After working behind the scenes for some of hip hop’s most exciting voices, New Jersey singer-songwriter Matty Carlock has stepped forward this year with some of his own material that branches out from his usual, featuring Albee Al, Cage, and Bulletproof Belv. Today, Matty and Belv release the visuals for their upbeat single “F Being Friends,” from Belv’s recently released With or Without You LP. Featuring a club-ready danceable beat and a catchy chorus, “F Being Friends” seamlessly fills in the gaps between rap, singer-songwriter, and pop music.
Matty is continuing to maintain his parallel (and now, overlapping) simultaneous presence in opposite worlds: coming next year is the singer-songwriter’s debut solo LP, leaning into a different aspect of local sound. Highly influenced by the patron saint of New Jersey, the collection of Springsteenian anthems includes features by Jesse Malin, Jared Hart, and the musical debut of celebrity photographer Danny Clinch. The Jailbirds will be released in early 2019 – stay tuned for more!
