Amidst some awkward background music, the good folks at Quauhtli Productions (hiatus, schmiatus) interviewed Salem standout Matty following his appearance on KMUZ 88.5FM’s Needle Cypher show. The young artist drops some game about his motivation and influences, states his opinion on classic rappers (“that’s tough, man”), plugs past and future projects and talks about the challenges rappers face in the region.

The DIY rapper is no rookie to the NW rap ish. Good guy to know if you want to expand your Oregon reach beyond Portland. Respect the grind. #OutHere
