After letting go of two singles and a full-length EP, Danny Matos brings us his first compilation of visuals from The Hangar. Here we have the Angel Oz Navarro-directed video for “New Genre,” the track that introduced us to his unique flavor of hip hop, and his fluidity as an emcee.
Before Danny took his talents to the booth, he was already an accomplished poet in the spoken word scene all throughout New York City. Being a rapper had always been a dream of his, and poetry just happened to be his gateway to the stage. All dreams aside, he simply thought it was more difficult to captivate an audience with words alone. So he went for it. With a determination and ferocity that cannot be taught.
His lyrics are an expression of world observations he’s found unsettling, experiences that left him with too many questions, pain that he’s hidden inside that now serves as the life-force of his verse. They’re about the truths of being human. So hear him out.
Watch the video up top, stream The Hangar in-full below, and head on over to iTunes to support his truth in art.
Budding NYC-emcee Danny Matos introduces us to a “New Genre.“
The track is the first single off of Danny’s forthcoming The Hangar EP, which he’ll let loose January 8th.
Danny’s uninhibited lyricism is a breath of fresh air. He fearlessly annihilates the mic with emotion, conviction and honesty – the key component of his new genre – over suave production, courtesy of Surf School’s Rusty Mack and the Red Walrus.
His authenticity and relatability make him an artist, and just a person, that you want to see “make it” – however he’s defined that.
Stream and download Danny’s “New Genre” below, and leave your two cents in the comments.
