American Matthew quit his day job to create stuff; now he's on a cross-country, crowdfunded tour
BIYDIY: Belief in yourself, do it yourself, Mathew Nelson’s movement to liberate a generation while spreading good vibes around the country.
If there’s a theme to this collection of tracks, it’s that I’ve been sleeping. The tone here should probably be a little apologetic, even. For one, I wasn’t all that impressed with Big Sean until recently. But with the handful of tracks I’ve heard from the album so far, it looks like dude actually has a serious project on his hands. “Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay”, for example is looking like a new anthem. As far as Timber Timbre goes, I’m just glad Jesse put me up when he did. On the other hand, there are some more familiar faces here too. The grimiest Nas track in years, the latest from The Weeknd and some quality Drizzy round things out. Also, not to jump the gun, but that Thundercat album is going to be fucking crazy. Anyway, it’s the weekend. Enjoy yourself.
