BandHip HopSpoken Word

Matthew J. Smith a.k.a. “Fundamental” is a spectacular young and gifted artist. At the age of 18, he displays a great sense of lyrical wisdom. His message is a cornerstone of a purpose driven life


My music is different from your typical rap song you hear on the radio nowadays. its positive, clean, and has substance. My influences are kanye west, lupe fiasco, mos def, all real hip hop with a message. Whats sets me apart is my talent, creativity, desire to succeed, and work ethic. I'm 18 now, when i was in school i was going down the wrong path. I turned my life around, and music helped me express myself in a positive way, and ever since I realized i was really good at writing, rapping, and performing...It just took off from there


I've released an official mixtape, its called "Made you Think". i've been played on my major radio station a few times, and i have various plays on am, blog talk, podcasts, etc
