"Chicago Teaching Artist Matt Muse makes music that might as well be designed to inspire his students"

On "Crewzin" he rides a sample of the Supremes' "Baby Love" as though it were a low-rider on the Pacific Coast Highway; his vocals hug the track's curves and bounces, and when he locks into the beat I can practically see him crack a smile. It's the kind of tightly constructed, self-assured song that would make a perfect inspiration for kids struggling to find their own musical voices. - Chicago Reader

"Matt Muse is back with "WHAT'S LOVE" featuring TASHA"

Matt Muse returns to FSD with his latest and greatest — this one titled “What’s Live” featuring TASHA. I will say he gets a thumbs up for using one of my favorite samples on the track. - Fake Shore Drive

"What's Love - [Matt Muse] Ft. [TASHA]"

This is the best song you will hear all day, but don’t take my word for it though, check it out for yourself below! - Lyrical Lemonade

"Matt Muse and MFnMelo put the city on their back in new video"

Melo and Muse connect to rep for the city that raised them on “On My Back.” It’s all about uniting different sides and different sounds, and these two do just that in this crispy new video.

All corners of the Chi can vibe on this one. Watch it now. - Fake Shore Drive

"Watch Matt Muse's Latest Visual for "On My Back" ft. MFnMelo"

One of Chicago’s most inspiring talents is back today with another new visual. An extremely talented rapper in his own right, Muse doubles as a teacher for Chicago’s Young Chicago Authors creative writing collective that has helped bring about some of the city’s biggest musical talents. In the highly cinematic new visual, - The Next Wave Chi


Still working on that hot first release.



Matt Muse is a Hip-Hop artist/producer from Chicago. With a bold presence, dynamic lyricism, & a one of a kind live performance, Matt Muse has become a mainstay in the Chicago Hip-Hop scene while quietly, but certainly, moving toward national recognition.

He was featured on ‘Sway in the Morning’ in the summer of 2015, and he has performed at multiple venues throughout Chicago; the most notable being headlining Chicago’s TIP Fest in July 2016 & on the September 2016 ‘AAHH! Fest’ main stage alongside J. Cole, Common, Vic Mensa, The Roots & more.

Matt was a featured speaker at the 2016 NIU TEDx event where he did a TED Talk that discussed the impact that Hip-Hop has had on his life & many others.

In March 2017, he released his debut EP The SiKK Tape via Midwest hip-hop blog Fake Shore Drive. It has since been featured in & praised by The Chicago Reader, France based music blog Da Water, as well as numerous other blogs and publications.

On March 29, 2017, Muse embarked on a 13-stop promotional tour for The SiKK Tape that spanned the Eastern and Southern parts of the United States, as well as a stop in Canada. The tour featured three shows (Cincinnati, OH, Cleveland, OH, & Bloomington, IN) where Matt performed as support on Malcolm London’s Opia Tour. Matt’s first ever tour commenced on June 28 in Toronto and served as a flawless start to a new chapter of Matt’s career and a solid boost to his listeners outside of the Midwest.

Currently, Matt is working on his debut album set to release in Spring 2018, and preparing for his headlining performance at the 2018 Taste of Chicago.
