Philadelphia rapper Matt Ox releases his record “Jetlag Ft. Chief Keef” today, right on the heels of his song “Zero Degrees.” The 13-year old recently signed with Motown and will release his album “OX” on October 30, 2018.
This song is full circle moment for Matt Ox and Chief Keef, representing an endorsement, or passing of the torch, moment. Keef himself started rapping before he was in his teens. In 2017 Matt was invited to open for Chief Keef in LA at the tender age of twelve – though fair to say for Matt Ox’s twelve was a less than tender age, being very much a streetsmart kid from Philly.
Matt Ox is more than a hyperactive kid who likes fidget spinners and the anime character Death Note. With 46.7 million streams — from just a handful of singles — and a clutch of viral videos, his music caught the attention of the Working On Dying production collective, Motown Records, Chief Keef, PnB Rock, Lil Yachty, Meek Mill, Post Malone and Lil Uzi Vert and festivals such as the Mad Decent Block Party, Roots Picnic, Ill Roots and Day and Night Festival.
