"Terry Gotham"

A newly minted Gotham lawyer tipped me off to this kid. This is one of those “less than 100 likes” new to the game situations. The production choices are memorable, vintage & well selected, with the rhyming that smacks of competence. This is someone who has done his homework and knows the mark they’re trying to hit. The new wave led by Chance the Rapper, Childish Gambino & dope lyricists that aren’t beholden to the world of glam or gangsta is giving us some great new sounds. This is one of them. Check their new tune (72hrs old, apologies) below. -


Rolling through my email each week I got thousands of submissions and today I had a quick
Break just to pick g my next reviews for my magazine spotlights for Vibe and Worldstar and run
Across a video from a fresh face by the name of Match Mckenzie and after reviewing the video
I noticed I remember this kid’s music and how hard his grind is on the Indie circuit so people
Tune into the hot new video from Match Mckenzie and head over to his website and show
Him some love because he is an artist on the rise. -


Still working on that hot first release.



Match McKenzie is a rapper/songwriter/producer and humanitarian. Match, is a moniker taken because of its symbolic meaning i.e. fire, competition, and inspiration; and McKenzie, is in honor of a deceased childhood friend, it acts as a reminder to Match to “Carpe Diem” – seize the day – and live each day to its fullest.  Match hails from St. Christopher Nevins (St. Kitts), British West Indies.  He has lived in London, Germany, and all over the US.  His music draws from many places, sounds, and spaces and is often motivated by his meek beginnings.  “We lived in the slums in a shed, …I’m not afraid of hard work, it was hard work that turned that shed into a house.” Match has put hard work into his craft and has collaborations with the likes of Jeezy, Loaded Lux and the Coke Boys.  

History and circumstance weigh heavily in Match’s transition from collaborative artist to center stage. Armed with powerful, infectious lyrics, this St. Kitts native is prepared to inspire and ignite perspectives.  Love, Loss, & Life are all musical pieces that come together under his artful mastery. Textures, tones and cadences are evolved and musically expanded by Miami’s underground go-go beat, heavy drums, electronic sounds, reggae, and future soul reminiscent of Match’s idols Andre 3000, Nirvana, and Buju Bantan. 

In a world heavy with redundancy Match McKenzie is a flame that stands apart - a phoenix rising to share epic themes and ideals. With a raw flow addressing modern-day challenges, he ignites imaginations with captivating stories and rhymes over virtually any type of beat; making Match – UnMatched.
