Know by Now feat Dizz (Prod by 8 Bar) – MattyApril 22, 2013
A week ago Matty released his eighth full length album, Mr. Nice Guy 2. The album is full of soulful, well-made hip hop music, filled with emotion, honesty, and wit. “Know By Now” combines a slick beat with emotion-filled singing and well thought out rap verses. This song tells the tale of Matty’s path to the present, fighting to make it in the industry. He wants people to stop asking the same old questions, giving the same old criticisms, and just know by now that he’s on his way. The chorus really ties the song together and hooks the listener in the heart as the verses hook the head. Check it out!
BONUS: Here’s another track from Mr. Nice Guy 2. This one exemplifies his sense of fun. Not only is “Popular” treating on a fun subject, putting down the competition, and repping himself, but it samples the song “Popular” from the musical Wicked. It’s a fabulous beat, one that only suffers from a quality drop when the drum drops onto the track. Other than that jarring shift, the beat is one of the catchiest I’ve heard this year. It’s obvious that Matty is having fun on this beat; just listen for his pun. Enjoy and if you like what you hear, download the album here!
