Q: Please introduce yourself to the readers and how you first got into this field of work –and who were some of your influences growing up?

I’ve been recognized as “one of the most anticipated newcomers of the 2019 independent hip hop scene” by JussRuss Radio, labeled as “having tremendous potential of becoming one of the leaders of the new school” by Artist Sounds. My main influences as an artist are Kendrick Lamar, J Cole, and Childish Gambino.

Although I was listening to the likes of Eminem and Jay Z back home in Jamaica, when I first came to the US and went into 6th grade and 7th grade, I was introduced to these three. Their flows and messages were unmatched and impeccable, especially Kendrick’s. I listened to him almost every day because of the way he rapped and what he rapped about spoke to me. He would definitely be the biggest influence on my career and where I stand today!

Q: What moment are you most proud of?

When she heard the song, she cried and said that her whole life she’s been bullied by so many people. They’ve called her fat and said that she will never find anybody to love her. She told me to thank you for the song and it really touched her and made her into a new person. Recently I’ve seen that she started accepting herself more and that she’s proud of the way she looks, and under each of those pictures she would put “Clane Matthew- Season of Love”. And that to me was everything I’ve ever dreamed of: to change someone’s life for the better through music.
