Matt Muse “Shotgun” ft Femdot

Matt Muse has released single called "Shotgun" that features fellow local emcee Femdot. This is a remix of a track from Muse's 2019 album Love & Nappyness that is flushed out by a new verse from Femdot.

The track is accompanied by a video co-directed by Muse, Imaginat, Sensei Shutter and Oluwaseyi Adeleke the features the two emcees and a variety of cars. When asked Muse had this to say about the video; "My vision for the video was to create a mostly performance based visual that highlighted my life-long love for cars. I've always wanted to have a music video with a bunch of nice cars in it, not to look flashy, but because I adore the craftsmanship and detail of luxury vehicles".

   

Matt Muse “Myself”

Matt Muse has released a video for the track “Myself (Philautia II)” from his recently released EP, Love & Nappyness, that finds himself literally spending time with himself.

Here is how Matt approached the video for one of our favorite tracks from his EP. “The concept of the video is basically me taking the time with Myself to take care of Myself. The version of myself who appears in the beginning is the regular me who needs to take time to work on my insecurities. The second Matt (with the visor and polo) represents the embodiment of the positive traits and characteristics that I struggle to address/big up when I'm down and having low self-esteem. The second Matt is spending the video teaching the regular Matt how to take care of himself (Myself). I directed the video and it was shot by Interwine Productions. I wanted the video to be really funny and fun to watch.”

Matt Muse “Don’t Tweak” Video

Matt Muse has released a video for the track “Don’t Tweak” from his 2018 album Nappy Talk. The video was directed by Leo Allen II, and illustrates Matt’s vision for the song.

Here is what Matt had to say about the song and video: “'Don’t Tweak' stands as my affirmation that despite all adversity, I’ll use my voice and art to make life better for my family, homies, & the south side. The video is a fun, Robin Hood-themed answer to my question in the second verse 'How a young kid on the South Side gon sleep/When my schools closed & my mayor won’t see me?.' Chicago’s unprecedented school closings under mayor Rahm Emmanuel left a long-lasting negative impact on Chicago’s south side residents, so I chose to dedicate this video to them (us). The grind and hustle of a Chicagoan is what makes us special and unique, with the goal of making a way out of no way, by any means necessary. 'Don’t Tweak' is my ode to that grind and hustle that I’ve naturally inherited from my city.”
