Matt Houston was born in Toledo, Oh on August 6, 1993. He was exposed to music at an early age due to his grandmother Doreen Robideaux being a blues musician . He was inspired to rap after hearing the album "Lupe Fiasco's The Cool" . His music is very lyrically inspired primarily by Lupe Fiasco, as well as J.Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Talib Kweli, and Ludacris. "Fuck Your Mixtape" with Cashflo is his debut mixtape, and he will be releasing a follow up solo mixtape titled "Shock The World" due before the end of 2012.
