MattyB

MattyB — born January 6, 2003 and also known as MattyBRaps — gained recognition through Youtube. The singer, rapper, and dancer won the hearts of many when he started posting videos remixing popular music on his Youtube channel. At the beginning of his career in 2010, he has released several covers and remixes of popular music and that has catapulted his career to greater heights within a very short period of time. On August 1, 2014, MattyB hit the record by having his Youtube channel exceed one billion views. This gave him the motivation to go bigger as, in 2015, he released his much-awaited E.P., “Outside the Lines.” Then in 2016, he teamed up with Travis Thrasher to release a memoir book, “That’s a Rap.” We are overjoyed to be celebrating him today.

Background

Mathew David Morris was born on January 6, 2003, to his father, Tawny Morris, a businessman, and his mother, Blake Morris. MattyB grew up in a loving Christian household in Duluth, Georgia, with four siblings — three older brothers, Blake Jr., John Michael, and Joshua, and their sister, Sarah Grace. He graduated from a local high school in Duluth and later on, he enrolled himself into a local university in Georgia, where he is currently planning to graduate.

His interest and love for music and singing started when he was a young boy so it is no wonder that he later made a career out of it. In June 2010, he had his first song with original lyrics, a remix to ‘I Believe in You’ but his first available song that was out for purchase was the ‘Just the Way You Are’ remix. It was later re-released in August 2010 and featured Tyler Ward. In 2012, he was on the Billboard Social 50 chart with his music video, “That’s the Way.” This was such a huge opportunity for him, and his social media following had already risen dramatically since 2010. In August 2014, he skyrocketed when his Youtube channel exceeded one billion views.

MattyB’s first E.P., ” Outside the Lines,” was released in August 2015 and premiered on his Youtube page, where he had previously posted over 90 additional covers and over 20 original songs. Four original tracks were included on the E.P. In 2016, he collaborated with writer Travis Thrasher on a memoir titled “That’s a Rap.” He has been on various television shows throughout the years, including “The Wendy Williams Show,” “Today,” “WWE,” “Dr. Phil,” and “The Queen Latifah Show.”
