A member of the influential local indie label Wildstyle Records, Matt Force has been putting out songs ever since 2012. It took him a while, but in 2019, he finally released his self-titled (and self-produced!) debut album, a project so well-realised that it instantly cemented his status as a leading figure in the city’s rapidly developing rap scene. While the genre – both globally and locally – is currently dominated by the sounds of trap, cloud rap, and reggaeton, Matt Force opts for classic jazzy boom-bap production instead, delivering intensely lyrical bars about the city’s social issues with his gruff yet smooth voice. No matter what type of beats he's rapping over, Matt is a force to be reckoned with (sorry, we had to).
