"Get to Know MC"

Matthew “MC” Credle born September 2nd, 1989 is an American rapper, entrepreneur and songwriter. Growing up in urban New York City, MC was exposed to all walks of life as well as all genres of music. As a child Matthew was surrounded by nothing but music. Since age 9 that boy has grown into a young man. Studying some of the musical greats he has acquired a unique talent and ear for music. When studying musical legends MC did not only stick to the boundaries of his genre but ventured out into other genres culture. Some of his influences vary from artists like, Biggie Smalls and LL cool J to Smokey Robinson and Ray Charles. With the combining style of many of his influences MC then became an all around artists. While studying the artistic aspect of the music industry MC did not fall short of becoming an entrepreneur at an early age. With family members in the music industry he was exposed to the tricks of the trade early in life. Today he has grown into one of the most successful independent artists that Queens, NY has ever seen. With his own independent Label on the rise, MC is now doing business with celebrities he used to watch on T.V as a child. MC has the persistence, marketability and longevity it takes to survive in this industry. MC has rave reviews from many top industry executives, A&R’s, label reps, local media and social media outlets. With three Independent Projects, one Compilation Record and 2 Independent mix-tapes under his belt and growing popularity a major deal is right around the corner, but is not needed to take an artist such as MC to the next level. In Jan of 2012 MC decided to start his own Label known as “Self Made Music Ent”. This Young Business professional will not take a “NO” from anybody, and will make sure his talent is heard and seen by everyone. With his persistent hard work ethics, he plans to stay a true student of this Industry/business know as “Music”.

“I heard there’s nothing new except for someone new. While I think aloud and express my thoughts you will now Notice me; standing amongst you no longer hidden but Visible, Powerful, and Structured. Now you will think to yourself and mention to your friends that you have seen what you always thought to be true; Queens and hip Hop needed a MC. “

What’s the first thing you would say to someone when they ask you to describe yourself as an artist?
“Self Made” (laughs). I call myself Self Made because of the way I grew up. My mother raised me as a single parent; there is only so much a mother can do to raise a man. Some things I had to learn on my own. I’ve built myself as a persona and artist just by experiencing things people my age had not. I take my life experiences and express them through music, 100%
real.

How long have you been in the industry?
I’ve been in the industry for 10 years as an artist, and a student of the game. I have studied “Music business” and all of its gains in time and losses. I have been introduced to some of the greats in this business, and with their tutelage they have given me the knowledge and experience for this business that I call my playground.

Do you have any projects out now?
Right now I do have 2 Mix tapes circulating on the Internet. My 1st Independently released mix tape titled Paperwork and my valentines mixtape I released earlier this year called “Postcards From Heaven”

What inspires your music?
Life in general inspires my music. Everyone has a different story than the next man. My experiences have shaped me to be the artist I am today this includes the people around me as well. People like my D.J. “Mr. Famous”, who are around me everyday learn a lot from watching them work and listening to their advice.

Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Queens, NY. I love my city, there’s really no place like it in the world. This is where hip-hop started with some of the greats, Run DMC, LL, Nas etc. So it’s in me I’m a New Yorker to the heart (laughing)
