ABM What is your stage name? What inspired your stage name?
Lul Matt: I really didn’t even have to think about it. I was born with music in my blood so it just came naturally.
ABM: What is your story in terms of music, when did you start making music?
Lul Matt: I’ve been around music my whole life. I made my first song with my dad, (shoutout Matt Blaque) at 4 years old. Not only that, both sides of my family are talented musically. My mom’s side has many singers and so do my dads. So music was really always around me. Throughout my life I was making music off and on and then one day I actually started taking it seriously. I realized that I had potential in this industry so I wanted to give it a shot.
ABM: How did your upbringing in Northern California influence your career?
Lul Matt: Coming up in Northern California influenced me a lot. Being raised between the bay area and Sacramento was crucial to my musical influences. Just hearing the different sounds all around inspired me and what I wanted to sound like. Coming from Sacramento Ca I was listening to Mozzy of course and also being around the bay I was listening to legends like The Jacka, E-40, Berner, and of course whatever songs my dad was on.
ABM: Do you have any music visuals in the works?
Lul Matt: If we not working, we workin. Always planning and working on something new. Shooting a music video is just a little bit harder with everyone being in quarantine due to the virus. But trust me when I say I will be dropping new visuals all summer, I mean it. But check out my song on Thizzler called “Millionaire” featuring my Dad, Matt Blaque.
ABM: Do you have any other projects in the works?
Lul Matt: I am currently working on my first EP. This project has been in works for a while now and the vision I had for it is finally coming to life. I can’t say too much about it but just know it’s the first of many and everything we’re doing is billboard.
ABM: What inspired you to pursue being an artist professionally? Also, Tell us about your father and what role he played to inspire you.
Lul Matt: What inspired me to pursue becoming an artist professionally is the fact that I could make millions of dollars by doing what I love to do. I’m blessed enough to have access to a studio in my home so if I could sit at home all day in the studio and make millions, I don’t think there is another job that could do that for me. My dad is the reason I do music. Growing up and seeing him drop all these songs with influential artists like E-40, Philthy Rich, Mozzy, Too short, and so many others. It was always inspirational to see that.
ABM: Do you have any other lanes in music that interest you
Lul Matt: I want to learn it all. I already know how to produce, manage, engineer, so everything and anything music related whether that is behind the scenes or front and center.
ABM: Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?
Lul Matt: 5 years from now I see myself performing all around the world. The sound that I am working on is something that I feel can reach millions and millions of people. Nothing will make me happier than to share my message and my music with the world.
ABM: Who are some of the musical influences that have inspired you?
Lul Matt: My biggest musical influences in the new age just to name a few would be travis scott, roddy ricch, and dababy.
ABM: Are there any artists you would like to work with in the future?
Lul Matt: There are many artists I would want to work with in the future. Starting with a upcoming bay area artist Maj4l. I would most definitely want to want to put something in motion with him. I would also like to work with Lil Mosey. I feel like our sounds together on a record would flow perfectly.
ABM: Are there any last words or shout outs?
Lul Matt: Shoutout anybody who supports me and what I do. Big shoutouts to Moms, Pops, Uncle Dan and My nana. I’m forever in debt with them for all they do for me. None of this would be possible without them so I’m grateful. I also want to shout out the gang, any event or appearance I have they are always there for that front and center so thank y’all for that.
