Matt Maratea Links With Souly Had For Light-Hearted Double Drop “Couple M’s”

Matt Maratea can do no wrong. Seriously. Everything he has sent me is pure gold – and always posted. The Western Massachusetts MC recently teamed up with NY native Souly Had for a new single AND visual to Couple M’s. Based on the title it may sound like a typical braggadocious track, and while elements do exist, they are expressed in a unique way. I’ve always admired … Continue reading Matt Maratea Links With Souly Had For Light-Hearted Double Drop “Couple M’s”

Matt Maratea & Lord Gami Go In On 808 Heavy “Say To Me”

Is there anything Matt Maratea can’t do? Shortly after hitting us with heartfelt track Angels Over Me (which I still play on the regular) he’s done a complete 360 with Say To Me.

One drop will be full of west coast flavor, another has that NY grit, and then there are his full-fledged bangers. His production choice compliments everything he puts out…another feat. His newest double drop, TALKIN’ BOUT & ANOTHA, are hard-hitting records that share his values and evoke confidence.

Matt Maratea’s 4 E V R Is The Best Music Video You’ll See Today…Promise

Massachusetts’ hip-hop is foreign territory to me. I rely on submissions to get me in tune with artists around the world. Matt Maratea is an artist out of the Western part of Mass, and one of my favorite discoveries this side of 2017. Yes, Matt can rap with a flow smooth as silk, but also has an astounding presence behind the lens.

Matt Maratea Uses The Best Of West Coast, NY & Down South Hip Hop For His Newest Track “Classy Man, Rubberbands”

Although Matt Maratea reps Massachusetts, he draws influences from hip hop around the country. His newest, Classy Man, Rubberbands, is a fusion of west coast funk with a classic New York delivery. The potent rhymes are all Matt, as he focuses on “gettin mine, gettin by and gettin fly.” He’s always been a lyrical cat, but Classy is a straight up onslaught of the BeatDwellers instrumental. Matt … Continue reading Matt Maratea Uses The Best Of West Coast, NY & Down South Hip Hop For His Newest Track “Classy Man, Rubberbands”
