve earned himself a LOT of dough to have just stupidly gyrated in the background while young Matty stole his lines from right under his nose.
It is just something about young folks acting far too mature for their handling that stirs an indelible irritation amongst us old, talentless hags. I won’t shy away from the fact that I spent nearly two hours of my precious time (note sarcasm) cruising through his videos.
What can I say?
As Alexia Lafata rightly put,
“The kid’s got moxie.”
PS: Do check out his channel MattyBRaps and let us know how you feel and/or on a scale of 1 to 10, how much screwed up are we if this kid is the face of our future music industry?
