For the past few years, Danny Matos has been making his rounds performing the art of spoken word at venues all throughout New York City – namely the Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe, Inspired Word, Sneakers and Ale among others. Within that short time, he’s become a powerful voice on the NYC spoken word poetry scene, and published his first book of poems entitled Scratching The Surface just last year. This year, Danny made the decision to pursue his ultimate dream of becoming a hip hop artist, and has taken his talents to the studio. He recently released the first single off of his forthcoming EP Nothing Without You. The track called ”Skin, With Three Sides” encompasses the idea that perception governs reality, and Danny illustrates this by offering three perspectives of how a person of color is viewed. Stream it after the jump, and stay tuned for more music from the poet-converted-emcee.

Drizzy finally gave us his thoughts on the Kendrick Lamar “Control” verse in a recent interview with Billboard magazine. Drake sounded dismissive of Kendrick’s lyrics. What do you think?
“I didn’t really have anything to say about it,” Drake says of the verse, which has so far inspired responses from A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, former Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson and too many others to count. “It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me. That’s all it was. I know good and well that Kendrick’s not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic.”
